IPoverDWDM Vs MPLS

Hi there. ....

Got simple Q:
If you have a very strong network based on DWDM. Traffic is running as IP over DWDM directly. No SONET/SDH, ATM, FrameRelay, ... etc between IP protocol and DWDM.

Would using MPLS in the network will do magic for us ?


Thanks

    More than likely no. Without more information I can't give you an absolute answer but I have seen a few companies that converted a traditional WAN solution using whatever L1/L2 connections to MPLS with the same connections and said what did that get me? Nothing more that added complexity. If it works leave it be like the sleeping dog!

    Well.... I guess you right .... I reread the question and it is really vague ...
    I'll try to reformat the question.
