Aviat Survey Finds IP/MPLS Critical to Private Network Operators (1/27/15)
Tuesday, January 27, 2015 | Comments

Aviat Networks announced a new survey that revealed that IP/multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) routing is the No. 1 networking technology choice for public safety, state/local government, utility and other non-mobile private operators in North America.

Within three years, 66 percent of survey respondents said it is "critical" or "very important" to adopt IP/MPLS in their wireless networks.

Based on the survey results, the top three reasons driving IP/MPLS adoption in North American private networks are convergence of different organizations and services onto common transport, increase in capacity, and improvement in reliability.

About 69 percent of respondents consider lack of in-house expertise with IP/MPLS the No. 1 barrier to implementation. Only 15 percent know precisely what they want to accomplish when implementing IP/MPLS, according to the survey.

“Clearly, as our survey shows, operators in vertical markets including public safety and utilities in North America know IP/MPLS is imperative for their near-term operations,” said Ola Gustafsson, senior vice president, product and services portfolio management, Aviat Networks. “However, they do not feel comfortable doing it themselves and are not even sure exactly what they should do to maximize the value of IP/MPLS.”
