Hey.. I was not dis'ing BellSouth (for a change), it was just funny
that they did not know they were being used. Yes, I know BS is a 
very big company, I have even done a few sub-contract jobs for 
them and have friends at BS. It's a bit like the Catholic Church:
it's a wonder something that big works so well, let alone at all
(that was a complement).

But after reviewing all of the wonderful techno-jargon going around, 
I have come to the conclusion that the same thing applies towards
2 wire/4wire T1's as applied to many technowonders we work with. 

My summary:

  "Depending upon the LEC, Engineer for that circuit, equipment
  used, and evaluation of facilities available for each circuit,
  and available vendors hardware (PairGain/ADC...) at that moment,
  as well as other variables, there exists a plethoria of options
  for providing what various routers see as a standard ESF/B8ZS T1 at
  their interface. What matters is they see it and it works."
