What are the Pros and Cons for implementing MPLS on a local LAN? I've gone through MPLS in my CCNP studies and MPLS is used mostly on service provider networks. I run a network of 3000 PC's a 2500 IP phones spread across a medium size city with 90% of my locations connected by fiber, what benefits would i gain by implementing MPLS?
Maybe. What is your security policy? Is it OK that you peer your network an ISP? What are your bandwidth requirements? Would a point-2-point T1 circuit be enough? What is the distance between the two networks? Could you run fiber to connect them?
my security policy doesn't address peering with an ISP i would have to say no if there no real need, secondly internal bandwidth requirements range based on who you ask. 1 gig between buildings has served well so far, and the answer to the last question yes the two networks are close so i could connect them with fiber.
