An new communication network will link sites of the UK Manchester Airports Group (MAG), including Bournemouth, East Midlands, Humberside and Manchester, using multiprotocol label switched (MPLS) network, under a new three-year contract.

The system supports corporate data applications such as email, internet access and mission-critical systems to support baggage handling and control tower operations, according to vnunet.com.

It also facilitates online ticketing, supplies information to update notice boards and provides check-in details and check-in facilities for passengers.

MPLS is a protocol-agnostic packet switching mechanism that can build end-to-end networks and forward using packet-assigned labels.

MAG is a largest airport operator in the UK and Manchester Airport is the largest airport in the country outside London.
