Bandwidth High High
CAPEX and OPEX usually lower cost than P2P leased line links Higher than MPLS links
Quality of service Service provider QoS for prioritization of delay sensitive and mission critical traffic  Partially or no QoS
Scalability MPLS  is an efficient technology that is easily scaled Leased line ar the most difficult to scale, both because of the time needed for deployment and expense
