Multiprotocol Label Switching – MPLS


Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) can be used to deliver anything from IP VPNs to Ethernet services ranging from 10Mbps to 10Gbps, or even provision optical services utilising Dark Fibre infrastructure. The MPLS network has the ability to handle packets with particular characteristics (such as coming from a particular port or carrying traffic for a particular application) in a consistent fashion. Packets carrying real-time traffic, such as voice or video, can easily be mapped to low-latency routes across the network.

MPLS solutions from Elite are the best of business class private site-to-site connectivity. We can design the MPLS solution around your business needs, utilising various Ethernet product types such as EFM, EoFTTC, and Leased lines. Data Packets or Traffic are labelled with one or more unique labels. As each packet passes through the customers MPLS network, these labels are then added, replaced or stripped off.

Do I need an MPLS?

Any organisation with more than one location can have an MPLS. A complete solution encompasses all of the companies locations and consolidates them into one single, easily managed network. There are many methods of joining these sites, the preferred and most cost effective is to use a virtual router in one of our core POPs where all feeds will terminate and deliver your data accordingly.
