MPLS VPN or IPsec VPN over MPLS VPN

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?

If you want to encrypt the traffic flow, you can inplement Ipsec VPNs from CE to CE over the MPLS VPN or DMVPNs

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.

Cheers,
