I would also recommend to look at the "Incarda" router card, it's about the
same price (if I am not mistaken) as Sangoma. The reason why I prefer to use
it is because it's completely independent router with hardware firewalls and
other Ip filters, and all the routing compatibilities are already in the card
so you don't have to waste computer resources on building firewalls and
It is managed by telnet (the only thing that card takes
from the computer is power, it is not related to the software that runs
on the computer) or menu based dos program.
The site is http://www.sourcecom.com/
There are also external models (same card just in small box and power
supply) which CSU/DSU support. (this product family is called "InRoute")
