	What you are speaking of is most likely what juniper
calls CCC.  L2 transport over their network.  Not too dificult to set up
but as usual the complications come in the realm of redundancy and
network reconvergence.

	I'd pay close attention to the SLA offered, but it
is probally similar to what is seen in a TDM network if they
employ mpls fast reroute .. and if you're doing IP
over this circuit, you will probally be less likely to notice any
