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 release.www.mtsallstream.com
