MPLS

In today’s rapidly evolving world, companies require dependable network speeds to accomplish their day-to-day and business-critical operations. MPLS, short for Multiprotocol Label Switching, optimizes all available network paths to accelerate traffic flow, avoid bottlenecks, and maximize efficiency. This is done by directing data from one network to another based on short path-based label switching techniques in place of longer, more complex ones. MPLS is a popular choice for companies with large-scale IT needs due in particular to its speed and efficiency.

Activo provides integrated MPLS network solutions that combine the efficiency of a managed service with the flexibility of a private network. By utilizing QoS (Quality of Service) standards and preferential queuing, we can ensure priority data takes first place over less significant traffic.

Since MPLS infrastructure is able to adjust to growing network demands—including greater bandwidth capabilities, VoIP, and video—it’s a tremendous asset for businesses of today as they plan and build for tomorrow.

Managed Bandwidth Services

Though an MPLS solution is ideal for larger enterprises, other managed bandwidth services, notably Layer 2 and T1, can deliver the same result at a smaller scale.

MPLS Key Considerations

How does MPLS work?

MPLS is a packet-forwarding technique with which packets are sent using pre-determined paths (rather than having them simply find their own routes to their destinations as they would with traditional IP routing). As it travels along, each router uses the label assigned to the packet to determine how it should proceed, sometimes replacing the old label (switching it) with a new one more suitable for its next stop.

This architecture makes MPLS infrastructures easier to control and more efficient since users can assign a variety of characteristics and hierarchies that give higher priority to mission-critical data like VoIP communications.

What are the benefits of MPLS?

Some of the advantages associated with MPLS include:

  • Improved network performance
  • Enhanced scalability
  • More efficient bandwidth utilization
  • Additional privacy, as an MPLS is a virtual private network (VPN) partitioned from public internet.

What is QoS and why is it important?

Quality of Service (QoS) is the ability to deliver improved service to select traffic transmitted over your networks, the ultimate goal being to provide dedicated bandwidth and control over jitter and latency.

Is MPLS a cost-effective solution for smaller organizations?

MPLS is a bandwidth management solution better suited to larger enterprises. Options that can deliver the same result at a smaller scale include Layer 2 and T1.
