What is MPLS?

Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a supercharged technology that delivers voice, data, and video anywhere over an entirely interconnected private network. It offers a reliable, cost-effective and safe alternative to sharing information and applications between remote workers, partners and offices. With a MPLS network, companies can restructure their operations, improve efficiency and reduce price of ownership.

This service is great for all kinds of connection including:
• ADSL
• Ethernet
• Leased lines
• EFM

MPLS services are highly scalable, with this technology, it becomes convenient to expand IT infrastructure through different sites, fresh applications and even with employees working in different locations. Multiprotocol Label Switching focuses on traffic by designating tags on data, this allows systems to function more thoroughly and dependably. This is great for companies using delay-sensitive and business-critical applications like VoIP.

Is MPLS right for my business?

MPLS for Business

Point-to-point circuits or IPsec tunnels used to be the only viable options for a business transmitting data between multiple sites. This proved to be costly and complex, both to implement and to maintain. MPLS allows businesses to create a private network that is fast, reliable and simple to administer.

MPLS is an affordable solution for any small to medium business that wishes to enable its workforce to communicate securely and efficiently between sites, staff, suppliers and customers. Wavenet can help you take advantage of the benefits of using MPLS networks, especially if your business requires any of the following:

 

The Benefits of MPLS:

 

MPLS Networks vs. Traditional Networking

Traditional technologies such as IPsec made connecting multiple sites both time-consuming and expensive. Making changes to an IPsec WAN requires changing every firewall at every site, the administration overhead increases exponentially with the number of end points.

Wavenet's MPLS networks offers outstanding scalability so configuring and deploying sites can be done easily and cost-effectively. With MPLS your WAN logically becomes a LAN. This means your remote site or home office are as easy to connect into the LAN at Headquarters as a PC in the same office. Inter-site data does not pass over the Internet, only a single firewall is required at the point of Internet breakout.

Data Prioritisation in MPLS

Wavenet MPLS can prioritise your traffic to best utilise the performance of your bandwidth. By assigning labels to the data according to the importance of delivery speed, priority is given to business-critical or delay-sensitive traffic. For example, a real-time VoIP application can be given priority over delay-tolerant traffic such as email, ensuring that the VoIP user does not experience poor call quality, it is features like this that make MPLS services such a great investment for businesses.
