Progent's Cisco Qualified Consulting Services for Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Cisco IOS Software MPLS allows service providers to implement intelligent networks that deliver a broad variety of services over a single infrastructure. This economical solution can be deployed transparently over any existing infrastructure, such as internet protocol, ATM, or Ethernet. Because Multiprotocol Label Switching is independent of access technologies, subscribers with various connectivity interfaces can be aggregated on an Multiprotocol Label Switching edge without modifying their current environments.

Combining Multiprotocol Label Switching application pieces such as MPLS VPNs, MPLS-Traffic Engineering, MPLS QoS, GMPLS, and IPV6 protocol enables the development of highly efficient, expandable, and protected networks that guarantee Service Level Agreements.

Service providers can reduce their time to profitability by up to a quarter and achieve an additional 50% of throughput capability by implementing MPLS Virtual Private Networks, MPLS Quality of Service, and MPLS TE instead of only installing the bare bones functions of VPNs. Progent's Cisco-certified CCIE engineers can assist Internet service providers with the planning, set up, deployment, and management of large public network environments that derive all the benefits of Cisco's MPLS to optimize performance, provide safe connectivity, and comply with service-level agreement (SLA) guarantees.
