T1's in 1 small box with built-in CSU/DSU's. Unproven?
3. Cascade. Similair to TNT approach, very exspensive untill you reach
70+ T1's in a chassis.
Cascade has a channelized DS3 card as well. Good for combining many
customers who have a physical T1. Split out at the dacs.
4. Chanellized DS3. Don't know anything about it - can MFS provide circuits
this way via a DS3 handoff? No CSU/DSU required? Any other costs/issues?
Channelized DS3 stuff only seems to be useful for putting mulitple
customers on a single physical circuit. You need to be able to break it
out to the DS1 level for each customer. Perhaps MFS, PacBell, etc can do
this? It's probably just a matter of them defining that "product".
(I.E. Feed MFS a DS3 and they give a T1 to each of your customers.)
