For more than a decade, companies have relied on Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) to create secure, private networks using IP technology. Packets are routed securely across the service provider owned MPLS network to connected users. Companies can reach that network across the U.S. or internationally using virtually any access type, while the service provider manages routing and application prioritization.
With new business and latest technologies organizations are getting more options for their network but the priorities stay the same, to make the most of their network and IT investments and to improve operational efficiency while ensuring security of enterprise applications. According to survey, 72% of respondents cited MPLS as critical for network functionality, with improved security and is reliable with performance identified as top benefits. For these requirements, there’s no better network tool than MPLS. While MPLS may not be the best option for cloud-based applications, it remains a great tool for on-premises applications. It allows companies to connect geographically dispersed locations through high-performance WAN solution.
Here are listed some more benefits of MPLS:
As more applications and data are moved to the cloud, increased bandwidth becomes ever more important. Extending MPLS with SD-WAN can be the perfect solution for blending speed, security, band-width and cost.
SD-WAN, broadband and the Internet can help in the search for a better solution for accessing cloud applications. But by themselves, each have limitations for enterprises. MPLS can power through those limitations. MPLS can work with broadband, the Internet, and SD-WAN to complement each other and provide that strong, secure, private network that is necessary in most industries. MPLS VPNs enable enterprises to procure high-speed, cost-effective, and reliable bandwidth to run voice, video, Internet, and data applications. When organizations want to add bandwidth, they can put SD-WAN on top of MPLS with broadband Internet access.
No matter what organizations goals for future, MPLS provides a solid backbone for WAN and no new technology has changed that yet.
It’s important to pick the right provider for your MPLS solution—one who looks at your whole system and listens to your goals and plans to determine the best total solution. It should be a carrier who not only provides great performance and service for your MPLS, but who also understands how to integrate it with other options for an effective hybrid network.
