I need to get one to play with. I see them better for handling end-node
terminations, and according to the cisco guys I've talked to, the ASR
has and will continue to have more subscriber management functionality
than traditional IOS.
For t1, I either run a mux(telco side) into a CT3(ISP side) on a 7200
(there's equiv SPAs), or if it hits one of my larger pops, I drop it
into a mux(telco side) which terminates with all of my OC3 and smaller
circuits into a CHOC48(telco/ISP crossconnect link).
Given that most of these circuits are being long hauled anyways, this
just made the best sense to us. It also (even though telco/ISP are
related in this case) assisted in management domains.
