Progent's Cisco Qualified Consulting Services for Cisco IOS Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Cisco IOS Multiprotocol Label Switching enables Internet Service Providers to build smart environments that deliver a wide variety of services over one infrastructure. This cost-effective solution can be deployed seamlessly across any in-place environment, such as IP, ATM, or Ethernet. Since MPLS is isolated from access protocols, customers with various connectivity interfaces can be combined on an MPLS edge without changing their existing environments.

Combining Multiprotocol Label Switching application pieces such as MPLS VPNs, MPLS-Traffic Engineering (TE), Quality of Service, Generalized MPLS, and IPV6 protocol enables the creation of high-performance, expandable, and secure network environments that ensure SLAs.

Internet service providers can accelerate their time to break even by as much as a quarter and achieve an extra 50% of throughput availability by implementing MPLS VPNs, MPLS QoS, and MPLS Traffic Engineering rather than merely installing the plain vanilla functions of Virtual Private Networks. Progent's Cisco CCIE consultants can help ISPs with the design, set up, deployment, and management of shared public network environments that derive all the benefits of Cisco's MPLS to optimize bandwidth, deliver protected connectivity, and meet service-level agreement (SLA) guarantees.
