For companies with multiple locations to communicate and share information, they need an interconnection between them. And that’s where Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) comes in. When data leaves your location, and enters the service provider’s network, MPLS gives it a label that tells it where to go and what path to take to reach its correct end point. With MLPS acting as a virtual network, you are connected without having messy wires encroaching on your workspace. Do I still need MPLS? Thanks to next-generation WAN and Enterprise WAN architecture, MPLS is no longer considered an industry best practice. These connectivity options make it possible for larger companies to communicate internally faster and more efficiently. It also makes it possible for consumers to enjoy company benefits they couldn’t access in the past.
