    • Hello all!
      We have been trying to talk to the local carriers here into giving us 
      channelized service and it seems that no one knows what it really is.
      The closest we got is with this carrier who suggests that we buy a MUX feeder
      from them. They will provide an E1 to us and 64K slices to our clients. But
      then we still have to buy a 30 port router because the E1 terminates on the MUX
      feeder and spits out 64K ports. =BP. It is actually like putting up our own
      local telephone exchange and linking it up to them.
      Do I understand it correctly that what I really need is just a raw (undemuxed)
      E1 to the nearest telco exchange and plug it in to a channelized E1 interface
      on a router like a Cisco 3640?
      Is there a difference on my end if my channelized E1 will terminate as 64k 
      leased lines or on analog phone lines?
      What is the standard protocol for channelized service? If we wish to get a 
      channelized service and yet avoid the overhead of a MUX feeder, we need to walk
      up to them and say something like "Hey! I need a channelized leased line. Here
      is my <brand name> router. It talks ________." So what do I put on the blank?
      Can some of you guys spare me some time and share your experiences on this type
      of service?
      Thanks in advance.
