ATLANTA –Scientific-Atlanta has extended its Prisma IP multi-service digital transport platform to include Transparent LAN Service (TLS).

TLS is a capability of the Prisma IP MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) / RPR (Resilient Packet Ring) implementation.

MPLS/RPR technology solution can reduce the number of routers required to handle network traffic. This affords more bandwidth control, only using routers where required at a few core locations.

Using Prisma IP TLS, cable operators can provide commercial customers with multi-site, extended-area LAN services to connect geographically dispersed sites over the operator’s network.

Scientific-Atlanta says cable operators already using its Prisma IP platform to deliver other data and voice services can begin offering TLS applications to their commercial customers immediately.
