An IPLC (international private leased circuit) is a point-to-point private line used by an organization to communicate between offices that are geographically dispersed throughout the world. An IPLC can be used for Internet access, business data exchange, video conferencing, and any other form of telecommunication.
To simplify IPLC ordering and billing, a concept called One Stop Shopping (OSS) was developed. OSS allows an organization to place a single order with a single carrier for two private leased circuits for two offices in two different countries. In the past, an organization had to contact each carrier in each country to order the two circuits, which included two separate invoices. OSS consolidates the billing for both circuits into a single invoice, handles all currency issues, and allows the organization to report all problems from either circuit to one carrier.
