MPLS & IPVPN

MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) is a secure and fully managed network that allows the connection of multiple sites throughout the UK.

MPLS offers a full range of Access Types and Bandwidth Options to suit all customer requirements for both primary and backup connections. Plus with Ethernet, access options are complemented by our cost-effective ADSL, ADSL2+ and Annex M.


What is MPLS?

MPLS is a mechanism for packet forwarding in network routers. Its flexibility allows modern networks to successfully achieve Quality of Service (QoS), next generation VPN services and optical signalling.
MPLS works by tagging packets with an identifier (a label) to distinguish the LSPs (Label Switched Packets). This creates very fast and efficient forwarding engines, as the router can select the label to minimise processing.

How does my business benefit from MPLS?

The benefit of traffic management migrating to MPLS is greater reliability, increased performance and additional services. MPLS brings performance enhancements to the market through improved network service creation capabilities.

MPLS provides the security of a VPN with superior performance for business critical applications, allowing you to benefit from converging voice, data and video traffic onto the same network.

What is IPVPN?

IPVPN (Internet Protocol Virtual Private Network) uses MPLS to converge voice, video and data networks both securely and cost effectively.

IP VPN offers greater scalability and flexibility as a single VPN built using IP can support thousands of sites. IP VPN sites work together seamlessly to give flexible and scalable access via Access Bandwidths ranging from 1mb and go up to 1gb speeds.

IP VPN offers a full range of Access Types and Bandwidth Options to suit all customer requirements for both primary and backup connections. Plus with Ethernet, access options are complemented by our cost-effective ADSL, ADSL2+ and Annex M.
