The CUDN MPLS virtual private network (MPLS VPN) service allows internal parts of institutional networks to be routed across the CUDN infrastructure, keeping them separate from the global CUDN traffic, except where explicitly interconnected.

Features and Benefits

Features & Benefits 

At client sites, the MPLS VPN is presented as a regular VLAN, which can be fed from the PoP switch to where it is required. This enables an institution to extend its internal network to other sites without needing to rent additional fibre capacity or operate its own network of routers, whilst benefiting from the redundancy, resilience, capacity and physical reach provided by the existing CUDN infrastructure.
