Multi-Protocol Label Switch (MPLS)
Vodacom Business' VPN service is based on an MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) platform which is the next-generation network infrastructure combining flexible any-to-any communication found on the Internet with the reliability, quality and security similar to that found in privately owned and managed networks.
As a technology, the MPLS ensures that the customer's traffic is efficiently transported over the service provider's network infrastructure. Whilst it achieves this, it also guarantees traffic separation which occurs without any form of tunnelling or encryption, because it is built directly into the network itself.
