How are you aggregating WAN customers these days?

We used that topology, with an Adtran MX 2800 19" rack version.  We
would take our channelize DS-3 from the Telco and the Cisco PA-MC2T3
cards and in turn wire those to a DSX-1 panel.  We then did 1 to 1 DS1
X-connects on the panel.  That was starting to get too much of a pain as
services grew, so we went with a DACS and that took care of having to do
all that DSX-1 wiring.  Ugh.
