Having recently initiated a global MPLS backbone network across our three offices in UK, India and ME, a telecom company based in UK, has been choosen as the service provider and single Point of contact for all issues. Conectivity bandwidth is ranging from 1-2MB across 3 sites.
I have heard a lot about MPLS and one of it's benefits appears in the form of ability to define COS.
One more that's often talked about is ease of planning 'disaster recovery'.
I have read that In a MPLS network, traffic can be easily diverted to any other location on the network in the event a particular network node becomes unavailable. Of course there has to be a host available at the other selected node, but that comes with disaster recovery planning.
Can someone throw some details on how to really go about planning an efficient DR over an MPLS backbone?
Any/all comments are welcome.
