Carry mulitple vlans over 1 statically assigned vlan?

I am getting a tls setup from our local fibre provider. They basically setup a switch with a statically assigned vlan on each end.  I would like to carry voice, data & production vlans to my other office over this connection separately. Is this at all possible with the use of specific equipment? Obviously if i setup a trunk the other vlans wont be accepted.

Depends on the provider. If they support trunks then you're good to go. If they don't...  :-)

How would they do this? I'm just curious how they could accomplish allowing customer trunks?

There's a couple of ways to allow the customer to have trunks between their sites. One way is called Q-in-Q trunking.  But this is a provider issue. As far as the customer is concerned, it's either supported or not.

Ok. We are a new isp so if we wanted to offer this to customer sites I would need cisco equipment capable of q in q trunking then is what your telling me. Our provider is just providing a black fibre connection to our datacenter, but really I was curious for personal as well

Yes. If you were a provider and if you wanted to carry customer VLANs via 802.1q frames, Q-in-Q trunking is a way to accomplish that.
