You might want to post this over to cisco-nsp because there are lots of
options depending upon your configuration.  If you're looking at port
density it seems to me you would want your router/switch to have the biggest
mux ports possible.  So, you could look at OC-3 or even higher in the router
platforms.  You can get up to an OC-12 channelized, but it all depends upon
your configuration.

Mike
