Not defending, just curious... why not? I've been running a Pipeline 130 on
site for 18 months now, have used the same box for 64K, 128K ISDN, frame
relay, and point to point T1 over that period of time. The only time I've
ever ran into difficulty Ascend did a software upgrade for me over the wire
and that fixed it (the problem was trying to set the routing over frame
relay). I purchased this unit because it was so scaleable, and I have not
been disappointed.
