I need to configure RA VPN in ASA 5520 for about 100 mobile users.set up is

Mobile users----->internet cloud------->1mbps.router1---->ASA---->inside n/w-----router2.8mbps-------->MPLS cloud---->512 mbps.eight Branches

router1, asa, router 2 are in data centre and branches are connected via mpls.

Remote users want to access their own application, file share and mail in their respective branch network.No internet connection on branches.So all users have to come to data centre and through mpls they reache their branch network.what could be the performance and any issue?

I would pay close attention on bandwidth more than anything else, it would all depend on what type of traffic the 100 RA mobile users will be using at any given time that be traversing a 1meg pipe, for example 1 single RA user may copy 1 gig file from corporate server or vise versa which can saturate that pipe. You would have to create some sort of baseline on all link points before RA implementation to sort of get you a picture of current link utilization to plan accordinly and worry about bandwidth performance and plan accordingly.
