what is the pricing on mpls is it cheaper or more expensive than traditional T1 lines
Ok so i am looking at possible a few reason i would like mpls i have a wan segragation issue between 2 sites my network connects to and second i would like the lay foundations for voip. There is 4 sites involved so with the T1 solution you.
have Dublin-UK (T1) Dulin- Dublin DR (T1) Dublin-Brussels (T1). So that is 3 T1 links we pay for. So with mpls we would need 4 links into the mpls network 1 for each site. I know it would be more effective if it was full mesh requirement scenerio etc that is really not what i am asking for a answer on though
The question really is as regard cost would each link into the mpls network be similarly price to full T1 line in my opionion it should be cheaper as you are only connecting to isp pe router while with the t1 it is a virtual circuit going through the sp and presenting at your other end point site??? I am just reading conflicting things on the net on pricing of mpls and whether it is cost effective vs t1
