Multiprotocol Label Switching Advantages & Benefits

The advantages of Fastmetrics Multiprotocol Label Switching are immense. MPLS can benefit your business network through;

  • Higher levels of network Quality of Service (QoS). Improve voice quality, reliability and speed.
  • Faster packet delivery.
  • Enhanced network security.
  • Easy, enterprise-wide configurations.
  • Efficient, readily-available network diagnosis, plus speedier restorations.
  • Seamless network expansion.
  • Build upon existing infrastructure, without impacting performance.

What Is MPLS?

MPLS is short for Multiprotocol Label Switching, which is a type of protocol that is used to shape network traffic flows and to increase speed.

It was created in the 1990s, to help speed up the flow of data. Switches were used to prevent routers from losing time. Back then, routers needed to stop and look up routing tables to send information across networks.

It has evolved since. Fastmetrics Network Engineers can provide economical, yet advanced MPLS techniques, over your existing network infrastructure.

Switching Creates Better Networks

As a standard today, networks are divided into numerous segments through switches. Each segment can have individual data communications, which results in load separation. This allows for multiple message frames to be in transit simultaneously.

This parallel data flow is responsible for a network performance boost and efficient communications.

With Fastmetrics managed network solutions, our dedicated Network Engineers can determine which label-switched paths (LSPs), should be used to create the right traffic patterns for a network.

Layer 3 VPNs, Layer 2 VPNs, IPV6, GMPLS, and other MPLS application components can be integrated to enhance security, efficiency, and scalability. With Multiprotocol Label Switching, Fastmetrics is able to build intelligent networks that come with advanced, next generation services, all within a single architecture.

Depending on what infrastructure a business is currently working with, and what the goals are for their end-to-end network communications, our engineers and security experts can leverage an existing system with value-added features or migrate to MPLS.

Improved Security

Managed MPLS builds upon existing network security by blocking unauthorized users and protecting against Denial of Service attacks.

This form of network security covers both data and control plane protection mechanisms for all MPLS components including Layer 2 VPNs, Layer 3 VPNs, and Traffic Engineering.

Fastmetrics builds robust networks with high-level security, which deliver reliability and consistency that today’s businesses depend on.

Flexible Networks

Consolidate, integrate, and scale – multiprotocol label switching makes it possible to operate various applications across a single network infrastructure.

Networks can effortlessly handle bandwidth swell and the dynamic flow of communications across continents or around the world. Segments are joined and new segments can be added. This not only greatly enhances the power and performance of a network, but it brings a level of flexibility that is an essential in today’s fast-paced, constantly evolving digital era.

Set your business up for success by trusting an experienced Management Services Provider to optimize the flow and pace of information across your network.

At Fastmetrics, we understand the value of multiprotocol label switching and use a tailored approach to create optimal results for our clients.
