Short for Multilink Point-to-Point Protocol, an extension to the PPP protocol that allows multiple physical connections between two points to be combined into a single logical connection. The combined connections, called a bundle, provide greater bandwidth than a single connection.

Unlike channel bonding, which usually combines two channels for the duration of a connection, MP supports dynamic bandwidth allocation, which means that physical links can be added or removed from the bundle as needed.

MP works with a number of technologies, including ISDN, X.25 and Frame Relay. It is an open standard, specified in RFC 1990.
