MPLS stands for Multiprotocol Label Switching.

Contrary to what some might think, this is not a type of internet connection (like fiber)

MPLS is more of a “technique” for using your internet more efficiently.

Your available usable bandwidth increases and your critical applications

like voice and video are guaranteed 100% uptime.

So we know that MPLS is a packet-labelling technique that prioritizes types of data, but how does it actually work?

Easily Access Remotest locations

For most connections, networks need to look inside every data packet at each router to know where it’s going. It’s like having to look inside a shipped package at every post office along the way to find out its final destination.

It would be a lot more efficient to have packages arrived at the post office with a destination labelled on the outside. That way, the workers could sort them without a lengthy inspection. With MPLS, an ingress router will label packets on entry to the network,


so that routers know exactly where the data is going without having to open it again and again.
