If a local loop provider were to offer me good loop cost for an area, and I wanted to provide T1 services to my customers, what type of hardware would I need? This is assuming that the local loop carrier hands me a T3 as my main link to their network, and then all my T1s around town are carried to my datacenter over the T3. Then once at my datacenter the traffic would go to the internet.
What equipment would be capable of doing something like this (offering T1s)? Is there anything that does not cost an arm and a leg?
I'm assuming you're talking about a channelized offering, and not a local frame-relay or ATM cloud? Do you want to break them down into individual physical T1s again at the DC using an M13 mux, or are you looking to keep everything on DS3 transport into the DC and logically break out the channels on some network widget?

I am not sure, like say if I was to get someone like transport provider, that gave me a T3 link to their network back to my datacenter, and then any T1 line was routed by the provider back to my t3, where it was seperated at my datacenter into seperate t1s.
