Sort of, it is an ISDN T1 commonly reffered to as a PRI.  The use is totally
different however.  With these you can add/remove channels on the fly up to the
limits defined in the hardware and the number available (whichever is less!). 
You can connect from BRIs to PRIs but are limited to the two channels of the BRI
(although you can gang those together too if you have the right hardware).
