Ronnie : I don't know why did you left 3Com out of this, but I've probed all
of those you mention and I Definitely sit the 3Com equipment over the top of
all. In all the areas that you are considering.
If you want something more technical, please contact me or be a little more

Best Regards.

Subject: [NTISP] NAS

Please.. no flames for posting this to all 3 list... I just want to reach
the largest audience possible.

I DO NOT want responses from Sales agents, dealers, distributors!!!!!!!!!!

I would like to get a response from anyone with the following NASes or
anyone that has had experience with them. I would like to know your Good,
Bad, and Ugly!!!

I presently have have one POP with 18 PRIs and several others with 3-5 PRIs

My choices in the order that I have been thinking are:

Cisco 5300 - for the smaller POPs

Cisco 5800 - for the larger POP

MAX TNT - either POP

Basic areas or info needed are:

Ease of initial setup.

Ease of troubleshooting.

Ease of management.

Ease of setup with Radius authentication.

SNMP experiences.

Upgrade experiences.

Percentage of client connect failures.

Client modem problems with NAS.
