This article discusses round-trip delay service level agreements on a worldwide MPLS network. Researchers expected to find that data would either confirm or challenge the validity of service agreements. The service level agreements of a Data center in Boston, Massachusetts and its latency in milliseconds to 20 other locations were examined. Also evaluated is standard normal distribution for business enterprises worldwide, as well as general response time and the use of bandwidth for business communication.
