I think the basic wireline signalling is isdn bri for that, but with  
non-standard protocols.

ie the channel bank would talk to the ksu/pbx, but nothing but a  
reverse of the same hardware would understand anything on the other  
end of the t1.

ps - this sort of channel bank would be pricey at best, rediculous  
probably in reality.

I would try other solutions before even attempting this sort of thing  
since the odds of success are probably not too high.
