MPLS network for voice VOIP and data - Have you? How is it? Best setup?

Last Modified: 2012-05-08
We are currently a small restaurant group that has about 8 locations with our corporate office. We are looking for a phone system to replace the current one we are using. The issue I am having is to figure out if I want to go with a dedicated PRI for the phone and keep my current setup for VPN or I am being told that MPLS (from the vendor) is the best way to go.

Has anyone used MPLS and if so - what are your thoughts on speed and QOS? I am worried by utilizing this setup for both VOICE and DATA, I might begin loosing QOS or worse yet data speeds will drop dramatically.

Can anyone help me out in trying to find the best solution to our setup?
