A scenario of a service provider network when heavily congested due to heavy traffic flow is brought into play to confirm the attribute of MPLS to significantly improve Latency especially in a highly congested network. The service provider network was congested by sending heavy packets through the ingress and egress port of the network. The network was simulated and ping tests were carried out from a company’s head office to one of its branch offices via the service provider network without MPLS implementation and with MPLS enabled. A graphical result showed that latency was reduced drastically with MPLS engaged as the packet forwarding technique on the same Wide Area Network (WAN).
