We cannot act as an MPLS edge router nor can we do MPLS label-switching, but many of our customers carry our traffic across both public and private MPLS networks.

Hootsuite (love that handle!),
As the FAQ Poster noted above, we don't participate in MPLS but we can use it and we don't do anything to break it.

Here is an example of deployment:

We use L3-MPLS to connect bigger customer sites to our data center to provide them managed services. We then use the Aerohive Branch Router concept to connect our ourselves at home. Because OSPF is used on both the MPLS routers (managed by our provider) and the CVG & branch routers (managed by us), we seamlessly have access to our customer sites from wherever we work - protected firewall rules at appropriate locations in between, of course.
