Have you ever heard of MPLS? Well if you did and you have no idea of what it is, then you should know that Multi Protocol Label Switching is basically a new packet forwarding technology and unlike preceding networking technologies, it just doesn't rely on 1 protocol. The main advantage of MPLS is the fact that it will provide you with next generation networking services, such as VoIP services, optical switching and QoS or Quality of service.
The main benefit of Multi Protocol Label Switching is the fact that it assigns each data packet an individual label and then, independent of the transmission protocol, it will send it across any of the various paths. The paths (LSPs) are preconfigured in the MPLS Network and they're known as being very reliable network links. As the data packet will keep on traversing the network, at each intermittent device it will be assigned a new label, until it will eventually manage to reach its destination.
So what are the advantages for you? Well, the transmission of data will rely on the knowledge of your router in what regards the network topology. So if a certain link or circuit is down, then an alternate label will be assigned by the closest router to it, which makes this network much more resistant to choppy network outages and also self-healing. As a result, no more will you ever have to worry about jitter or latency issues which are standard for traditional networks.
If you're sick and tired with surfing the internet at low speeds and always having to wait for a very long time until the pages load, then you'll definitely need to consider a MPLS Service as soon as possible. For example, optical MPLS will greatly increase the speed at which commercial data flows, which is vital for improving the transmission of sensitive or large data sets.
With that being said, these are the main aspects you need to know about MPLS technology. So what are you waiting for? Just get in touch with your local MPLS Provider and see what plan might fit your needs!
