Can I use gigabit ethernet on 2951 ISR for MPLS connection?

Purchased and configured 2951 router based on Telco specs that required T3/DS3 card with coax connection for MPLS.   When telco showed up to install DS3 they handed me a UTP copper connection....  Can I use one of the Gigabit ethernet connections on the 2951 as my MPLS interface into the provider's cloud?


Thanks,


Rick

Unfortunately no you can not use a Gigabit Ethernet if the telco interface is T3/DS3. The copper connection may have the same form factor but the protocols in use are significantly different between Ethernet and T3/DS3.
