Secure, reliable business Wide Area Network at an affordable cost.
With almost weekly stories in the news about security breaches at some of the world’s biggest businesses, how can business ensure they get the best possible network security without blowing the IT budget? MPLS means you don’t have to compromise; do business over a secure private network while getting the cost-saving benefits of a shared network.
- Outsourced routing. With MPLS, the carrier handles WAN routing. This means users don’t have to, which makes MPLS operationally simpler than managing a large routed network. This means, in turn, that companies can keep fewer WAN/router engineers on staff.
- Any-to-any connectivity. Applications, like voice and video, feature any-to-any traffic patterns. MPLS makes it easy to interconnect sites with each other to handle these types of traffic patterns.
- Built-in support for Quality of Service (QoS). Virtually all commercial MPLS services feature multiple levels of QoS, meaning that users can specify latency, jitter and packet loss minimum thresholds for each type of traffic (voice, video, email, bulk file transfers, etc.). This means that, for example, the MPLS network treats latency-sensitive traffic, like voice and video, preferentially over less-sensitive traffic.
- Service-level agreements (SLAs) with delivery guarantees. Like most commercial-caliber services, MPLS comes with guarantees from the carrier when it comes to installation times and availability. That’s in contrast to consumer-grade Internet, which is typically offered on a best-effort basis.
