The article discusses the merits of data transmission systems. The author notes that throughout the history of local and wide area computer networks, business enterprises have been exposed to a number of computer network standards. These standards include synchronous optical networks and synchronous digital hierarchies. Ethernet systems and Multi Protocol Label Switching systems are compared in terms of implementation and support costs, transmission overhead, degree of difficulty in provisioning, and flexibility in service topology.
