ViBE VRF’s in Enterprise MPLS Deployments (MPLS CONNECT)
Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a mechanism in telecommunications networks that directs data from one network node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network addresses, avoiding complex lookups in a routing table and providing for a more efficient and flexible network offering to clients who operate an MPLS environment provided by their ISP.
MPLS typically only delivers effective QoS (quality of service) for voice and data across high cost, high bandwidth links. Therefore there will be occasions where a customer in an MPLS network requires ViBE connected sites to function effectively within this technology ecosystem. With ViBE’s Virtual Route Forwarding (VRF) type functionality Enterprise MPLS customers can now introduce ViBE connected users into the network, irrespective of connectivity type and size, seamlessly getting the full benefits of ViBE where required and a comprehensive benefit from MPLS. All the ViBE features and functionality remain for the ViBE enabled members of the MPLS network.
Other ViBE functionality including RAIN Mode+ and ViBE Link Bonding are described in related product bulletins in the downloads section.
