i have been asked to write a paper on "A comparative analysis of Frame Relay and MPLS based technologies, in terms of performance" i have read through various journals and internet articles accompanied by various books.However I am finding it hard to source any goods documents on this. I am going to use OPNET modeller to create a small, medium and large network and run both protocols to test which one offers a better performance in terms of latecy, packet loss etc.

Please Help

I believe you can go for MPLS because it have lot of advantages over frame-relay starting from maintenance cost, performance and management of the network.
