[RE: MPLS billing model]

we are still in the testing phases, but i believe that we are planning to
use a port+traffic billing scheme, if/when we go live and start trying to
sell it

And along the way see how all of us are Connected.

On the Love that abounds.
In all places at once, seemingly endless,
Like your own existence."

do you mean:

  $port + $traffic_through_port

or:

  $port + $traffic_over_vpn_tunnel

I ask this, because, it's very possible that the customer facing port
could be a VLAN trunk, and that there would be a hub-and-spoke config to
multiple leaf ports; other variations exist, as well.
