MPLS VPN or IPsec VPN over MPLS VPN

Unanswered Question
Jan 9th, 2009

Hi,

We are considering to order a service provider's MPLS VPN service to connect branches and HQ, but since traffic over vanilla MPLS VPN is not encrypted, I am a little concerned about the data confidentiality. Should I run IPsec VPN over MPLS VPN?

I have this problem too.

Yes Jiangu, running IPSec over MPLS should solve ur problem and will ensure security.

The only major disadvantage of this would be if u run real time applications as they need some excellent security level and QoS which sometimes is not guaranteed by a service provider.
