I have a client who's working on bringing 4 T1's into a building. The client then wants to lease the space in their building to small business and offer the Voice and Data. On the data side, I'm looking for recommendations on equipment to combine the 4 T1's into a single line of traffic and split the bandwidth across the network. I'd also need to be able to NAT the multiple IP's across the network. I've seen some equipment that will combine the 4 wan ports into a single LAN, but no option for the Nating the multiple IP clusters.

Thanks,
Josef

Cisco 2821 with 2x WIC-2MFT-T1 modules
Cisco IOS does NAT quite handily

I am sure Adtran or nortel provide similar equipment but the adtran is an IOS clone (why deal with the headaches) and Nortel is hard to find someone to work on (i hear they are quite difficult) I believe juniper may have a solution as well. But sticking with Cisco means the configuration is super easy and you can find support from anywhere.

I would agree, that cisco makes a good product. However so does 3com and watchguard. So besides a cisco system, does anyone else have experience with any other products doing a similar task?
