As the industry leader in MPLS and Carrier Ethernet, Cisco will have a strong presence at MPLS and Ethernet World Congress in Paris, France from February 7-10, 2012.

With the spotlight in the industry around cloud services, this year’s conference will focus on how MPLS as a technology can help enable and deliver cloud services and provide data center connectivity. Another hot topic is Unified MPLS – how a converged approach for mobile and wireline services can be an efficient migration path from transport to packet based networks. Leveraging a mature and proven technology such as MPLS provides many benefits in terms of cost, flexibility, and ease of implementation.
