I bought two Maxxwaves with the Core2 Duo processor and it's an Axiomtek 
NA-822 inside. It's a nifty platform, I'm probably going to put BIRD on 
it and make some BGP RRs one of these fine days. I'm too OCD to suffer a 
"server" in the routing/switching bays as the only thing with ports on 
the back.

I wouldn't imagine trying to route 10 gig with it though, or sharing any 
functions (like VOIP) on it.
