MPLS connects your business offices securely and effectively

By DANA BATES Subscribe to RSS | April 6th 2012 | Views:

MPLS is an acronym that stands for Multiprotocol Label switching. This is a mechanism in the telecommunications sector that transfers information from one node to another through path labels. This is an easier way that helps one to go around the cumbersome network addresses. MPLS is also compatible with a number of systems include the T1, DSL and ATM among others. It may be important for you to understand that MPLS is more of a technique than it is a service. This technique is able to handle only packets of data that are of a common characteristic. Such consistency and the ability of the technique to carry video and voice over low latency routes enables it to add additional information to that already in the data packet.

Why MPLS is effective and preferred

MPLS packets are attached at the edge routers and it is therefore possible to preset the packet will go through on the MPLS network. This means that the traffic can be engineered. Data, video and voice packets can be clustered together in terms of their individual characteristics. The traffic engineering enables this technique to be very efficient for transferring all kinds of packets. Data traffic can be sent over a low priority route and the video and voice ones can be sent over the high priority routes. This kind of engineering allows for network convergence and consequently the introduction of more complex transfer of data such as hosting and multi-cast trafficking.

MPLS networks are designed to be able to overcome faults that may be inbuilt into the hardware. Whenever a fault is detected, the data is directed to an alternate path. Quick and efficient backups can also be done using CDMA wireless. If your business has expanded and you have many offices that require to be connected through networks, the MPLS network is the best way to go about it. It would provide a cheap and effective way of linking several branches of the business together and securely. Sites can also be added or removed with a lot of ease using the MPLS technique.

MPLS allows for variety in the number of packets that can be carried over at any one time. It can take frame relay, ATM, and even IP without requiring a change in the infrastructure. This is because despite the type of data coming through the network, the MPLS labels will attach to them without any problems at all.
