I need a head start from someone who can provide me with some basic links.. project/request came today for new small branch office in UK to have 50 users max. Only information I have so far from our PM is that my router must support G.703 unframed and that the circuits will terminate as BNC connectors at the new office then my router will connect to our UK MPLS provider equipment, I have never played with E1s as this is our first European branch office.
I would like to know at least to get started on draft WIC configuration on these questions and get a clear picture.
1- What type of WIC card will I be able to use that supports G.703 to support 2mbps speed(This is only going to be for DATA, possibly voice but in far future)
I will deploy a 2811 router.
2- I will have a total of 4MB WAN pipe, two 2MB circuits, until I get more information from the PM and more physical details from our MPLS provider in UK I can answer a bit more later if you need to ask me something, but the 1st thing that comes to mind is having two VWIC-1MFT-G703 cards or one VWIC-2MFT-G703,is this correct? could I use the VWIC-1MFT-E1 instead of the G.703s,
does VWIC-1MFT-E1 supports g.703.
I also would like to be able to bundle these two circuits just as we do with T1s using Multilink, anything special I should be aware of configuring VWIC-1MFT-G703 or E1 cards, is it the same principle as the T1s controller configuration with the exception of time slots being 1-31 for UK. What about if circuit terminates in BNC will I need any special cables to connect the G703 cards RJ45 into BNC ? any links or examples you can provide I will greately appreciate your input.
