Teleglobe introduces MPLS-enabled global IP network

June 25, 2001
June 25, 2001--Teleglobe announced that its global IP network, GlobeSystem, is now 100 percent MPLS-enabled across multiple autonomous systems.

Teleglobe (NYSE, TSE: BCE), the e-World Communications Company, announced that its global IP network, GlobeSystem, is now 100 percent Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS)-enabled across multiple autonomous systems. Teleglobe thus claims to be the first Internet Service Provider (ISP) with the capability to offer new global IP services seamlessly over a MPLS Packet over SONET (PoS) infrastructure reaching speeds up to OC-192.

Customer service will be enhanced through decreased latency, or time delay, with information moving more rapidly to its destination. Additionally, Teleglobe's global IP network now will offer customers the ability to design and provide differentiated services over the same facility, adding features and functionality without increasing network capacity.

Teleglobe's new router technology reduces latency because it allows data to remain within the IP layer of the network as it travels from point-to-point instead of moving back and forth between the IP layer and the Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) and Frame Relay layers of the network.

At the same time, the technology incorporates within the IP layer all the features and functionality found at the other network levels. The new technology also enables both Teleglobe and its customers worldwide to segregate traffic based on QoS parameters, prioritizing it based on distinct service classes. For example, a company with a Virtual Private Network (VPN) could choose to give higher priority to videoconferencing services while assigning lower priority to e-mail or Internet traffic.
