Cisco has a new set of "VWIC" WIC modules that will do the job.

The feature you're looking for is called drop and insert.  I don't think
the channelized T1 modules for the Cisco 3640 will do it.  I don't know
about the AS5300 off the top of my head, but Cisco's web site should say.

I was doing this with an Ascend Max 6000, and it worked.  I wouldn't
recommend the Maxes, though, since unless something has changed in the
last five months, we were never able to find a software version for it
that supported v.90 and would stay up for more than a few weeks without
needing to be rebooted.  Other dial-up terminal servers should be able to
handle this too.  Look for "drop and insert" in the specs.

Inet-access is probably a better list for this discussion than nanog.

What access router would I need to take in a channelized T1 that needs to
have 6 of the lines split out for feeds to a fax server and the remaining
used for dialup POPs?  I've been looking at the Ascend/Lucent SuperPipe
and the Cisco 36xx and 53xx, but wonder if those can split out the fax
server feeds I need from the T1.

Any and all *constructive* feedback on this will be greatly appreciated.
