SingTel Deploys MPLS-TP for Global Carrier Ethernet Service

SingTel has deployed Multiprotocol Label Switching-Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) as the foundation for its ConnectPlus E-Line service, which provides up to 10 Gbps of Ethernet connectivity for multinational corporations.

SingTel is using the Cisco MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) suite of Carrier Packet Transport technologies for this global deployment.

SingTel is also planning to introduce dedicated point-to-multipoint and electronic Bandwidth-On-Demand (eBOD) for ConnectPlus E-Line services over the coming year

Cisco said its Carrier Packet Transport solution provides SingTel with a network that unifies both packet and transport domains, while providing a greater degree of freedom in terms of network topology demands regardless of its customers' locations, traffic conditions and bandwidth requirements.  SingTel is one of industry's first standards-based MPLS-TP deployments.
MPLS-TP also brings predictable resiliency and simplicity to service provisioning.

"The video, cloud, and mobile services are defining new meshed traffic patterns and placing unprecedented demands on the transport network architecture.  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," stated Jeff White, Vice President for Cisco's Service Provider Business in Asia Pacific, Japan and China.
