MPLS-TP: A Superior Packet-based Technology for Industrial Applications

Learn how the MPLS-TP standard adds functionality that makes the protocol significantly more effective, familiar and “SONET-like” in its operation.


A newer version of MPLS technology – MPLS-TP – is replacing traditional circuit-switched TDM backbone networks like SONET and SDH. This white paper explains how the MPLS-TP standard adds functionality that makes the protocol significantly more effective, familiar and “SONET-like” in its operation. Learn what to look for as you consider using MPLS-TP in your industrial network.

This White Paper explains:

 
  • Why MPLS technology is replacing traditional circuit-switched TDM backbone networks like SONET and SDH
  • How the TP variant of MPLS technology is better suited to industrial applications
  • How to increase predictability with bi-directional transmit and receive communications
  • Ways that MPLS-TP can support greater bandwidth demands and lower operational costs
  • What to look for as you consider using MPLS-TP in your industrial network
