How MPLS Networking Works

MPLS routing technology delivers your data with exceptionally low latency and packet loss. Data traverses the entire network in a single hop, eliminating the performance degradation and loss associated with memory-intensive routing decisions. MPLS routing creates a fully meshed network topology with multiple paths between any two sites—instead of the hub-and-spoke topology typically found in IPsec VPNs—and automatically forwards your data via the optimal path, ensuring it is delivered quickly without bottlenecks or single points of failure. This makes MPLS ideal for supporting performance-sensitive applications, such as VoIP and videoconferencing.

Protect Your Network with Built-in Security

Site-to-Site MPLS VPN service is a completely private network; to provide access to the Internet, traffic routes through managed security gateways or you can route traffic through a firewall at your headquarters. Note: If you use your firewall to provide Internet access, you need to purchase, install, and manage the firewall, and you need T1 or DS3 Internet circuit(s). Security gateways deliver a complete suite of Managed Security services with 24/7 proactive monitoring and management plus Internet access for your entire network—all for considerably less cost and hassle than doing it yourself.

Prioritize Your Business-Critical Applications

MegaPath Quality of Service (QoS) classifies and prioritizes your network traffic into up to four classes of service. A typical design may include separate classes for real-time applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP), business-critical traffic such as email applications, and data traffic for all other non-critical transactions. We enable QoS not only at the circuit level, but also throughout the entire MPLS network, preventing vital applications from failing due to network congestion and usage spikes.

Separate traffic into up to four classes of service:

  • Real-time
    Voice and video for MegaPath's voice services, as well as customer VoIP and video traffic
  • Critical
    For mission-critical data, such as financial transactions, credit card data, etc.
  • Business
    For enterprise applications, such as SAP, Oracle, video surveillance, etc.
  • Data
    For low-priority traffic, such as Internet browsing, FTP, etc.

MegaPath's Site-to-Site MPLS VPN service can be combined with our complete suite of managed security services and remote access VPN to create a robust, reliable enterprise-wide solution.
