Q

Leased line backups

I have two-leased lines connecting two different sites to my central site. I have one ISDN as backup for these two leased lines. Should both leased fail at the same time how can I configure the ISDN to dial both the locations at the same time? I am using Cisco routers on all the locations.
I doubt if that would be possible because you have only one D channel for both the BRI channels. I have come across many configurations where you can use same ISDN link to be used as backup for more than one leased lines but not simultaneously.
