      [Via Satellite 12-22-2014] To upgrade its ground stations around the world, Globalstar has selected Level 3 Communications to supply a fully meshed Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network. Globalstar is upgrading its backbone infrastructure, and chose Level 3 Communications for global connectivity and continuity.

      “By selecting Level 3’s meshed MPLS architecture, we are enhancing our reliability to provide optimal service and capabilities for our customers today and with our second generation network deployment in 2015,” said Jay Monroe, CEO of Globalstar. “Level 3 was a logical choice for many reasons, including their deep U.S. fiber footprint which we plan to use for our Terrestrial Low Power Service (TLPS) wireless broadband deployment.”
