Just wanted some pointers, I need to implement a solution which requires a 45mb G.703 T3 full rate (DS3) circuit presented each end as Ethernet (layer 2). Plan is to terminate the serial DS3 circuit on two 3825's with the NM-1T3/E3 modules and transparently bridge the outside ethernet segments with queueing to sinulate a 45 mb ethernet layer 2 point to point to the outside routers.I have look at metrodata DS3/ethernet converters but they don't offer LLF and they queue/buffer indescriminately based on TCP based flows.
Does anyone have example config's for transparent bridging so that the two end routers will see the 45mb layer 2 ethernet link and not the two 45mb serial routers/circuit in between. Obviously CDP will be removed.
2) I have the queueing data for the 100mb/45mb reduction but has anyone played with LLF so that if the G.703 45mb central circuit is lost, the ios shuts down it's outside ethernet interfaces? I have been told to look at Embeeded Event Manager in IOS to perform such an operation, but looks extremely complicated using TCL scripts. Any other ideas?
Thanks Guys, Appreciated in Advance
