MANSFIELD, Mass. -- Silver Server, Austria’s largest independent ISP, has deployed Telco Systems’ MPLS edge solution in an effort to scale their network to accommodate more users. The solution is based on Telco Systems’ T-Metro 7224, a provider edge (PE) MPLS device that has enabled Silver Server to backhaul their xDSL DSLAM over fiber while overcoming the limitations of VLAN shortages in their network. The new network design has lowered the overall cost of the access network while allowing it to scale to meet the demands of Silver Server’s customer base.

The T-Metro 7224 enabled Silver Server to create a seamless MPLS network over Layer 2 using pseudowires and HVPLS. “This cost-effective approach offered us an excellent enhancement to our core IP/MPLS backbone by extending the redundancy and scalability features of MPLS to our access network,” stated Christoph Lobl, senior network engineer at Silver Server. “As a unified MPLS network, management of it has been greatly simplified and we have been able to improve protection of all links and nodes with faster convergence times and better traffic engineering.”
