Asterisk as a "smart" channel bank?

Has anyone built an Asterisk server to perform as a channel bank?

  1. Build an asterisk server with one analog board and one digital board; create a dialplan to route incoming calls from the analog board to the T1 board.

  2. The T1 board on the Asterisk server could be cross-connected to multiple machines; our scenario would be to have servers attached where our telephony applications would be developed and tested.

Thank you for your help.
