Note that ADSUs do NOT fully implement rate shaping and have interesting
buffering constraints. This can cause interesting problems.
The ADSU <> DS3 solution isn't a bad one if you are going to pull less than
about 15Mbps through the line. If you're going to pull more, then save
yourself a BOATLOAD of headaches (and heartaches) and go for the AIP card
directly in the CISCO box.
In *general*, if you're running a CISCO router, there is not all THAT much
cost justification for doing the ADSU/HSSI thing (a few thousand bucks) when
its all thrown together.
