Like many Credit Unions, your CU may still be using outdated, less secure connectivity options compared to MPLS, or Multiprotocol Label Switching. In this post, we’re going to share why it makes sense for Credit Unions to be investing in MPLS technology. MPLS provides your CU with a secure network that will allow you to confidently transfer sensitive data over the internet. Let’s look at the top 3 features you should be getting excited about:
- One of the main benefits you get with MPLS is QoS or Quality of Service. This is extremely important because if you are considering a VoIP solution for your telephone needs, you will need an MPLS level strategy to achieve the highest voice quality and performance.
- Another extremely important feature, especially for financial institutions, that comes along with MPLS is enhanced security. This day in age, it is hard to trust that data sent over the internet will be secure. With an MPLS your data is going to ride a virtual private highway that will allow you to confidently have phone calls and transfer files without being concerned that the entire world is listening.
- The last benefit of MPLS that I would like to mention is built in disaster recovery. With an MPLS network, you can very easily divert data traffic to a different location should there be a disaster, security breach, or maybe you have multiple call centers setup in different locations and need the call load balanced between them.
These are just a few of the main benefits of using an MPLS network infrastructure.
