SingTel says its use of Cisco’s Multiprotocol Label Switching-Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) carrier packet transport technologies will be used on its ConnectPlus E-Line service, which provides large SingTel customers with” scalable high-speed connections worldwide.
“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,” said Goh Boon Huat, SingTel's Vice President of Business Products.
“In the coming year, SingTel will use this platform to deliver dedicated point-to-multipoint and electronic Bandwidth-On-Demand for ConnectPlus E-Line services. MPLS-TP also brings predictable resiliency and simplicity to service provisioning. This allows SingTel to respond faster to customers' business needs and fulfil stringent service level agreements.”
Cisco’s carrier packet transport technology is designed to unify the packet and transport domains. “With MPLS-TP, SingTel is able to serve its customers with a greater degree of freedom in terms of network topology demands regardless of its customers' locations, traffic conditions and bandwidth requirements,” said Goh.
“SingTel's customers will enjoy highly flexible, resilient and cost-effective high-speed connectivity services while we embarks on building next-generation enterprise architecture which supports video and cloud services across the globe.”
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 compounded annual growth rate of 22% from 2011 to 2016.
"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 Asia Pacific.
“In deploying the Cisco Carrier Packet Transport solution, SingTel is able to simplify service fulfilment complexity and evolve the ConnectPlus suite of services into a new generation converged transport architecture ready for enabling future services."
