[c-nsp] CEM / SATOP without the TDM

     I'm trying to determine if there is a way to cut some equipment and 
complexity out of my network.

     I have T1 loops connecting to an aggregation device, which packages 
these up into satop frames for transport across my network. On the 
receiving end, another device demuxes satop, then creates a channelized 
ds3 with the aggregated loops. This channelized ds3 then connects to a 
cisco router, which then provides PPP over individual serial interfaces 
represented by the chan-ds3. The application here is strictly internet 
access and I don't see any need for the clocking or other features of 
't1' - it's just being used to transport PPP frames.   It seems to me 
that it should be possible to not have the demux/remux/ds3 part of this. 
I am wondering if there is any built in cisco functionality for directly 
terminating an SAToP stream into a 'circuit' that then has PPP?
