Connecting an Annex office

By frostyptr ·
How would i connect an annex office located 1/2 block away using a T1 line. Our main building has T1 using a Cisco 1601 router.

I know that I will need additional equipment, i just don't know what.

Thank you in advance.

I'm assuming that the T1 at your main office is an Internet T1. If so, then just get another 1601 with a CSU/DSU card or match the external CSU/DSU that you have at your main office.

With two Internet T1s you can easily create a GRE or IPSEC tunnel between your two sites.

If you have an existing point-to-point T1 at your main office and you'll be getting another to your annex, then you'll need a combination of the CSU/DSU card and another external CSU/DSU for the Sync serial port on the main router.
