Re: MPLS or Site2Site VPN

We are beginning to look into non-MPLS QoS enabled/aware Internet feeds. The desired product would give us some priority on some traffic with predictable end-to-end latency and jitter.

I will post to the list when I get further along in the process if anyone has interest.

The reason it appears MPLS won't work for us is that it introduces unnecessary complexity. Between running BGP to the cloud and the design complexity to accomodate the is not worth it.

but you do loose the traffice QoS (esp in the
internet fabric) you get with MPLS.
I'm curious...
Does anyone, anywhere run QoS in the Internet fabric,
with or without MPLS?

I know that some companies (like the one I work for)
do offer several levels of service in their MPLS core
networks. But to my way of thinking, the Internet fabric
is precisely the peering interconnections between
networks whether at an exchange point or over a private
peering connection. As far as I know, nobody uses QoS
over these connections and nobody does MPLS peering over
these connections.

Am I wrong???
