Global MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching)


Global MPLS

MPLS- Multiprotocol Label Switching

Transworld’s ‘Global MPLS’ is a data service offering from its suite of global products. Coupled with Transworld’s own private IP backbone, ‘Global MPLS’ is able to provide our customers with a managed, secure and cost-effective network solution and can also provide network access to our mobile users.

By subscribing to ‘Global MPLS’ services, customers are able to leverage Transworld’s wide area IP network as well as our state-of-the-art network operations centre. This translates into lower costs for the customer along with simplified networking requirements.

  • Suitable for site-to-site communications in a corporate intranet (sharing information within a single organizations) or extranet (sharing information between organizations) using dedicated access.
  • Provides a solution for customers running different application types that require different performance levels.
  • A secure IP VPN solution based on the Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology for delivering the security level equivalent of Frame Relay or ATM networks.
  • Requires no investment in additional VPN equipment from the customer at their premises for encryption and tunneling – thus guaranteeing further cost savings.
  • A secure IP VPN solution delivered from the Transworld’s network instead of the customer’s premises equipment.
  • Can address different performance levels required for different applications and offers several classes of services and the associated parameters defining quality of service.
  • Gives the customers the ability to select the Class of Service (CoS) for their applications and hence achieve major cost savings.
  • Uses MPLS standards to scale the network for supporting tens of thousands of VPNs.
  • Supports any range of IP addresses. As an example, customers with private IP addresses can send their data packets directly without the need to perform Network Address Translation (NAT).
  • A high-performance solution backed by service level agreements that cover activation, availability, transit delay, packet loss, jitter and mean time to restoration.
  • Provides backup options including redundant port.

Class of Service (CoS)

The Class of Service (CoS) features for MPLS enable network administrators to provide different types of Quality of Service (QoS) across an MPLS network.

QoS can be defined as the ability to allocate network resources separately according to the type of traffic being transmitted. It includes a set of mechanisms that give network managers the ability to control the mix of bandwidth, delay, jitter and packet loss in the network.

Differentiated QoS levels satisfy a range of requirements by supplying, for each packet transmitted, the kind of service specified for that packet by its CoS.
