You DO NOT want to use a Cisco 3600 if you will be upgrading to a T3 any time
soon. The 3600 series routers do not support HSSI interfaces (High Speed Serial
Interface capable of T3). To support HSSI, you will need to purchase at least a
Cisco 4500M with IP only IOS software (rec V11.2.X or higher).

Call me if you are interested in pricing. We are tier 1 with Cisco.
