Urgent Help Needed with ISDN Router!!!!!!!

HI guys, need some urgent advice..

Have a Cisco 3600 which has an ISDN BRI Card installed, also have a 1701 (Think) with an ISDN Bri card. As I understand it now if I have a DR they both kick in and give me 128k connection (2x ISDN2e which is what I have here in the UK)

Although thinking about it the show int bri1/1 shows be the BW = 64K

What I need to do is boost the speed, was thinking of getting more ISDN channels from BT, what kit do I need? Will the Cisco 3600 be able to handle more ISDN traffic or do I need another card? Same for the Cisco 1701 what card is needed for that or do I need to replace it with a better model

Urgent help needed guys so any help would be great...




Re: Urgent Help Needed with ISDN Router!!!!!!!

Hi Rob,

According to the ISDN bandwidth, you have two B channels with 64 kbps each (max. bandwidth 128 kbps).

You can only control the B channels, by default use the First B channel and according to the following command you can inforce the router to use the first B channel and after it is used, use the second B channel.

dialer load-threshold 255 either

From the previous command, after the first B channel overloaded the router will use the second B channel (max 255), and it is triggered from either in or out traffic (either).

I hope this is helpful!

plz. rate if it does! and update me if you have more questions.
