Jared, sorry I forgot about out-of-band touch tones and should of specified better, the client was looking to use a modem like most guessed.
I suggested using a cellular option since POTS wasn't available, as most gear usually has that as an option, and it looks like US Robotics makes a serial connection modem at that.
I do remember though something about a modem over VoIP protocol being developed, something like Jay was saying about Faxing over VoIP, but I guess it never took off. My guess being relying on the same line as an internet connection would be about that smart anyways.

It would be easier to use the comcast internet connection with some sort of IPsec tunnel for OOB. It’s cheap and mostly reliable.
