Dear Experts,

I need to little help on understanding the requirements to upgrade our services from 1.5MB to 3MB MPLS.  If I already have the existing T1 line, do I need to have another one pulled by my local telecom company?  Or they can magically do everything on their side, and I just need to have the MPLS provider to reconfigure their router?  Please advise.  Thanks.

It's up to the vendor that is providing the servers.  If, you have the same ISP they may just order a single T1 and bond the existing one and new one.  They may order two new T1's.

I know that AT&T would order 2 new T1's.  The disadvantage of this is you pay the install charge for 2 new T1's instead of just 1.  The advantage is that you can have the new connection up and running for testing at the same time as your current connection.
