MPLS

What Is MPLS?

MPLS is the short name for Multi Protocol Label Switching which allows for some of the fastest, most secure and reliable communication out there for businesses who have offices in multiple locations.

No matter where your offices are in the country, this is no longer an issue as an MPLS network can connect you. Multiprotocol Label Switching is more complex than other solutions but we can tailor a solution around your needs.

With the ability to mix and match bandwidth requirements at each individual site, it really is the only choice for multi-site connectivity. Products which can be used are broadband, Ethernet First Mile and leased lines to name a few.

MPLS Explained

One of the benefits of MPLS is that it allows you to “link together” sites using whatever data connectivity you want at each site.

This technology can bring a number of benefits to your network not just in terms of speed.

It can reduce network congestion, improve bandwidth utilisation, hide network complexity, improve user experience, and improve uptime.

It is highly scalable so it can be easily adapted to meet changing business requirements. Additional sites can be added to the network whenever needed.

With this type of solution, you are able to gain access to hosted applications, hosted VoIP, video conferencing, partner hosted apps such as Microsoft CRM, transaction processing and much more.

It also offers similar levels of security and performance compared to traditional ATM or Frame Relay private networks, but at a fraction of the cost.

  • Improved Uptime

    Data gets sent over the most suitable paths at super fast speeds

  • Connectivity Choice

    You can simply choose whichever type of connectivity you want at each site.

  • Scalabilty

    Automatically configure your network to set up more label switching paths or tunnels to allow more traffic.

  • Reduced Congestion

    An MPLS network will figure out the best and least congested path to take. This reduces latency.

  • Reliability

    This technology has been on the market for years and is still to “go to” choice for multi site businesses.

Multi Protocol Label Switching

As the intelligence resides in the MPLS network core, there is no need for any expensive VPN appliances to be located on the customer premises.

If you are looking for LAN to LAN or WAN to WAN connectivity over private networks, the ability to prioritise different applications, Any to Any connectivity (i.e. meshed or partially meshed network) or are looking at reducing networking costs and improving speed across your sites then this may be the product for you.

For extensive use of network connections, greater need for large bandwidth and demand for consistent and fast speed, it is better to rely on MPLS.

Leased lines can also do a great job when it comes to creating a stable network and delivering impressive speed. However, for businesses which have more complex requirements for networking, the design and technology for MPLS is more appropriate.

The best way to decide is usually to look at the amount of sites you have and what you want them to do. If you have 1 site and its just internet access you require then the leased line wins. Several sites and you have to be looking at MPLS.

MPLS Benefits

Aspects which make MPLS more appropriate for business

Though a leased line is also a practical choice for businesses these days because it also uses modern technology, MPLS still remains a notch higher. Some businesses, especially the multi-million and larger-scale ones, also have really high expectations when it comes to networking.

Aside from that, there are too many applications, features and innumerable users which need to utilise the network. For such scenarios, MPLS is still the best choice.

Webbed Connection

Leased lines are efficient when it comes to creating connection between two endpoints. However, creating a link among several points may require the use of MPLS.

This is also the reason why MPLS is more flexible and scalable especially for businesses that are continuously growing. Adding more features and increasing the capacity of the network can be easily done.

Bandwidth Flexibility

By simply discussing the specific needs of the business, customers can get the exact bandwidth which would be enough to support the needs of the workplace.

Some service providers even take it a step higher by offering ‘burst speed’ to their customers. This means that for a specific time or period within the day, the bandwidth would be increased to satisfy the high demand during work hours.

Quick Response Time

Data does not need to go through several interconnections just to reach its destination. Hence, the response time is much faster. Because of that, the network would be perfect for various communication means.

There will be less jittering and no lags. All thanks to the quick response time, businesses can use the network connection to the fullest by using video conferences, voice calls and even VoIP.

Intense Traffic Management

With MPLS, it is not jut about implementing QoS. With this technology, each type of traffic is classified automatically depending on the data packet. Hence, there is less or no chance that once multiple users start to access the network, the bandwidth would be jammed and congested.

This is such a big hassle for businesses because it could also slow down the speed. With MPLS, the route of each traffic is specified so there would not be any network congestion. It is perfect for data, video or audio data transmission.

More Modern Technology

A lot of people would say that MPLS is the key in “future-proofing” the business. This is actually true. Having this system is like gearing up the business not just to handle today’s modern technology but also to cope up with future technological improvements.

With a stable and efficient network, the business would be prepared for the developments that would come in the near future.

Us!

We have a price promise across the whole of the UK so not only will you get the best pricing but we can also fully tailor a solution around your exact needs.

We offer the complete MPLS solution from start to finish regardless of project size.

Hold your horses!

Before choosing any provider for MPLS, it’s imperative to compare prices too. The service agreements should also be scrutinised well so that you and the chosen service provider understand the extent of the services required.

For businesses that need a network which will support all their needs, going for MPLS is a smart choice. It’s best to discuss the exact details and requirements with us so that the MPLS network would be tailored to fit the needs of the business.

Additional Benefits

  • Smooth Running Of Multimedia Platforms

    Traffic can be badly affected when various online media platforms are running and using the network connections. With MPLS, it is easier for the network to accommodate video, audio, data and other applications which need to utilise the connections. There will be less lag and less jittery transmissions.

  • Create Scalable IP VPN's

    Through MPLS, it becomes easier to add more sites to a VPN. There is no need for the user to configure highly complex mesh tunnels, which is common in traditional approaches.

  • Reduced Network Congestion

    In most cases, the shortest link between two remote nodes may not be the perfect path to take due to congestion, plus it can make your network less attractive. MPLS can provide you with sophisticated options for traffic engineering so that you can send traffic through non standard paths. This reduces the delay in sending and receiving data, and also reduces the risk of congestion on standard paths that you have avoided using.

  • Quick Data Restoration

    Another significant role of MPLS is that it makes restoration of data a lot easier, especially if the network is not created with a backup server. If the system crashes, then not all network data would be rendered useless and unavailable.

  • Easier Traffic Management

    Having MPLS eliminated the need to utilise a multiple layer-2 network so traffic congestion is avoided. MPLS is the key in organising different types of traffic and ensuring that the flow is smooth and seemless.
