The Singapore-head quartered SingTel has tied up with Cisco to deploy Multiprotocol Label Switching-Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) technology for its ConnectPlus E-Line service.

With this, SingTel will become the first service provider in the Asia-Pacific region to globally deploy MPLS-TP technology.

In the coming year, SingTel will use this platform to deliver dedicated point-to-multipoint and electronic Bandwidth-On-Demand (eBOD) for ConnectPlus E-Line services.

The Cisco Carrier Packet Transport solution provides SingTel with an industry-leading space and power footprint, high density and pay-as-you-grow architecture. The standards-based platform provides key features to meet the strictest requirement in industries such as finance and transportation.

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 per cent from 2011 to 2016.

Jeff White, vice president for Cisco’s Service Provider Business in Asia Pacific, Japan and China, said: “The video, cloud, and mobile services are defining new meshed traffic patterns and placing unprecedented demands on the transport network architecture,”

“We can help our customers achieve greater business advantage by allowing them to deploy data-intensive applications such as video conferencing, multimedia, data analysis and business continuity planning,” said Goh Boon Huat, SingTel’s Vice President of Business Products.
