Progent's Cisco Qualified Consulting for Cisco IOS Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Cisco IOS Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) allows ISPs to implement intelligent networks that support a broad selection of services over a single infrastructure. This cost-effective technology can be integrated seamlessly across any existing environment, such as internet protocol, ATM, or 10BASE-T. Because MPLS is isolated from connectivity protocols, subscribers with various access interfaces can be combined on an MPLS edge without changing their existing systems.

Combining MPLS application pieces such as layers 3 and 2 VPNs, Traffic Engineering (TE), Quality of Service, GMPLS, and IPV6 protocol enables the development of highly efficient, scalable, and secure network environments that ensure SLAs.

Internet service providers can reduce their time to break even by up to 25% and achieve an extra 50% of throughput availability by implementing MPLS Virtual Private Networks, MPLS Quality of Service, and MPLS Traffic Engineering instead of merely installing the baseline connectivity of VPNs. Progent's Cisco CCIE consultants can assist ISPs with the development, set up, implementation, and management of large public network environments that take full advantage of MPLS technology to optimize performance, provide safe connectivity, and comply with service level agreements.
