Multi-protocol label switching or MPLS, is a flexible and scalable approach to connect multiple sites and multiple clouds in a reliable way. By using the latest MPLS technology, we can provide an enhanced user and application experience, enabling a partial or total cloud based approach to application delivery. It is suitable for the smallest branch offices to large multi-site networks and Flexgrid can provide a fully managed solution to future-proof your business.
To ensure fast failover in the event of any link or protocol failure, Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) is enabled on our core network and CPE (Customer Premises Equipment). This allows a failover to occur in a sub-second timeframe in the event of any issue. As well as upstream to the core network, BFD can be enabled downstream from our managed CPE to customer LAN equipment.
Your MPLS network health is monitored in real time, locating and diagnosing network faults. This feature is enabled on our core network and the CPE to provide link condition awareness on which forwarding decisions will be made.
MPLS services are supported on xDSL, Fiber and even 4G/LTE connections.
The Flexgrid core network supports IPv4 and IPv6 in a dual-stack deployment. IPv6 services can be provided at the time of the initial deployment and then customers can implement IPv6 when business or technical requirements dictate.
