Optimize Network Performance

Fastmetrics network engineers provide economical, yet advanced MPLS techniques, over existing network infrastructure. Or, we build networks from scratch. We determine which label-switched paths (LSPs), should be used to create the right traffic patterns.

With Multiprotocol Label Switching, Fastmetrics creates advanced networks that come with next generation services within a single architecture. Depending on what infrastructure a business is currently working with, and what goals are for their end-to-end network communications, our engineers can leverage an existing network with value-added features or migrate to MPLS.

Improve Network Security

Managed MPLS builds upon existing network security by blocking unauthorized users and protecting against Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. Fastmetrics builds robust networks with high-level security, which deliver reliability and consistency that today’s businesses depend on.

Add Flexibility To Your Network

Consolidate, integrate, and scale – multiprotocol label switching makes it possible to operate various applications across a single network infrastructure. Our managed networks effortlessly handle bandwidth swell and the flow of data across the USA or globally. Add to or expand your network as needed. We bring essential flexibility for today’s digital era.

Set up for success with a trusted Managed Services Provider to optimize your network. At Fastmetrics, we understand the importance of reliable networking. Our tailored approach creates optimal results for customers, backed by 24-7 proactive monitoring and live Bay Area support.

More Info on Multiprotocol Label Switching

Multiprotocol Label Switching benefits are immense. Some MPLS benefits for networks include;

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

MPLS is short for Multiprotocol Label Switching. MPLS is a routing technique that uses labels, instead of network addresses. By setting up dedicated paths across networks, MPLS shapes network traffic flows, increases packet delivery speed and improves network performance.

In 1994, a MPLS-like idea called 'Cell Switch Router' was presented by Toshiba to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). In 1996, Ipsilon, Cisco and IBM announced label switching plans; 'IP Switching' and 'Tag Switching', later called 'Label Switching'. In 1997, an IETF MPLS group was created. In 1999, the first MPLS VPN was deployed.

How does MPLS improve performance? By using dedicated paths for packets every time. Routers use less time determining where to forward packets. This speeds up data flow across networks.

Is MPLS still used today? Yes, although there is debate with the emergence of SD-WAN. There are various opinions over SD-WAN vs MPLS options.
