You're going to have to go to at least the 7200 series... If you want
something relatively cheap to do it in and don't need much expandability,
the 7401 is a great deal..  You can get one PA (the CT3 PA I'd assume) in

The HSSI card seems to be the cheapest way to go, but there is still the 
problem of an external DSU that supports a channelized connection, which 
I am not sure which ones will. 

We're trying to terminate a bunch of DS1 circuits through a DS3, and 
I've never had to deal with this before.
