Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS)

MPLS technology replaces individual point to point to point connections with a private network accessible by all. MPLS replaces the spoke & wheel configuration by creating a central hub. MPLS is used for speeding up network traffic flow and making it easier to manage by setting up specific paths for a given sequence of packets. MPLS supports a range of access technologies, including T1/E1, ATM, Frame Relay, and DSL.
