I'm currently running T1 lines to my remote locations on a DS3.  I was thinking about switching over to an MPLS topology. Does anyone have pros and cons for MPLS versus Private Lines?

MPLS based networks will typically provide about the same level of performance for much less money.  IIRC for the about same price we went from a dedicated 56 Kbps link to a MPLS based connection that was guaranteed a minimum of 256 Kbps guaranteed and maximum of 768Kbps from Washington DC to London, England.

Lower cost, end to end COS/QOS, Security via encryption and dedicated routing table, high perfromance.
You will also have choices for your location connectivity, L3VPN, L2VPN, hub and spoke, Full mesh, partioal mesh, you will have many choices. Also, the carriers are trying to move you off the old T carrier data services, depends on your local loop. You can still get a T-1, T-3 with MPLS, however, it only be for the local loop portion to the carriers POP where it will be aggregated on a MPLS link. It's the way to go for the carrier as well as the customer.

Cons, you will need to migrate to the new network.
