Progent's Cisco-certified Consulting Services for Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching
Cisco IOS Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) enables ISPs to build smart environments that support a wide range of functions over a single infrastructure. This economical technology can be integrated transparently across any in-place infrastructure, such as internet protocol, Frame Relay, or 10BASE-T. Because MPLS is isolated from access protocols, subscribers with differing access interfaces can be aggregated on an Multiprotocol Label Switching edge without modifying their current environments.

Combining Multiprotocol Label Switching application components such as MPLS Virtual Private Networks, Traffic Engineering (TE), Quality of Service, Generalized MPLS (GMPLS), and IPV6 allows the creation of highly efficient, expandable, and protected networks that ensure Service Level Agreements.

Service providers can accelerate their time to profitability by up to 25% and achieve an additional 50% of throughput availability by deploying MPLS VPNs, MPLS Quality of Service, and MPLS Traffic Engineering instead of merely installing the plain vanilla functions of Virtual Private Networks. Progent's Cisco qualified CCIE engineers can help ISPs with the planning, configuration, deployment, and support of next-generation public network solutions that take full advantage of MPLS to maximize bandwidth, deliver safe connectivity, and meet SLAs.
