Progent's Cisco Qualified Consulting for Cisco IOS Software MPLS
Cisco IOS Software MPLS allows Internet Service Providers to build smart networks that support a wide range of services over a single infrastructure. This cost-effective solution can be integrated transparently across any existing environment, such as internet protocol, Frame Relay, or 10BASE-T. Since Multiprotocol Label Switching is independent of access technologies, subscribers with differing connectivity links can be aggregated on an MPLS edge without modifying their existing systems.

Integration of Multiprotocol Label Switching application pieces including Layer 3 VPNs, Layer 2 VPNs, MPLS-Traffic Engineering (TE), QoS, GMPLS, and IPV6 protocol allows the development of highly efficient, expandable, and protected network environments that guarantee Service Level Agreements.

Internet service providers can accelerate their time to break even by up to 25% and realize an extra 50% of bandwidth availability by deploying MPLS VPNs, MPLS Quality of Service, and MPLS Traffic Engineering instead of only installing the bare bones functions of Virtual Private Networks. Progent's Cisco-certified CCIE engineers can assist service providers with the design, configuration, deployment, and provisioning of large public network environments that take full advantage of MPLS technology to optimize throughput, deliver protected connectivity, and meet service-level agreement (SLA) guarantees.
