It is true that you can only have 2 PRI/T1 connections per PM3 chassis, but
you can put several PM3 Chassis together in a rack and have them work
effectively as one "unit". This even allows MultilinkPPP connections that
span chassis.

I don't know what sort of "scalablity" you are looking for, but it would
seem that the PM3's can handle it.
