Ethernet Virtual Private LAN (EVP-LAN) or E-LAN is a multipoint-to-multipoint Ethernet Virtual Connection defined by the Metro Ethernet Forum — a Carrier Ethernet equivalent of Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) or Transparent LAN Services. E-LANs typically have a distance limitation of less than 80km (50 miles).

Other types of Ethernet Virtual Connection (EVC) defined for Carrier Ethernet networking are the E-Line and E-Tree.
