End-to-end services are offered city-to-city or city-to-landing station across the EASSy system. They include in-country backhaul at one or both ends and are managed end-to-end. These are ideal for customers with no arrangements for backhaul in specific locations - either at one or both ends of the connection.
Commonly know as Indefeasible Rights of Use (IRUs), these effectively give ownership of capacity on the EASSy network for the lifetime of the system - normally considered to be 25 years. There is typically a single up-front payment (or staged up-front payments), plus a small annual maintenance charge.
BENEFIT: IRUs are designed for carriers requiring the most cost-effective solution for long-term, assured bandwidth between specific locations.
