BladeWare support for Sangoma’s analog boards is now in GA release. This adds station- and office-trunk support for Windows and Linux to BladeWare. Remember, these boards give you 2-24-ports of analog in just one PCI or PCI Express slot. Two interfaces are on each daughtercard, which is the mix-n-match granularity for FX/S and FX/O. A two-port board is just $272; an 8-port board is $652. Plus, each channel of fax requires a software license. The per-port license fee depends on your volume, but budget about $100 for each.
Support for the digital boards will be provided in Q1 by an enhanced version of the same BladeWare resource service manager (RSM) as is currently shipping. Robbed-bit, ISDN PRI, and ISDN BRI are offered. Single-, dual-, quad-, and octal-span E1/T1 boards require just one PCI or PCI Express slot in a 2-U enclosure.
The ISDN BRI board is interesting. It gives you 2-24 BRIs, for 4-48 lines, all in one slot.
