    I have very limited knowledge on MPLS technology.

    If the backbone network we have implements MPLS, would
    there be anything to be concentrated explicitly due to MPLS backbone
    while choosing WLAN solution i.e should the chosen WLAN products be
    having some additional functionality to leverage on the presence of
    MPLS backbone.
    MPLS works just in the backbone, ie between routers, as soon as it
    enters the destination network gateway, the packets transform to the
    normal layer 4 format as the gateway strips of the IP level headers
    and gives out layer 4 packet. The WLAN switch (or AP) we choose is
    just like a bridge connected to our network (i.e before it leaves the
    gateway). If this is considered, i see that there won't be any impact
    of mpls backbone on WLAN products to be chosen.

    Is that correct ?

    Thanks for your time.
