MTS to converge WestJet net

TORONTO - MTS Allstream will implement a North American MPLS network solution as part of its extended service agreement with WestJet, Canada's second-largest airline. The extended agreement allows MTS Allstream to convert WestJet's 35 locations across North America to a multi-protocol label switching network that will provide WestJet with a more robust, scalable, IP converged network. This network will also give WestJet the flexibility to deploy future IP-based applications, says the telco. "We wanted to move to an MPLS network because it's the next generation of communication networks," said Steve Stretch, director, operations, WestJet, in the press
