Progent's Cisco Qualified Consulting for Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) allows service providers to build intelligent environments that support a broad variety of functions over a single infrastructure. This cost-effective solution can be integrated seamlessly over any existing environment, such as IP, ATM, or 10BASE-T. Because MPLS is isolated from connectivity protocols, customers with differing access interfaces can be combined on an MPLS edge without changing their existing environments.

Combining MPLS application pieces including MPLS Virtual Private Networks, MPLS-Traffic Engineering (TE), MPLS QoS, Generalized MPLS (GMPLS), and IPV6 allows the creation of fast, scalable, and protected network environments that ensure SLAs.

ISPs can reduce their time to break even by up to 25% and achieve an extra 50% of throughput availability by implementing MPLS VPNs, MPLS Quality of Service, and MPLS TE rather than only installing the bare bones functions of Virtual Private Networks. Progent's Cisco CCIE engineers can help service providers with the planning, set up, deployment, and provisioning of next-generation public network solutions that derive all the benefits of MPLS technology to maximize performance, deliver protected connectivity, and meet service level agreements.
