No, DS3 multilink is not supported, even if configurable.

Hi Ahmad,

Looks like from your description requirements  you are looking to increasing bandwidth?   ethernet handoffs  are becomming very popular  nowdays ,  even if you could  bandle  two DS3s you also be doubling the cost  versus using for exanple 100MB ethernet hadnoff that will probably cost you half or less than half  of  having two DS3s .      

Ask your   current  circuit  provider about metro-ethernet  for increasing  bandwidth solution.

Regards
