A network event speaker mentioned that she sees MPLS can be a "replacement to ATM" technology.
Does that make sense?
I know how MPLS can be used, but so far I haven't seen that related to replacement of ATM.
If the statement makes sense can elaborate? Thanks.
2. One could consider ATM a precursor to MPLS in that you can direct traffic via VPI/VCI. This is essentially layer 2 Psueudowires. Its a somewhat dated approach.
MPLS Provides similar functionality at Layer 3 with a few more features.
