Quickly and securely route your business' private internet traffic with US Signal's MPLS network.

Multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) is a networking technology that uses labels to route traffic through the shortest path over private, wide-area networks (WANs). As a fully scalable solution, MPLS significantly improves traffic speed and minimizes user downtime over conventional routing methods that use internet protocol (IP) addresses.

US Signal's MPLS network utilizes proven synchronous optical network (SONET) and dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) transport technologies, offering clients secure Layer 3 access between multiple locations.

Our MPLS is more efficient than traditional IP routing because it sends data directly to the destination rather than transmitting it through multiple points across the internet before delivery. It also helps clients control network traffic congestion, optimize resource pooling and quickly map incoming packets. MPLS network management resources make it easy to apply controls across an entire WAN simultaneously, regardless of the number of sites.

Traffic Prioritization

Traffic Prioritization

We own the network between transport nodes, allowing technical staff to troubleshoot and resolve backbone circuit issues without contacting a third-party vendor for assistance. Companies can add a Quality of Service (QoS) option to prioritize critical traffic — like video and voice — over less demanding traffic, such as web surfing and email.


  • Burstable, dedicated bandwidth speeds ranging from 1.5 megabits per second to 10 gigabits per second.
  • The ability to deploy Any-to-Any WAN topology, replacing traditional hub-and-spoke technology.
  • A core network operating over an IP infrastructure offering DWDM and SONET-protected transport.
  • Optional pairing with our managed router service to deliver Layer 3 access on-premise.
  • The ability to tag traffic with DSCP and CoS values, prioritizing packets into predefined QoS queues.
  • Multiple access options, including US Signal's proprietary direct fiber access.

Industries That Benefit From MPLS VPN Services

MPLS is crucial for connecting corporate point-to-point locations where IP traffic is vital for operational success and the end-user experience. It works particularly well for businesses with multiple facilities, streamlining communication between data centers, warehouses, store branches and regional offices. MPLS has many benefits, from increased network performance and better bandwidth management to maximum security and higher scalability.

Some examples of the organizations that benefit from US Signal's MPLS services include:

  • Manufacturing facilities
  • Educational systems
  • Financial institutions
  • Healthcare organizations
  • Omnichannel retail businesses
  • Government agencies
  • Nonprofit operations
