Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is standards-based technology that allows for the quick delivery of network packets. Within an MPLS network, data packets have labels (e.g., voice or video) and are forwarded according to the label, eliminating the need to examine the contents of the packet. The packet labels allow for proper data traffic prioritization and more efficient routing and forwarding.

This type of system is beneficial for organizations with multiple locations because it establishes a private network encompassing two or more sites. Because data is transmitted using a private wide area network (WAN), encryption isn't necessary. Combined with the packet labeling system that speeds up data forwarding and routing, this guarantees continuity across the network, high quality service, and the availability of priority data traffic.

Do you have multiple locations or is your IT located in a data center? If so, your business can benefit from MPLS services that provide guarantees concerning site-to-site data transportation.

MPLS Benefits for Your Business

An MPLS networking solution can potentially help your business in a number of ways. In addition to allowing for centralized management and just one firewall at your host location (compared to firewalls at every site), you'll have a fast, secure networking solution in place that prioritizes data. Here are some more MPLS advantages and applications to consider.
