Can you run MPLS int. and ATM int. on same 3845?

Unanswered Question
Feb 10th, 2010

I have a 3845 router which has two separate DS-3 network modules installed. I want to configure one module for our ATM network and the other for a separate MPLS network. The ATM DS-3 is 20mb frac, while the MPLS will be a 40mb frac. My question, is this possible and does anyone know of any documentation that might come in helpful when doing so? Any ideas are appreciated.

I have this problem too.

A 3845 is targeted for a single DS3 circuit.

Multiple DS3 circuits should be run on a 7200, next step up..

That's what kills me about these datasheets - different business units - different information.

My information came from internal document but this document is pretty much identical from what I have:

Table 2.

I also looked in the 3800 series datasheet and the only information from T3/DS3:

"Built for performance, these routers deliver multiple concurrent services up to wire-speed T3/E3 rates."

Never said multiple T3s.

The router comparison says the same thing:

Up to the original poster to run it as he wishes..

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately, I can't get the $$ for a 7200, and we currently have a 3845 in production. Any kind of config guides/examples would be great.
