Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) allows your business to access faster speeds, a greater Quality of Service (QoS), faster restoration of interrupted connections, around-the-clock monitoring, and increased security. Learn more about MPLS and see which carriers provide this service.
Software Defined Networking
SDN is a service that is provided at the equipment level at locations that can vary in size between small branches and large headquarter locations where a gateway is deployed at the edge. They provide the ability to prioritize traffic across an underlying internet network. So you have multiple internet connections going into this gateway and you have the ability to prioritize voice to be more important than other types of traffic going across that network.
A wide area network (WAN) is a computer network that spans across great distances typically a region or country. They can be used to transmit data to connect separate network structures together. WAN's can be connect local area networks by physical circuits or through packet switching as a virtual connection.
VPLS (Virtual Private LAN Service) is a layer 2 solution where routing is a function owned and managed by the customer. In a VPLS, the local area network (LAN) at each site is extended to the edge of the provider network. The provider network then emulates a switch or bridge to connect all of the customer LANs to create a single bridged LAN. VPLS is a way to provide Ethernet-based multipoint to multipoint communication over IP or MPLS networks.
Point to Point Networks
Point-to-Point Networks are mainly used for two locations that need to securely send sensitive or confidential data between each location. Its high performance it provides is due to the low latency of the network. For confidentiality purposes, this service doesn’t require the data traffic to be routed over the public internet, which is where many breaches in security can happen.
