Selecting a router to terminate a T3 Circuit?

We have a new T3 circuit to terminate.


Will a 2811 router, T3 module included, handle the job? I'd like to save the cost difference of a 3825 router.

It would depend on whether it is a full T3 or partial T3. I believe that a 2811 would not support a full T3. If it were a partial T3 and with not a lot of services configured the 2811 might do, but I believe that it would be marginal.
