MPLS and VPLS are both effective solutions for establishing network connections between Virtual Private Networks (VPN) in geographically distributed locations. We carry out a detailed analysis of your Business requirements to choose one solution over another based on your unique situation.
Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a method of getting packets of data in Wide Area Network to where they’re supposed to go, by wrapping them in one or more labels, then forwarding them based on those labels (rather than their content).
The information contained in the label can be any type of data, but typically it would be IP packets and Ethernet frames containing Data, Voice or Video.
Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) allows multiple sites to be joined together as though they were on the same LAN – your Birmingham, Manchester or Leeds offices can be as easy to connect into your LAN in your London office as the three PCs in the next room.
