that's quite true but it can be done. we managed to set up an as5300
a week with hardly any cisco ios knowledge.
the only real problem with the cisco is, that we didn't find a way to
use "Simultaneous Use" attribute for isdn calls. (analog calls are
fine, but the isdn calls are getting a portnumber assigned, that cannot
queried by snmp - but that 's off topic)

that depends on what you are looking for. we took a
look at Lucent Max TnT, Ericsson Tigris and Cisco AS5300
(at the end it was not only a matter of functionality
and price but also a political decision)
