Progent's Cisco Qualified Consulting Services for Cisco IOS Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Cisco IOS Software Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) allows Internet Service Providers to implement smart networks that support a wide variety of services over one infrastructure. This cost-effective solution can be integrated transparently over any in-place environment, such as internet protocol, Frame Relay, or Ethernet. Because MPLS is independent of connectivity protocols, subscribers with various access interfaces can be aggregated on an Multiprotocol Label Switching edge without changing their existing systems.

Integration of Multiprotocol Label Switching application pieces such as layers 3 and 2 VPNs, Traffic Engineering (TE), MPLS QoS, Generalized MPLS (GMPLS), and IPV6 protocol enables the creation of fast, expandable, and secure network environments that ensure SLAs.

ISPs can accelerate their time to profitability by up to 25% and achieve an additional 50% of throughput capability by implementing MPLS VPNs, MPLS QoS, and MPLS TE instead of only installing the baseline connectivity of Virtual Private Networks. Progent's Cisco-certified CCIE consultants can assist Internet service providers with the planning, set up, deployment, and support of shared public network environments that take full advantage of MPLS technology to maximize throughput, deliver secure connectivity, and meet SLAs.
