Definition Edit

MultiProtocol Label Switching (MPLS) is

[a] standard from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) for including routing information in the packets of an IP network. Used to ensure that all packets in a particular flow take the same route over a backbone. Deployed by many telecommunications and service providers, MPLS delivers the quality of service required to support real-time voice and video as well as Service Level Agreements that guarantee bandwidth. Large enterprises may also use MPLS in their national networks.[1]
