MPLS Bandwidth Test between 2 WAN Sites


I have an MPLS network and a circuit that is 1.5 Mbps. I do not believe that I am receiving the full 1.5 Mbps speed on my WAN circuit. I want to complete a test on my own to determine the bandwdith on this circuit. I want to make sure that I am getting the full 1.5 Mbps on this circuit.

How can I test this myself? The site that I would like to test has a 2811 router and the head end router is a 7206 router. Are there any routing commands that I can use to complete this test or is there some software that is free that I can use to test this?

Thanks you for any response, Have a Great Day


Re: MPLS Bandwidth Test between 2 WAN Sites


You can try installing a network monitoring software which can gather you details about the bandwidth usage on the interface connected to the MPLS Domain.

You can do a download/upload using between your locations and try to find out whether you are able to use upto the bandwidth.

Try doing FTP upload/download from the head end and try to find out whether you are able to flex upto the subscribed limite.
