RE: MPLS VPNs or not?

Randy and Vijay are completely correct - 2547 is nothing but bad news. The
comments about MPLS VPN security seem a little out of place - they could
easily apply to Frame relay, for that matter. And nothing is stopping folks
from encrypting anything they want. The story is quite good, though - the
vendors are pushing 2547, some in the service provider community are
listening, and they will end up regreting it. L2 MPLS VPNs, like CCC and
Martini will one day provide a very nice alternative to Frame and ATM, but
there is neither a market for, nor a scalable, safe way to deliver 2547.
