PA-MC-T3 Load Balancing /Bonding

I have a cisco 7206VXR with an NPE 400/ and a PA-MC-T3 (not the EC module.).

The service provider essentially hands off a DS3, and terminates the T1's at the remote ends.

Is there anyway to do any kind of load balancing or bonding of multiple T1's on the DS3? From what I can see the PA-MC-T3-EC is required to do MLPPP, MLFR, etc, but is there any other solution? I am trying to work with what I have and don't have access to the PA-MC-T3-EC. Of the 28 T1's 20 are all single T1's to different locations. There is one site that I needed at least two T1's worth of bandwidth. At the other end of the circuit I have 2811's with 2 dual vwic modules.

Hi, generally speaking, the default of CEF load balancing is good enough. The alternative is MLPPP that gives you some advantages (single session speed and equal circuit utilization) at the cost of some bandwidth and performance.
