ABSTRACT
The article discusses the implementation of multi-protocol label switching network protocols (MPLS). MPLS can assist in improving network service, lowering costs and can manage data transport to ensure necessary bandwidth for voice over Internet protocol (VOIP) and streaming video. The author warns that implementing MPLS required investigation into its effect on performance. He suggests measuring vendor proposals using a request for proposal (RFP) process to ensure competitive rates. The RFP can assist in defining system requirements. Ensuring quality of service (QOS) through service level agreements (SLAs) is also advised.
