The current 'still works, has features, etc' box is as5400xm, and is terming most of a full ct3 per chassis. Any-Service Any-Port, t.37 on/off ramping, and v.34/v.92 works quite well, as do the nifty high-touch features (mppc, stac, mlppp-lfi, hqos, etc), thanks to the npe-g1-worth of CPU in the box. We use this for v.110/120 isdn and switched-56 (yes, it still exists) calls, tdm-tdm ISDN switching, and a few pstn OOB channels.
