Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS)
Our MPLS offerings allow us to offer or clients an extremely high level of network reliability and network performance. By leveraging MPLS technology, we’re able to ensure our clients critical applications and services receive the bandwidth they need to operate effectively, even during peak periods or network disruptions.
Our connectivity team works with clients to understand and define critical workflows. Once understood our team is able to prioritise different types of network traffic based on importance.
Reduce network latency by enabling traffic to be routed along the most efficient path. In addition to prioritising traffic based on its importance.
Can support large and complex networks with many sites and devices. In addition, MPLS Allows BAMITS administrators to easily manage traffic flows and route traffic along the most efficient path.
Flexible and scalable networking solution with advanced QoS capabilities, MPLS can help organizations to easily adapt to changing business needs and growth requirements.
MPLS can help to reduce the costs associated with network downtime and performance issues. MPLS can help to reduce the costs associated with managing multiple networking technologies and service providers.
Inherent redundancy and failover capabilities, allowing BAMITS administrators to reroute traffic in the event of a network outage or congestion. This can help to ensure that critical applications and services remain available and that network downtime is minimised.
Ability to isolate traffic flows between sites or locations, providing a layer of protection against unauthorised access or intrusion. In addition to creating virtual circuits or paths between network devices, MPLS can help to prevent the spread of network threats.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and how does it work?
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a networking technology that uses labels to direct data packets along predefined routes within a network. MPLS operates at Layer 2.5 of the OSI model, between the data link layer (Layer 2) and the network layer (Layer 3). MPLS routers use labels to forward data packets along pre-established paths, which can help to reduce network congestion and improve network performance.
What are the benefits of MPLS for my organization, and how can it improve my network performance, security, and reliability?
The benefits of MPLS for organizations include improved network performance, scalability, reliability, and security. MPLS can provide QoS capabilities that allow organizations to prioritize network traffic based on their importance, ensuring that critical applications and services receive the necessary bandwidth. MPLS can also provide inherent redundancy and failover capabilities that help to minimize network downtime. MPLS networks are generally more secure than traditional WAN architectures, as they use labels to route traffic rather than IP addresses, which can help to prevent network attacks and intrusions.
How does MPLS compare to other networking technologies, such as SD-WAN or traditional WAN architectures?
MPLS and SD-WAN are both networking technologies that can improve network performance, security, and reliability. MPLS is a more established technology that provides inherent redundancy and QoS capabilities, while SD-WAN is a more flexible and cost-effective solution that can improve network agility and provide advanced security features. Traditional WAN architectures are typically less flexible and scalable than MPLS or SD-WAN.
How can I implement MPLS in my organization, and what are the costs and technical requirements involved in setting up an MPLS network?
Implementing MPLS in an organisation typically involves working with a service provider to design and deploy an MPLS network. The costs and technical requirements of implementing MPLS will depend on the size and complexity of the organization’s network, as well as the desired level of QoS, redundancy, and security. MPLS requires specialized routers and networking equipment, as well as trained network administrators to manage the network.
