Ethernet Layer 2 point to point and T1

I currently have T1's connecting our clinics to us and I use a Paradyne T1/Ethernet converter to get them on our network so we are all on the same subnet. So they have a gray T1 box at each clinic with a corresponding gray box here that completes the point to point T1 with the converts outside of those. I believe this is a Layer 2 connection at the T1 level?

If a company is offering a Layer 2 Ethernet connection at 10 megs, would this be the same solution that I have now and could I keep them on our same subnet by just plugging them into our core switch here like I do now with the Ethernet/T1 converters?

If they are offering you a L2 ethernet solution you would be bypassing those T1/Eth converters and going right onto your router or switch at each site. If it is a L2 solution then you could keep your present subnet set up.
