Multiprotocol Label Switching
What is Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)?
Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is an Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) initiative designed to improve the speed, efficiency and manageability of traffic flow across IP-based networks. MPLS combines the traffic engineering capabilities of Layer 3 routing with the speed benefits of Layer 2 switching. MPLS is used in the creation of any-to-any Virtual Private Networks which need to be able to prioritize certain classes of traffic (e.g. delay-sensitive over non-delay-sensitive), differentiate levels of performance for that traffic, and deliver SLA-assured levels of bandwidth.
Why do I need Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)?
MPLS is rapidly emerging as the VPN solution of choice for medium to large multi-site enterprises for the simple reason it offers so may inherent benefit over other comparable technologies. Many of these benefits are circumstance-dependent, but the following are universally applicable.
MPLS VPNs are extremely resilient due to the fully meshed virtual cloud over which information is carried. If, for example, one link in this cloud fails, traffic is automatically redirected over another path. Access Independence
MPLS can be integrated seamlessly over any existing infrastructure, such as IP, Frame Relay, ATM, or Ethernet. Subscribers with differing access links can be aggregated on an MPLS edge without changing their current environments, as MPLS is independent of access technologies. High Bandwidth
MPLS makes high bandwidth available cost effectively. Moreover, this bandwidth can easily be turned on and off, as requirements dictate ensuring that any investment in your network is future-proof. Manageability
MPLS supports traffic engineering (ability to differentiate levels of service and prioritize delay-sensitive traffic), and Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities which makes it the perfect transport technology for converged (voice and video) networks.
What is Private IP?
Private IP (PIP) service provides customers with the ability to connect two or more locations using IP connectivity. Verizon’s Network-based Private IP service offering uses MPLS (Multiprotocol Label Switching) technology; the nature of which allows “any-to-any” connectivity and enables the customer to select a quality-of service as well as a class-of service based on their specific applications. The customer connects via a circuit to the MPLS network at the Provider Edge Router (PE). The PE represents the edge of the Verizon network.
VPN (Virtual Private Network)
With today's virtual communication technology, one organization could use some form of VPN (Virtual Private Network) to provide private and secure site-to-site connection.
Using VPN, connection between two locations could ride over public network (i.e. The Internet) while keep maintaining secure or private connection. This is done by creating logical or virtual connection between the locations that ride over any physical circuit.
There is a technology to set such connection. MPLS –
MPLS is OSI Layer-2/3 VPN approach which is using dedicated point-to-point circuit between organization site to its ISP. Unlike the previous Dedicated Circuit network, MPLS will use the ISP public network that ride over ISP IP-based network devices without deal with the customer IP information. In other word, MPLS approach is somewhat between the Dedicated Circuit approach and IPSec VPN approach.
Generally speaking, ISP network will handle the VPN aspect and use the ISP public network securely and privately; which will be transparent to the organization (the ISP customer) sites. Using MPLS, site-to-site connection is pretty much like the previous dedicated site-to-site connection between sites from the organization perspective.
