What is MPLS?
MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) isn’t a type of connection, it’s a technique used to enhance your network. Essentially, it sorts through and prioritises your data based on their service.
For most connections, networks need to look inside every data packet at each router to know where it’s going. It’s like having to look inside a package at every post office to find out its destination but with this type of telecommunications network it’ll label data so routers know exactly where to send the data without having to open it up.
This technique frees up bandwidth whilst linking up your workforce, ensuring both resources and network are used and shared effortlessly.
