That is about right, if Kentrox has not further developed this box since I
last worked on the PacBell NAP project. If you need full rate DS-3 ATM,
gulp hard and go for the cisco AIP interface.

You might want to send a note to ca-nap at and ask current NAP
members if they have an old Kentrox ADSU lying around after a cisco AIP
upgrade. You can start with that and upgrade later if you need to.
