Abstract

The need for improved network performance towards providing reliable services in the face of growing demand on enterprise network and internet service across all sectors of the economy has become very paramount. Latency and packet loss as quality of service (QoS) metrics are issues of concern since different multimedia applications, voice and data packets have to be delivered to end systems over long distances. This study investigated the technology behind the delivery of the packets by comparing the performance of each of IP, MPLS and MPLS-TE on the same congested WAN design. The results showed that MPLS-TE had the least latency and barely any packet loss
