What is MPLS VPN?
MPLS VPN acts like a private network which is designed to provide security while transmitting the data between business locations. The amalgamation of cloud services and MPLS VPNs creates a "virtual private cloud". MPLS VPNs are carried over a single carrier's network to provide enhanced security as compared to the public Internet.
What is the Difference between MPLS VPN and VPN?
Traditional VPNs function on the assumption that data is transferred over public networks, which makes it indispensable to encrypt confidential data, while MPLS VPN uses a remote private network – virtually isolated from the public Internet. It ensures that information gets transferred more securely between two locations.
How Does Managed MPLS VPN Help in Improving Business Performance
Managed MPLS VPN is a viable solution when a user is looking for high performance, simple deployment and maintenance. Some of the advantages of the MPLS VPN solution in improving business performance and productivity are as follows:
Enhances performance and traffic control
MPLS VPN can be a key factor in improving business performance for cloud applications as it helps firms in prioritising specific types of traffic which are called ‘Class of Service’ (CoS). By leveraging CoS, corporations can prioritise the traffic flow to prevent an engineer performing a huge file transfer which might disturb or cause problems a during CEO’s conference call.
Offers Reliability and Security
MPLS VPNs are performed over a single carrier’s network, which ensures reliability as the traffic is not prone to the challenges faced by the public network. It also adds another layer of security which is not offered by IPS.
MPLS VPN ensures that each website connects to other sites on the network through a single connection to the MPLS network. This has a profound impact on the amount of bandwidth required by the customer.
It is far easier to add capacity to an MPLS VPN than via traditional carrier services. The venture of cloud services and MPLS VPNs extend the premise-based network and services and result in the formation of a “virtual private cloud.”
