Connecting into a resilient multi-core network, managed centrally by Spitfire, MPLS networks bring benefits of simplicity, control and significant cost savings for your business.
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. As well as existing sites, also easily connect and access customer data centres or provide direct secure access to Azure or AWS.
We offer a complete MPLS Solution – delivering high-speed, secure, centrally managed inter-site connectivity using a wide range of circuits.

As a leading Internet Service Provider we are able to offer a wide range of connectivity options and design an MPLS multi-site data network that meets your capacity and budgetary requirements whether for a large or small business.
As MPLS is centrally managed it can significantly simplify your networking between sites and remove the need for expensive routers, configuration and ongoing complex management at each site.
Network wide performance SLAs and Class of Service options mean that our converged multi-node core network is also perfect for running Spitfire SIP trunks, hosted telephony services or other real time applications.
MPLS is also highly scalable allowing you to add new sites, connect customer data centres and even provide direct secure access in to MS Azure or Amazon Web Services as and when required.
Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a “routing protocol” used in high performance networks. It marks each data packet with a virtual label, which is then used to move the data packets from network node to another.
This provides a extremely efficient and secure method of routing data on what is effectively a private customer network protected from the Internet. This removes the need for local router configuration and the subsequent encryption which is required for secure transmission of data over the Internet when using VPNs.
A label is assigned to each data packet based on its destination in the network. 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 levels of security whilst reducing the overall cost of ownership. Standard circuit routers are used on site meaning more expensive routers and firewalls are not needed and nor is any complicated on site customer configuration and management.
The diagram below shows an example network with different IP access circuit types at each site as well as central Internet breakout which all sites can access. The MPLS cloud allows all sites to link to each other in a full mesh with a single large connection to the Internet which reduces the overall cost of Internet bandwidth, whilst improving reliability, speed and management control.
This 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.
We also offer a hosted firewall option which allows for high levels of control over how the Internet bandwidth is used and also access control levels.
