I've been told that bundling T1's to the same provider is a simple process and requires no downtime. Is it really just a matter of me applying the configuration on my side or do I need to involve the provider and coordinate them to also bundle their side.
I guess the question is do both sides have to be bundled if going to the same provider? I always thought that you had to work with the provider (open tickets, etc) to bundle T1s.
Thanks for any insight into this process,
For MLPPP, you need to put a request into the provider and there is also downtime as you will be moving the IP address under the serial interface to the multilink interface.
The provider should give you an estimate regarding on the downtime and what needs to be done on each end.
