Hello everyone,

this is a rather vague qusetion so far but I hope it will eventually become a more specific one. Here's my situation.

I'm supposed to set up a 7206 VXR router as a gateway between some ethernet traffic I'm about to receive from a provider and 5 E1 circuits from another provider. However, I have no experience whatsoever with voice lines etc. I've worked with cisco routers for a long time, I've never configured something similar though.
I have an E1 module already installed on the router, I configured the E1 controllers as unframed, but that's all I've actually done. Setting up the internet connectivity, ACLs etc is easy, what I need to know is HOW I will converd the ethernet traffic to TDM.

So, could someone fill me in on things I should know beforehand and/or post an example configuration?
