Get Smart, Beat The Traffic

Next Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a scalable network management solution. Data packets are assigned labels and find the quickest route at the time. Packet-forwarding decisions are made solely on the contents of this label, without the need to examine the packet itself. This allows us to create efficient, private end-to-end circuits across our network for our clients.


1000s of routing options. Self-healing network protocol selects the lowest traffic route for optimal latency.

Traffic Prioritisation. Business critical data is given priority over other traffic.

High Bandwidth. 2Mbp/s up to 1Gb/s.

National reach. We have a national network that spans the country.

Scalable. We can quickly adapt your solution to meet your changing requirements.

Burstable. A data speed overdraft that you can use when your business needs it.

Secure. Our network has stringent security settings.

Point-to-point. Reliable latencies you could set your watch to.

Wires only or fully managed. We can setup the kit and connection to your specification if required.


What is MPLS?

MPLS, or Multiprotocol Label Switching, is an approved technology used to move traffic across large, multi-site networks. MPLS functions as a result of setting up specific paths for particular sequences of packets, which are identified by a label attached to each individual packet, which saves the time required for a router to look up the address to the following node of which to forward the packet to. MPLS is referred to as multi-protocol as it works with Asynchronous Transport Mode (ATM) and Internet Protocol (IP), as well as frame relay network protocols.


Who is the best MPLS service provider?

There are numerous MPLS providers throughout the UK, although at Next Connex we are committed to going the extra mile in order to provide the most resilient, enterprise-class MPLS solutions the UK has to offer. Our core network has been constructed from the ground up in order to offer diverse, ultra-reliable connectivity with QoS capability at incredible speeds. We understand that in business, time is of the utmost importance - which is why traffic can be re-routed across the Next Connex MPLS network in less than 50 milliseconds, allowing for maximum uptime in the event of a data centre outage. For firms requiring ad-hoc rapid growth, capacity can be increased in next to no time at all.


What are the benefits of MPLS?

Dependent on the application specifics and network configuration of a business, MPLS services can prove incredibly cost effective, with savings averaging between 10 and 25 per cent when compared to other data services. MPLS supports QoS, which is integral for those rolling out VOIP and video. Companies which add voice and video traffic may also witness a savings rise of as much as 45% across the entire network.

MPLS services facilitate improved disaster recovery. Remote sites can easily reconnect to other backup locations if required, making MPLS a future-proof, flexible means of recovering data.


Does my business need MPLS from Next Connex?

In the increasingly connected world of commerce, the need to connect with different locations around the country is increasing exponentially. Such expansion can create difficulties for businesses as well as some service providers, as the management of complex connections becomes difficult to administrate. Next Connex offers a completely bespoke service with user-oriented scalability, allowing for increased traffic, as and when it is needed. By opting for a flexible, high-quality service provider, your business could both save money and benefit in terms of productivity as a result of choosing MPLS from Next Connex.
