The article reports on the influence of MPLS on multinational sourcing. It discusses the ways and ideas of running business applications such as choosing MPLS which are more economical than legacy data services, the use of different quality or classes of service, the use of MPLS any-to-any connectivity with no predefined list of players, where anyone can connect to any application at any time, and the migration from legacy data offerings to MPLS. Proper team assignments for multinational sourcing are also mentioned.
