we are about to terminate a 100baset connection from bell nexxia up here over
which they will be sending 120 tunnels from the various redback switches to us
spread over 12 VLANs.
this will connect all the various DSL clients to our network for us to route
traffic out our internet pipe (datacenter).

We are looking at having this terminate into a Cisco 3550 EMI to haven't all the
VLANs and Tunnel switching and so forth.  This would provide sufficient port
density for the DNS, Radius, and so forth servers wthat will also occupy the
rack in the datacenter.

Had some brief speculation on this earlier, and before actually purchasing,
wanted to make sure that this would more than likely handle our needs.  Can
anyone either with first hand experience with Bell or other such DSL service
links provide some insight and/or recommendations?
