MPLS VPN a Smart Solution for Multi Location Businesses

Leading telecommunications company to promote MPLS VPN as a functional and cost effective solution for multi location enterprises.


Oct 28, 2010 – GULF BREEZE, FL – ECTtelecom, a leading telecommunications provider, has begun promoting and educating their clients regarding the benefits of Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS).  MPLS may not be a household term, but it is the fastest growing wide area networking (WAN) technology and is widely used by leading carriers around the world.

As ECTtelecom president Kenny Wilder explains, “MPLS blends the performance and privacy of legacy WAN technologies (like frame relay) with the flexibility and cost advantages of internet-based networks, such as IPSec VPNs.”  Kenny explains that traditionally, when a company wants to connect its geographically different sites they would usually rely on a Frame Relay circuit, or purchase an ATM circuit or lease a dedicated telco line.  “Now the solution can be provided by the internet service provider by implementing an MPLS VPN to connect their locations” says Wilder.

Wilder goes on to tell us “We are most excited about offering our Site-to-Site MPLS VPN service because of the hassle that it eliminates for the end users.  ECTtelecom and our partners offer the collective experience of managed network service teams and can cut out the complicated, costly and time-consuming encryption devices and routing schemes that even the most sophisticated IT staffs are challenged to support.  Now, we take that responsibility off of your IT staff and offer a solution that not only performs better, but saves you time and money in the long run”.

ECTtelecom says that enterprises can streamline their operations across the country and enhance their business productivity using the MPLS VPN network.  It is possible to distribute voice, video and data across the network just as is possible in a LAN environment.  With the possibilities of multimedia services, intra-office voice calls, VoIP, video conferencing, data transfer, etc. this solution is poised to be an excellent option for multi-location enterprises looking to reduce network complexity and cost.
