The ISP I consult to uses an outsource dial service (don't remember 
which one).  They require us to maintain a RADIUS server accessible from 
the public internet, to validate callers and handle options and 
restrictions.  You probably have a RADIUS server already, but you may 
need to make minor (but tedious) modifications.

Factor that into your planning.
