Ethernet based secure VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Services) networks require to establish full mesh of VPLS tunnels between the customer sites. However, the tunnel establishment between geographically distant customer sites introduces a significantly high delay to the user traffic transportation. In this article, we propose a novel fast transmission mechanism for secure VPLS architectures to reduce the waiting time before transmitting the data and the average data transmission delay between geographically distant customer sites. The performance of proposed mechanism is analyzed by using a simulation model and a testbed implementation.
