Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is a mechanism in high-performance telecommunications networks that directs data from one network node to the next based on short path labels rather than long network addresses, avoiding complex lookups in a routing table. The labels identify virtual links (paths) between distant nodes rather than endpoints.

But, Networks take advanteges from MPLS to build VPNs. So we talk nowadays about MPLS VPN:

MPLS VPN is a family of methods for harnessing the power of multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) to create virtual private networks (VPNs). MPLS VPNs give network engineers the flexibility to transport and route several types of network traffic using the technologies of a MPLS backbone.
