56k requires digital lines (T1 or PRI) coming into your
facility. You cannot attach standard 56k modems to
the PM2e using analog lines and provide anything above
33.6. Microcomm offers the ISPorte which will have
56k modems available in August. They are offering
a full trade in on the 33.6 modems it currently ships with.
The ISPorte uses 1 or 2 incoming T1s and splits them in
to 24 incoming lines each. You do end up with some
Analog lines left over as it support 64 ports right now.

Another option is the Multi-Tech Commplete Unit which
has the NAS built in and supports up to 96 ports. 56k is
scheduled for this unit any day now. They are also planning
on increasing the port total to 192 in the same chassis by
the end of the summer. This unit is bassically a POP in a
Box at it also supports a static T1.
