How are you defining an MPLS circuit.  Are you talking about actual CE capability, or just Ethernet handoff from a private network?

IOS which supports MPLS can be taken to support any router..
But H/W actually depends upon many factor like there is B/W limitation supported by each model.
Also what type of handoff will ISP give is it ethernet or serial or something else ..because then those modules have to be supported by router.

1841--I think is cheapest and not of sale.

I was actually mistaken.  We just need a provider edge router that supports MPLS. Out of sale is not a problem. Would an additional module be needed as long as it has the correct IOS?

As per my knowledge i dont think so u will require service provider IOS . as MPLS labels are limited to Provider edge router ie PE router which is ISP lookout.

Our Customer Edge or CE router just need not worry of MPLS.

Worry of B/W which u will take and type of last mile i.e ethernt,ATM,FR,Serial whats it u need that of module which again has to be supported by router.
