MPLS-TP technology will allow up to 10 gigabits per second connections to MNCs globally

MPLS-TP, or Multiprotocol Label Switching-Transport Profile, will allow multinational corporations to access scalable high-speed connections worldwide, announced SingTel on 22 November.

Available globally, the network speeds can reach up to 10 gigabits per second, said the Singapore-based communications service provider.

SingTel will use technology from networking giant Cisco, specifically from their suite of Carrier Packet Transport technologies, according to the announcement.

MPLS-TP will create easily scalable connectivity even for short term use.

"The video, cloud, and mobile services are defining new meshed traffic patterns and placing unprecedented demands on the transport network architecture," said Jeff White, vice president for Cisco's Service Provider Business in APJ and China.

According to Cisco's Visual Networking Index, Internet traffic will reach 12 gigabytes per capita in 2016 and business Internet Protocol traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 22 percent from 2011 to 2016.
