|MPLS Pros||MPLS Cons|
Most businesses rely on MPLS services for its dependability with SLAs that guarantee latency, packet delivery, and availability. In the case of an outage, the MPLS provider resolves the issue within a stated period of time or pays the requisite penalties. However, MPLS is not budget friendly in comparison to Internet services. According to Telegeography, in Q1, 2017, median 10 Mbps direct-Internet access (DIA) prices are potentially 1/3 less expensive than MPLS. The time it takes to order and install MPLS circuits is another factor in today’s fast-paced environment. Depending on location, provisioning can take anywhere from 3-6 months.
