Cisco Router 2611xm

I am looking to purchase a Cisco 2611xm router and have some questions about functionality.

I have 2 offices that will be connected with a privite t1 circuit.  A 2611 router will be on each end.

On one side we would like to use an existing ISDN line as a backup for this connection.

Does the 2611xm support this type of scenario out of the box?  Or Would I need to purchase an additional WIC or other add on to complete this kind of setup?

Would the router be able to be configured to aoutomatically roll over the the ISDN line of the private circuit fails?

Thanks for the assistance.

No it doesn't out of the box.  You would need to purchase an ISDN WIC for the router.

The following would work...

Yes the router would be able to be configured to failover to the ISDN line if your primary circuit failed.

You also need T1 WIC cards to terminate the T1's
WIC-1DSU-T1

Else, if you have external CSU/DSU, you will need a serial port WIC
WIC-1T
and a v.35 DTE cable.
