Progent's Cisco Qualified Consulting for Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching
Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching enables Internet Service Providers to implement intelligent networks that support a wide variety of services over a single system. This economical technology can be deployed seamlessly over any existing infrastructure, such as internet protocol, ATM, or 10BASE-T. Because Multiprotocol Label Switching is isolated from connectivity technologies, customers with differing access interfaces can be aggregated on an MPLS edge without modifying their current systems.

Integration of MPLS application pieces such as Layer 3 VPNs, Layer 2 VPNs, Traffic Engineering (TE), MPLS QoS, Generalized MPLS (GMPLS), and IPV6 allows the creation of high-performance, expandable, and protected networks that guarantee SLAs.

ISPs can reduce their time to profitability by as much as a quarter and achieve an extra 50% of bandwidth capability by deploying MPLS Virtual Private Networks, MPLS Quality of Service, and MPLS Traffic Engineering rather than merely installing the baseline connectivity of Virtual Private Networks. Progent's Cisco-certified CCIE engineers can assist ISPs with the design, set up, deployment, and management of shared public network solutions that derive all the benefits of MPLS to maximize performance, provide secure connectivity, and meet SLAs.
