Hi Jay and Andy, thanks for your input.
I was leaning towards this type of solution:
LEC OC3 --> LS1010 --> 7206
(exists) (insert) (exists)
Of course, what I do with the T1s is still a mystery. Pull 'em out of the
1010, pick up some T1 ports for the 7200, and loop 'em around? Seems ugly.
Somehow re-encapsulating the packets, if possible, would be the preferable
solution. I have no problems inserting a 1010 or similar kit if it will do
94569.shtml would seem to apply.
Jay, I'll be contacting you directly to see what you had in mind for the

This might not be what you were after, but there is a hardware solution to
this. It involves T1 circuit emulation cards (WAI-T1C-4RJ48) for a
LightStream 1010 ATM switch at the edges, which allow the T1s to be carried
in CBR PVCs through the ATM cloud. I have 3 of those cards, which I bought
tested a few years ago but never deployed. I also have several 1010 chassis
& OC-3 cards which I no longer need & could probably be persuaded to part
with. Let me know if you're interested. If this isn't applicable to your
situation, then never mind.
