I think there were some significant issues with the redback of the
time, but ... near as I recall a pile-o-cash was put forth on both
19262 and 701 to do 'upgrades for CALEA' (at least on 701 those
upgrades drove other features as well). In 701-land that ended up as
'lots more E3+ linecards!', in 19262 land that ended up being: "ERX
for everyone!"

(again, there could have been other drivers, but one major one was
indeed 'calea monster!' - one wonders if they've ever even had a calea
request to date...)
