Give it a try. Pacific Bell has upgraded the Bay Area NAP to Stratacom BPX
ATM switches and the new PacBell LA NAP will also be a BPX switch. These
switches have sufficient buffer size to manage OC-3 connections.

Check out our NAP stats page http://www.PacBell.COM/Products/NAP/Stats/ to
see how much aggregate traffic is already flowing through the Bay Area NAP.
Still some headroom left and no cell loss!
