ECI Telecom's MPLS-TP NPT Solution







Sign up for the ACG Research newsletter


ACG Research performed two analyses to compare the cost of a mobile backhaul network solution using ECI Telecom’s MPLS-TP based Native Packet Transport (NPT) to one using IP/MPLS. The first study compares a pure packet network using the topology and port requirements of an actual mobile backhaul network to support packet-only traffic requirements. Total cost of ownership (TCO) was 55% lower for the MPLS-TP solution. The second study compares the TCO of the same mobile backhaul network with TDM services added to the network. It shows that the NPT solution is much more efficient in handling the addition of TDM services than the IP/MPLS network that uses Circuit Emulation Service (CES) to handle the added TDM traffic.
