Progent's Cisco-certified Consulting Services for Cisco IOS Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Cisco IOS MPLS allows Internet Service Providers to build smart environments that deliver a broad range of services over one system. This cost-effective technology can be deployed seamlessly over any existing infrastructure, such as internet protocol, Frame Relay, or Ethernet. Since Multiprotocol Label Switching is independent of access protocols, subscribers with various connectivity links can be aggregated on an Multiprotocol Label Switching edge without changing their current environments.

Integration of Multiprotocol Label Switching application pieces such as layers 3 and 2 VPNs, MPLS-Traffic Engineering, QoS, Generalized MPLS (GMPLS), and IPV6 enables the development of highly efficient, expandable, and protected networks that ensure Service Level Agreements.

Service providers can accelerate their time to break even by as much as a quarter and achieve an additional 50% of throughput capability by implementing MPLS VPNs, MPLS Quality of Service, and MPLS Traffic Engineering rather than merely providing the baseline connectivity of VPNs. Progent's Cisco-certified CCIE consultants can assist Internet service providers with the design, set up, implementation, and support of large public network solutions that derive all the benefits of Cisco's MPLS to maximize performance, provide protected connectivity, and meet SLAs.
