Appia Introduces Nationwide MPLS Services

Appia Communications, a leading managed communication and network services provider, today announced the addition of nationwide Multi Protocol Label Switching, or MPLS, services.

MPLS helps multi-site companies and organizations manage their branch-to-branch and remote connections. MPLS enables them to prioritize such time-sensitive applications as voice over IP and video, so that they take precedence over traffic like email and internet browsing, all across a single connection. The addition of MPLS also expands Appia’s network centers to include Atlanta, Dallas, St. Louis, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, DC, in addition to existing centers in Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, and Los Angeles.

“Appia’s MPLS product is a perfect complement to its current suite of managed services,” says Appia partner Andrew Pryfogle, president of Terrapin Solutions, LLC. “This is a very powerful technology that will save our customers money. The addition of MPLS proves that Appia is committed to being a single source for business-class solutions for our customers.”

“Customers are moving to network-based applications and services. Enterprise-grade quality and performance are therefore becoming more important,” said Victor von Schlegell, president of Appia Communications. “Our commitment to offering our customers choice makes MPLS a natural evolution for our product suite. And our expanded footprint enhances the value of our other services. Business VoIP, SIP trunks, and video conferencing all take advantage of the quality of service and network efficiency that MPLS provides.”

The MPLS offering is available for immediate purchase in all of the lower 48 states.
