MPLS1 300x284 - Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)

An MPLS network delivers your data with exceptionally low latency and packet loss. Data traverses the entire network in a single hop, eliminating the performance degradation and loss associated with memory-intensive routing decisions.

MPLS routing creates a fully meshed network topology with multiple paths between any two sites—instead of hub-and-spoke topology—and automatically forwards your data via the optimal path, ensuring it is delivered quickly without bottlenecks or single points of failure. This makes MPLS ideal for supporting performance-sensitive applications, such as VoIP and videoconferencing, that require Quality of Service (QoS) routing.

In addition to scalability, the benefits of an MPLS network also includes:

  • Improved up-time – provides alternative network paths
  • Improved bandwidth utilization – allows multiple traffic types to traverse the network
  • Reduced network congestion – utilizes optional paths for traffic to avoid congestion
  • Improved end user experience – allows multiple Classes of Service (CoS) to different types of traffic such as VOIP and video conferencing
