MPLS Training Courses
When an organization says it "has an MPLS network" and sells "MPLS services",
what exactly does that mean?
If you are serious about being knowledgeable enough to get or keep a job in the telecom or networking industry, you need to know what an "MPLS service" is... and how that's different than the Internet, even though it's carried on the same carrier IP network as Internet traffic.
It might help to also know what is MPLS...
and why an "MPLS Service" is not the same thing as MPLS.
Hint: Service Level Agreement (SLA).
The "MPLS service" Quiz
If you are working in telecom or networking, or looking for a telecommunications job, you must be able to answer the following questions about MPLS and MPLS services. This is now part of the basic required knowledge set.
To make things easy, we're giving you the answer to the first question in advance:
1. What is an "MPLS service"?
 a) What does it do?
 b) Who uses it?
 c) What for?
"MPLS service" is the term some salespeople use to describe point-to-multipoint IP packet communications services backed up with a performance guarantee.
It is used by banks, government, military and many other organizations for secure, reliable, telephone company business quality data communications.
It moves IP packets from one specified building to one out of a set of other specified buildings. This implements a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for that customer.
A technology called MPLS is used as the mechanism for enabling and restricting the communications to those locations, and indirectly, as a Quality of Service mechanism to guarantee a contracted service quality for that customer.
It would more accurately be called "Point to multipoint IP packet communication business service backed up with a quality guarantee".
"MPLS service" is easier to say... but it is IP service not MPLS service, hence the quote marks.
2. What are two ways "MPLS service" is different than Internet service?
  a) What benefit does that bring to the customer?
3. Does it cost more?
  a) Better yet, is it costed the same way as Internet service?
4. What are two ways "MPLS service" traffic is similar to Internet traffic?
5. How do you connect to "MPLS service"?
6. What is the technology and business environment for "MPLS service" going to be in 2025?
Can you answer these questions?
