Global Crossing Implements MPLS
Using a meshed network that incorporates the latest MPLS technology from industry leaders such as Juniper Networks(R), Global Crossing provides customers with unprecedented, carrier-grade Quality of Service over its entire IP backbone. MPLS-te technology enhances network manageability between the SONET and IP layers, allowing more efficient use and protection of bandwidth.
"With MPLS-based protection, we'll soon be able to surpass SONET restoral times while lowering operating costs," explained Wally Dawson, Global Crossing's executive vice president of Global Network. "MPLS gives us the tools we need to efficiently and reliably scale our IP backbone to handle our customers' bandwidth needs."
