MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) is now available from Ubiquiti Networks with the software release (v1.8.0) for the EdgeRouter™ and EdgePoint™ Router series.
MPLS Technology Advantages
MPLS increases network efficiency, enhances scalability, and reduces costs because it uses labels, instead of IP addresses in a routing table, for faster packet forwarding in an MPLS network.
Competitive Market Advantage
MPLS allows deployment of end-to-end, layer-2 services, including Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), to customers.
Improved Connectivity Features
The new Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) feature helps to meet Service Level Agreement (SLA) guarantees. Compared to OSPF convergence times, BFD allows quicker detection of connectivity failure and recovery using alternative routes.
Gigabit IP/MPLS Routers
Ubiquiti Networks® EdgePoint and EdgeRouter devices provide a breakthrough combination of value and performance.
