we have a  new connection to an external client
a new T1 router has been delivered to our premisses
the router is than connected to a switch (the above was done by a third company)

we now need to connect this connection to our network, we only have 1 core switch)
what is the best way to connect this to our network, and whatt info do we need from this vendor as they didnt supply any info on this switch that connects to the t1 router?

Find out what IP range they used on that connection to the switch.

Then you need a router or layer 3 switch to add routes to the remote network, and connect that to the switch.

What type of router do you have? What type of switches do you have?

Can you support another WAN interface?

Their T1 router should be the only router you need for this and just connect your switch to their switch. You will need the IP address of their router's ethernet interface to be able to route to it to get to the remote site's network.
