MPLS services: dedicated, private networking for businesses
MPLS is a technique or form of networking that gives you a completely private, dedicated network that can be linked to more than one site. Essentially, MPLS networks ensure that data gets to the place it is supposed to get to via a prioritised, specialised connection.
Why does my business need MPLS?
Connect your Multi-site business securelyAn MPLS network allows you to share information privately, quickly and securely across multiple sites

Disaster RecoveryData centers and other key sites can be connected in multiple ways and remote sites can quickly and easily reconnect to backup locations if needed.
How does it work?
Data is ‘packeted’, and forwarded at a switching level rather than a routing level. This means data flow is fast, secure and prioritised, via a high-speed connection that is centrally managed. You can add or remove users or different sites as your business changes, with little hassle.
This is particularly suitable for businesses that operate across multiple locations or sites, or have a remote working or home-working contingency. MPLS can be a powerful, flexible and cost-effective tool for any network- aside from the inter-site connectivity, data can be hosted centrally. MPLS Networks can also support VoIP.
