Spitfire MPLS allows customers to deploy a private managed data network linking multiple sites directly into Spitfire’s core network using a wide range of circuits, including:
As the circuits connect into a central ‘cloud’ rather than to a specific site the network is more flexible & resilient than using site to site leased lines or VPNs which require expensive routers and configuration. Adding a new site into a network is as simple as just ordering a single circuit at the new address . Spitfire will then connect this into your MPLS network, allowing data to securely route between sites without you having to set up VPNs & firewalls.
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a “routing protocol” used in high performance networks. It labels each packet with a virtual “label” which is then used to move packets from one network node to another.
A label is assigned to each packet based on destination. MPLS is currently the fastest protocol available as the forwarding decision is based on the label and not the full IP address lookup.
Spitfire provide our customers with MPLS networks which provide very high security while reducing overall cost of ownership – standard circuit routers are used on site, meaning expensive routers and firewalls are not needed, and nor is any complicated on site customer configuration and management.
An integrated Hosted Firewall service allows Spitfire to provide a centralised Internet connection, for all sites. The MPLS cloud allows all sites to link to each other in a full mesh, and when linked to the Hosted Firewall this provides external access to the Internet – having a single large connection to the Internet, through one firewall reduces the cost of Internet bandwidth, while improving reliability, speed and management control.
The Hosted Firewall service also includes a VPN Concentrator to allow secure VPN access from staff who aren’t connected to the MPLS network, so home or mobile workers can also access your network.
Spitfire MPLS is a fully managed solution and offers some outstanding options and management facilities:
In the above diagram, external Internet access is not included & could be provided by additional standard Internet circuits (of any type) at one or more sites.
Spitfire realise that your business relies on your network and that your MPLS network is integral to your business operations. We have a wide range of resilience options, from TotalCare 24 x 7 fault resolution, through to low cost back up circuits.
