Both VPLS and MPLS provide a method for making low-latency connections between remote locations. The differences between VPLS and MPLS are still important to remember. Since VPLS networks utilize the principles of MPLS solutions, it’s not entirely accurate to view them as an “either/or” choice. Many organizations implement MPLS since it can be scaled easily, is protocol-agnostic, and is capable of handling different kinds of traffic.
VPLS solutions are more difficult to implement, but they also provide better performance, faster speeds, and better security. Since it relies on labeling to send data from one customer router to another via a single ISP switch, the information contained in the packet (such as IP addresses or routing paths) is never made available to the service provider. With VPLS, organizations retain full control over how data is routed through their networks.

As VPLS solutions become less expensive to put into place, many industries are incorporating them into their network architecture to enhance existing MPLS strategies. This is especially important for data center infrastructure, which greatly benefits from strategies that minimize latency and provide tenants with better security. With the connectivity options available in a carrier-neutral colocation facility, building high-performance VPLS solutions can help them to enhance services for their customers.
