Vivace's technology is fast and scalable.
It will easily meld into legacy networks, yet it's design is based on the evolution
of future networks. It will endure in the new world order.
Multiprotocol Label Switching is an IP-enabling technology that integrates
Layer 2 information about network links (bandwidth, latency, and utilization)
into Layer 3 (IP) within a particular ISP to simplify and improve IP-packet
Vivace's suite of MPLS switching solutions have been designed as a solution
to help manage the fastest type of infrastructure presently in place - namely
IP. MPLS enables IP networks to handle legacy traffic in all its forms, from
all Ethernet, Frame Relay, ATM and SONET while eliminating 'fiber exhaust',
a fundamental problem for IP transport networks. Key applications of MPLS technology
include traffic management/engineering, virtual private networks (VPN) and Quality
of Service (QoS).
Traffic Engineering - using MPLS, service providers are now able to minimize
congestion by distributing traffic in a controlled manner. Traffic management
simplifies network operation, administration, maintenance and provisioning (OAM&P).
QoS - refers to network throughput levels. One of the main advantages of MPLS
is the ability to guarantee network capabilities in both quality and speed.
VPN - using MPLS, service providers can create IP tunnels throughout their
network, without the need for encryption or end-user applications.
