I've known about this for six months, but I was ordered not to tell a soul :)

I can see this being good for supporting analog equipment (legacy non-ip phones), however - if I have 24 good ole POTS lines in, I think i'll go to a DS1 arrangement. Anyways, pretty cool. Lets it give the end user/buyer more options.

These things would be excellent for wiring up apartments and such for VoIP. Like, they already have all the copper put in, so you could just go down to the blocks in the basement and plug in your asterisk system down there, with a couple of these cards, and that saves having to wire the entire apartment with RJ45, or having to use a rack of ATA's.

The picture below is from their site on this page. Couldn't find a price anywhere online for it though.

Yikes, full-length PCI? It'd be nice if they could get this thing a little smaller.

According to Mark Spencer, price will be "sub-$2000"

This is what I consider the "last mile" with Asterisk. I've been trying to get the per port price down far enough to compete with other systems like Panasonic and it's still not there. If sub-$2000 really means $1999 then I'm better off getting a T1 card for $500 and a channel bank for $200. Or a quad T1 card for $1500, a channel bank for $200, and having room to expand with a single PCI card.

I'm no longer excited about this. :(

Let me see if I can engage in a little bit of market manipulation tonight, since Mark is in town ;)
