Project Description

I have a Cisco 1841 router which I was using for ADSL bonding of 2 dsl lines to my home. The telco was using the traditional ATM based access on its DSLAM. They recently switched to a Calix C7 ethernet DSLAM. From Cisco: " There is no unique mapping between the subscriber Line-ID tag and the
interface in an Ethernet broadband access network, as there is in an ATM-based broadband network, where the ATM VC is associated to a subscriber line."

So the config files on my router, and quite likely, the config on my ISP are not going to work as they depend on multilink ppp on atm VC's.

My ISP is a smaller provider, they are willing to work with me however they do not have the time to spend on this project. I am in contact with an engineer from the telco, he is the one who can access the C7 if any config is needed there, so long as other customers are not adversely affected. I am familiar with IOS configuration on my router however I do not have the expertise to make this work.

So, if you want to work with me you need to be fluent with Cisco IOS ([url removed, login to view]), the Calix C7 and how to implement the remote ID tag processing solution as described in the Cisco docs attached here. You will need to write a config file for the bonding at the ISP end on their routers, a config file for my router, and if some change is needed on the Calix, a step by step detail which I can provide to the telco engineer. I can provide a RADIUS server if an external one is needed. The ISP is providing me a /29 block of (static) IP addresses.

This project is for my personal use, this is not for a corporation or large company. We live in a rural area where the dsl service is fair, at best.

When you reply I need your qualifications, have you done this before, and what your time estimate is to complete. I reserve the right to re-bid as a fixed price project.

Please review the attached docs for some preliminary info.
