Imagine a 5,000 employee organization distributed across two states.
30 sites all connected via Private Line with old, end of life and unsupported routers.
IT folks are making a case they do not know whether they should invest in MPLS, since Private Lines have been installed at reasonable cost.
From an IP management and administrative viewpoint, please let me know concrete points MPLS could offer value and incentives to make them pay more, buy new CPE and get connected to MPLS. If you have a seen a business or case study on that, please let me know.
I would look into support issues with existing solution and quantify that into ROI to justify investment into MPLS, but I would like to get some feedback from an IP management and network management viewpoint.
