MPLS stands for Multiprotocol Label Switching and is defined as “a mechanism in high-performance telecommunications networks that direct and carried data from one network node to the next, making it easy to create ‘virtual links’ between distant nodes.”

Imagine that you’re a WAN service provider, and that you make your money by leasing bandwidth to customers.
