Hi Drew,

We have several customer we do this with using DS3s. On our end we use
an Adtran 830 DACS (pretty inexpensive).

We use the T3SU at the customers end with various cards (depending on
how much voice they want. We break out the voice channels and then run a
HSSI connection to a router as a fractional DS3.

In our case, we originate the dialtone at our facility with PRIs. then
pipe then to the different customer locations that terminate via DS3s
and CT3s at our facility, but you could easily do it with a
point-to-pint DS3 and some Adtran equipment.

I would suggest giving Adtran a call as they have a great pre-sales
engineering department. And no I don't work for Adtran :-)

Hope this helps.
