MegaPath’s MPLS Service
Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is an Internet-based mechanism in high-performance telecommunication networks that directs and carries data from one network node to the next with the help of labels. It tags and prioritizes voice, video, and Internet traffic moving over the system, and assigns the traffic to the correct class of service (CoS), which ensures voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) communications and videos have optimal sound and playback quality. With MPLS, IT managers can control their bandwidth costs by prioritizing data applications. To improve packet exchange, MPLS integrates Layer 2 information about network links (bandwidth, latency, usage) into Layer 3 (IP) within a particular system or ISP.
- Speed. Routers can forward packets faster, because they only need to inspect a short label, instead of the traditional “longest-match forwarding” used at the network layer.
- Disaster Recovery. Gives network operators a great deal of flexibility to divert and route traffic around link failures, congestion, and bottlenecks.
- Connectionless Services and VPNs. Because MPLS offers a connectionless VPN, you do not need the tunnels and encryption for network privacy, eliminating significant complexity.
- Any-to-Any Connectivity. MPLS-IP VPN creates a private, meshed network of the customer’s locations and—unlike the Internet—is as secure as frame relay or ATM.
- Smooth Layer2-to-Layer3 Transition. Support for Layer 2 protocols also enables customers to smoothly transition from a traditional Layer 2 network—such as frame relay and ATM—to an MPLS-based IP VPN without making expensive and disruptive changes in their equipment or addressing.
- Flexible Addressing Support. An MPLS-based IP VPN supports any type of customer IP addressing, providing enterprises with maximum flexibility.
- Network Address Translation (NAT) is not required. Because every private address is translated to a public address, NAT typically is a significant inconvenience for large networks.
- Quality of Service (QoS). ‘Industry-best’ QoS with eight levels of Quality of Service managing different kinds of data streams based on priority and service plan.
- Improved performance. Minimize packet loss, jitter, and latency making it an ideal solution for streaming media, video, and IP voice.
