We're still using USR Robotics/3com TotalControls and were able to get some spare parts from our statewide telecom partner when they shut down their stuff.  Most common problem we see now are fan failures, but we just cannabilize existing the fans out of a fan tray.  The volume of calls are so low that there are no hours that no one is dialed in, and at most we see two people connected at one time.

Does anyone have any suggestions on equipment for our ISP that is still
supporting dial up customers?

At the moment we are running 3Com Total Control 1000's but are running out
of spare parts as we have failures.  Given that this gear is so old trying
to source spare parts is proving to be difficult.

We do have access to an Cisco AS5200 but are looking for maybe a SIP based
solution that could possibly run on our VM farm?  Has anyone heard of
anything like that or does it even exist?

What kind of gear are you running if you still are supporting dial up

Thanks in advance
