I think the only one under support may be the Cisco AS series (AS5800 only
now?):

The other platform I knew besides the TNT was the Nortel CVX but it is EOL
also.

I'm told by our Alcatel rep that the APX 8000 is no longer supported and
that we can no longer get hardware support because they "don't have any
spare parts".

I share a certain amount of love for this platform dating back to Ascend,
but what am I to do now? Obviously no one is making large investments in
their dial platform, but are there any other viable alternatives out there
that are actually supported?
