Enabling next generation transport and services using unified MPLS

Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a mature packet technology that is already widely deployed and plays an important role in service providers’ packet-based networks to deliver a diverse, rich set of services and applications.

It unifies various types of backhaul traffic and offering various migration choices to service providers, enabling them to follow the evolution path that best suits their needs and preserve their existing operating environment.

While already supporting the convergence of a wide range of applications and services, MPLS is now being extended to address new transport requirements, further strengthening the case for its adoption in new market segments.

Unified MPLS technology can fully support the IP transformation, i.e. enabling smooth migration from various legacy networks to a single converged packet-based network in a simple and cost-effective way. This technology provides quality solutions, supporting per service SLA, and allows the optimization of the broadband network total cost of ownership.
