Our Platform


Carrier MPLS

Value proposition

Our network is our customer’s network. Thanks to the flexible and innovative implementation of IP-MPLS standards, operators can use the Sparkle network to offer their corporate clients a truly international IP VPN service. Operators can extend their coverage across the globe or to specific destinations, maintaining complete control of their customers and homogenizing service features across the interconnection. Carrier MPLS is a flexible and cost-effective solution for seamless global IP MPLS service.

Description

A worldwide VPN solution based on a state-of-the-art IP MPLS multi-service backbone with up to 5 different classes of services allows the implementation of any needed convergence. Thanks to an extensive experience matured by working with many partners using multiple technologies, Sparkle is able to support flexible and smooth interconnections without using re-mapping equipment between the networks, allowing CoS and ToS transparency throughout customer VPNs. A complete set of access capabilities available in every country, allows any operator to identify the best solution to fit its needs: Ethernet, SDH, ADSL, SDSL and3G/4G access can be used to determine price and quality beyond the top-class IP-MPLS backbone.
