Network architecture uses a combination of IP networking capabilities and Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) to enable uninterruptable access to Internet, voice and real-time video while assets move from one location to the next. Users’ IP addresses and telephone numbers “follow-them,” providing portability of user data and applications.
Global MPLS networks eliminate the need for users to change providers when assets change locations such as a drilling rig moving from the Gulf of Mexico to offshore West Africa or a transoceanic vessel changing its route schedule. For clients that visit different remote sites, the network provides plug-and-play configuration of IP addresses for quick and easy connectivity.
Users’ IP addresses and phone numbers “follow them,” providing portability while a site moves or when a user moves from one site to the next.
