IP VPN MPLS design requirements

zillah2004
I have not designed this before , I am looking to make a proposal for a manufacture company is looking to implement IP VPN over MPLS for his/her customers (30 clients) what are the recommended requirements (router, leased line, etc,,,,) for each client to have ?

Each customer site has got 10 users.

Customer right now accessing customer site through ADSL connection (Internet)

If we want to implement IP VPN MPLS , do we need to replace that ADSL connection with a leased line ? or still we can used ADSL connection ? or we have to have another connection aside from ADSL, (i.e. one connection is dedicated for IP VPN and the ADSL connection for accessing the internet )

If I am looking to use a Cisco router as Customer Edge router (CE router, because client right now does not have a Cisco router ) what type of router do I need ? what module should a router have ? , what type of ISO ?

Do I need to have any other devices beside a Cisco router ?

Regards

Here what cisco says about CE router :
http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/105/mpls_vpn.rip.html
CE routers: Use any router able to exchange routing information with its PE router.

    Note: I can find informations about the applications that are going to be used and therefore we can decide proper bandwidth.

    I would strongly suggest that you work all of these questions out with the MPLS provider. The provider I work for will provide all the expertise as well as CPE equipment and work with you to provide the appropriate access. As for the PoP that again will depend on the provider.
