Router's with atm blades back to back?

Is it possible to put to Router's 36XX with ATM Network modules back to back. If not what would be the best way to use a DS3

No, it's not possible without an ATM switch of some sort in between.

A HSSI module would require you to use a HSSI null modem cable, but at least you'd be able to use the DS3. That's about the only solution I can think of. Sorry it's not better news.

You can run ATM DS-3 modules back-to-back.

I have it running on a couple of test routers.

The limitation with back-to-back is that no SVC connectivity is possible, only PVC. This prohibits LANE from being used without a switch. Also, since ILMI can't be run, you should run a dynamic routing protocol on the link.

If you are interested, I can post the configs.

Regards;

Doug
