In the fast-growing business world, networking has a vital role to play. The organizations are spread all over the world. The connectivity between these organizations has become somewhat typical with old traditional ways. To overcome them a new technology called multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) is being used. It has become very popular industry solutions. MPLS at present has more advantages than any other technologies like ATM, FR, Ethernet and SONET. VPN additionally takes part in security. Therefore, this MPLS network with VPN gives a good network connection. In this project, MPLS-based VPN is implemented in a collaborative environment. Three regional offices of an organization are connected with the central Web site through MPLS-based ISP’s network. The connectivity among the sites is established and further resolutions are made on the basis of MPLS labels instead of IP addresses. Moreover, it is also observable in that MPLS does not need any other tunneling protocol unlike traditional VPN’s. It builds tunnels based on labels.
