GSM/GPRS gateway with Call Manager ?

Do CISCO make a GSM/GPRS gateway / interface card ?

To make sure I am using the correct terminology, I'll explain what I want to do.

I want a gateway registered with Call Manager (in the same way my e1 equipped 2821's are) but instead of using an e1, use up to 30 mobile SIMS so I can forcecalls to mobiles through this gateway and get "mobile-to-mobile" rates rather than "land-to-mobile" rates.

In order to achieve this, do I get a 3rd party box and connect this to the e1 interface of CISCO router - and this 3rd party box emulates an e1 ? meaning the use of mobile SIMs is transparent to the CISCO router (it just sees an e1). Do CISCO make/rebrand this type of device ? Is there a WIC/interface card that achieves this with a CISCO router ? Or a specific piece of CISCO equipment for this purpose ? Does anyone have any experience/recommendations ?

Just to clarrify, this is literally for voice calls only and cost savings based on "mobile-to-mobile" rates/call allowances in an active Call Manager 4 deployment, there is no data requirement. UK based.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
