Which exact 5400 model do you have ?

20 x T1 on a single box seems a bit high, you might consider getting a second router for the new circuits.

The above is not doable because:

- the HPX has 7 slots in total

- you are using 1 for CT3 and 2 for 8CT1

- in the remaining 4 slots if you add DSP cards, you get 4 * 108 = 432 max

- Hence you can only go upto 432/24 = 18 T1s total

If you use the newer AS5400XM, this is doable, as that box has higher DSP densities per slot. I see there is a trade in program for this if you are interested:
