This article shares insights into the deployment of Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) services. Many carriers are replacing their asynchronous transfer mode wireless area network services with MPLS. Top companies are considering incorporating MPLS services into their networks. Some of the most fundamental questions users eager to test MPLS should ask are presented.
