[Spce-user] routers Vs SBC

The EdgeMarc cost around $500 for 10 concurrent calls, a built in DSL modem ( which MicroTic does not have, as far as I can remember) and also Ethernet WAN and USB for wireless modems (MicroTik does have those). In addition it has WiFi.
My understanding is that it automatically gives priority for VoIP traffic, and it can fail over automatically between al three WAN interfaces.
You can find DSL only model (200W) for $100 or less on eBay.

Did you ever experience an automatic fail over on the WAN interface? How did it work?

Also, you mentioned using Asterisk - do you use it on the customer premises and in turn connect it to a hosted SPCE?

Actually, I just found some on VoIP Supply. Of course, they are priced awkwardly enough where if they are useful, then they're worth it, but if not, then I feel like a fool. It will be kinda interesting with my environment as everything I have is run in a VMWare cluster, so I'd have one plugged into each of my switches for both LAN and WAN.

SIP isn't an overly chatty protocol, so a given IP shouldn't have say more than 100 packets per second from a valid client, but would from someone trying to break in.
