Asterisk Data Link

I’m using a Sangoma A101 card with wanpipe 3.2.4, runninng on Asterisk 1.2.26.
I want to know if it is possble to use ASterisk for a Data connection with this card; I’ll try to explain it better.
I need to test if some remote ISDN channels configured as data channels are UP or Down, so I’ve configured my Asterisk server to generate automatic calls and give me a report on the status of this lines.
My question is, how I have to configure the zapata.conf for a data connection?
Thanks in advance,
