MPLS-TP: MPLS Geared Towards You

There’s little doubt that the need to migrate from circuit-based systems to packet-based systems is an increasingly urgent one for backbone operators of all kinds. But for a subset of these users - mostly industrial facilities operating the network for their own use - the options have been disappointing to say the least, with the leading protocol IP/MPLS, proving to be costly and complicated. Fortunately, there is a highly effective alternative.

Read our related blog post to find out more about MPLS-TP, a lesser-known protocol built especially for utilities, transportation systems and other industrial users: Need to upgrade to a packet-switched network? A specialized flavor of MPLS geared toward industrial users may be the answer for you.
For further insights, we also invite you to download the free white paper “MPLS-TP: A Superior Packet-based Technology for Industrial Applications.” It provides more information about the beneficial feature set of MPLS-TP, and how it can be a highly effective option for many types of users.
