The article focuses on the telephone survey conducted in 2005 that determines the advantages gained by business enterprises by using multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) in managing their wide area networks in the U.S. About 54 percent of the responding enterprises revealed that they are using MPLS technology in production environments report. However, only 62 percent of the current MPLS customers have deployed the technology. MPLS users have reported higher-than-average deployment of intrusion detection and content security. Enterprises deploying MPLS also acknowledged that using MPLS increased their interest in using other new Internet protocol network technologies as managed services.
