Probably one of you can give a piece of advice here. I need to set a project were the customer will receive voice E1's comming from the CO (around 9) and 4 E1 for data, this last 4 are basically for Internet Connection.
Basically I have two sites to intercnnect and I was think to use the same class of equipment both ends.
Because the amount of traffic and the combination of functionalities I have the following questions that may be some one can answer here:1- The 8 CE1/T1 cards that supports the AS5400 are capable to be configured as voice and data, in order to dedicated a few amount od E1 interfaces to receives the voice channels comming form the CO on ISDN and the rest handling the Internet traffic comming from the ISP ???
2- The idea is to stablish a VPN between both sides, the AS5400 suppots it, but how heavy can be the traffic if I'm thinking also to use the gateway for VoIP ?????3 - The ISP offers E1 for the Internet connection, can I use any alternative to made the connecton thru the High Speed Serial Interfaces ????
4- Any other better equipment that I can suggest instead of this one??
