SingTel announced it is the first service provider in the Asia-Pacific region to globally deploy MPLS-TP technology for its ConnectPlus E-Line service, providing its multinational business customers with scalable high-speed connections worldwide.

Using the Cisco MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) suite of Carrier Packet Transport technologies -- SingTel's customers can now enjoy data bandwidths of up to 10 gigabits per second to support bandwidth-intensive applications with high service reliability across their global offices.

 

In the coming year, SingTel will use this platform to deliver dedicated point-to-multipoint and electronic Bandwidth-On-Demand (eBOD) for ConnectPlus E-Line services.
