The article discusses issues related to multi-protocol label switching (MPLS). According to the article, MPLS is being forced into the spotlight as operators move to next-generation converged networks and increasingly adopt Ethernet services and transport. MPLS has finally come into adulthood and is in its money-making prime, says Mike Capuano, senior marketing manager, service provider marketing, at Cisco Systems.
