Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be transmitted in a specific time over a wireless or wired medium. It is an important factor that is used to analyze network performance, design new networks, and understand the internet. Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) originated from tag switching and enables the consolidation of applications onto a single network whilst providing the mechanism to prioritize the latency of individual applications within application classes. It is a more efficient way to transfer data between wide area networks and thus helps to reduce cost and increase bandwidth, throughput and reliability.
