Connecting 2 Buildings over T1

Hi, I am designing a Wan for 2 Remote Building Using a Point-to-Point T1. I am thinking of using two 2500's series to keep them at a low cost. The question is " What Cisco 2500 Series Router will help me to connect to the T1? Also What Specific T1 Module do I need? do I need a CSU/DSU? Feel free to recommend any additional info.

Thank You.

Re: Connecting 2 Buildings over T1

The 2500 has reached its end of life - so support is limited.

Replacement is the 2600 series

The T1 card

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps3129/ps4160/index.html

has inbuilt CSU/DSU.

If you stick with 2500 series, then the secondhand market should provide.

Re: Connecting 2 Buildings over T1

Hello,

you would need a 2524 or a 2525. As posted, these are end-of-sale models. AFAIK, the 2524 and 2525 are available with a built in CSU/DSU card.

Regards,

GP
