UC 500 Switch Port Doubt


  I have a small doubt.The Switch ports which we having in UC 500 is either L2 or L3..Why  i am asking is this one of our client is intrested to move on  Cisco UC 500 and they are having central site 40 users and in remote only 4users.Already they are using Nortel PBX in Central site. Remote site is a new branch and currently they dont have any network setup there and they are not intrested to spent more money on remote.

So suggested the following...

Central Site


UC560-T1E1-K9  (So it will support Max 138 users ....but my questions whether I need to order extra PVDM for this ..becase on Dynamic Configuration tool i dont find any PVDM included on this UC Bundle and therr is no option for Configuring PVDM??

They are having  switch connected to firewall in the existing set up.

Branch Site


uc540W-FXO-K9....Becase only 4 users will be there at remote site i suggested to take analog connection.The connection between Central site and remote site will be MPLS (either L2 or L3 not decided...).They wont have any router and switch in remote.

My question is

1)Whether we can terminate the MPLS connection in remote site with the use of UC 540?

2)Do I need to order additional PVDM as customer has existing PRI with 30 chanels?

Thanks in advance....
