Progent's Cisco-certified Consulting for Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching
Cisco IOS MPLS allows service providers to implement intelligent networks that support a wide selection of services over one infrastructure. This cost-effective technology can be deployed seamlessly across any existing infrastructure, such as internet protocol, Frame Relay, or 10BASE-T. Since Multiprotocol Label Switching is isolated from connectivity protocols, subscribers with various access interfaces can be combined on an MPLS edge without changing their current systems.

Integration of MPLS application pieces including MPLS VPNs, Traffic Engineering (TE), MPLS QoS, Generalized MPLS (GMPLS), and IPV6 allows the development of fast, scalable, and protected networks that guarantee SLAs.

Internet service providers can reduce their time to break even by as much as a quarter and realize an additional 50% of throughput capability by implementing MPLS Virtual Private Networks, MPLS QoS, and MPLS Traffic Engineering instead of only installing the bare bones functions of Virtual Private Networks. Progent's Cisco CCIE consultants can help service providers with the planning, set up, implementation, and management of large public networks that take full advantage of Cisco IOS MPLS to optimize throughput, deliver safe connectivity, and comply with service-level agreement (SLA) guarantees.
