I just posted this on serverfault.com and realized it didn't really have that much to do with "Systems Administration".
Thoughts? Maybe its too small a category to have its own site, but "sys admins" typically don't train all that much on advanced networking topics. (Or am I biased?)
When would you use MPLS?

I think you might be taking "sys admin" too literally. I think your question fits perfectly for SF.

Looks fine to me. Although you could do a bit of work making that question a little more terse and to the point.

I think if you are a sys admin asking other sys admin's about networking questions you'll get an answer that's on your level. I think if you are a systems-network hybred admin and have or are working on your CCNP and are designing an MPLS addition to your network, there's not a lot of that expertise here.

This is a perfect question for SF. Systems administration takes on all aspects of managing a network and all the services/devices hardware/software that run on it.

ISPs are businesses too, and they have professional systems admins, who have very advanced networking requirements. It may be the case that a specialist SE site would be more appropriate for those users, but their questions are perfectly OK for SF.
