Bandwidth requirements double every
--Raj Jain, Ohio State University
Now that almost everyone in the world is being impacted in one way or another
by transactions on the internet, the business of doing business on the Internet
can often mean the difference between success or failure for an organization.
Initial requirements for more connections and increased bandwidth are quickly
migrating to demands for advanced IP services to enhance content hosting, broadcast
video and application outsourcing, as businesses recognize the value of the
Internet as a strategic weapon.
In response to business customer demands, Service Providers are re-evaluating
the way they design networks. They must now combine the best of circuit switched
technology such as Quality of Service (QOS) and security, with the scalability
and flexibility of IP technology. This must be done in a cost-effective manner
to maintain profit margins, so Service Providers are increasingly looking to
Multi-Protocol Label Switching or MPLS as the enabling technology for these
