Progent's Cisco-certified Consulting for Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Cisco IOS Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) allows Internet Service Providers to build smart environments that deliver a broad variety of functions over a single system. This cost-effective solution can be integrated seamlessly over any existing infrastructure, such as internet protocol, Frame Relay, or 10BASE-T. Since MPLS is independent of access protocols, subscribers with various access links can be aggregated on an Multiprotocol Label Switching edge without modifying their existing systems.

Combining Multiprotocol Label Switching application pieces including layers 3 and 2 VPNs, Traffic Engineering (TE), QoS, GMPLS, and IPV6 protocol enables the development of fast, scalable, and protected networks that guarantee Service Level Agreements.

Internet service providers can reduce their time to break even by up to 25% and realize an additional 50% of throughput availability by implementing MPLS VPNs, MPLS QoS, and MPLS Traffic Engineering as opposed to merely providing the plain vanilla connectivity of VPNs. Progent's Cisco qualified CCIE consultants can assist ISPs with the planning, set up, deployment, and management of next-generation public networks that take full advantage of Cisco's MPLS to optimize performance, provide protected connectivity, and comply with SLAs.
