Well, of course it all depends how much other traffic you're trying to get
through simultaneously.  Your T1 will carry ~170 simultaneous voice
streams with no conflict, but you have to realize that they'll stomp on
your simultaneous TCP data traffic.  But you don't need to protect the
_voice_...

Look, just do it, and you'll see that there aren't any problems in this
area.
