Bridge to a MPLS Managed Network
We have a new ISP connection. We are using a M670 with an external interface connection to the new ISP gateway. We have an existing MPLS connection that is managed by the ISP. This connection provides data and voice (through a PRI). The phone system is a Shortel.
We will eventually migrate the entire infrastructure to the new internet connection and use SIP trunking on a new phone system. However, that will be a year or so as we have a current telco contract.
What we would like to do is somehow connect the two networks together so we can use the higher speed data of the new connection. We attempted to disconnect the existing data connection from the network and replace it with the new data connection from the M670. This did work. (Internet and phones worked) However, we were not able to access the voice network from the data network since the voice network was being delivered by the MPLS router. Is there a way to make this work?
