LinuxWorld: Digi Acceleport RAS

"A typical PC running Linux can be turned into a remote access server bristling with 48 modems cheaply and easily with Digi serial cards. Read Rawn Shah's review to find out if this solution is right for you."

"Digi has long been known in the ISP industry for its serial cards. In the days before densely-packed, single-box modem servers were available at affordable prices, many smaller ISPs went for these multiport cards and hooked separate analog modems to them to provide their services. The result was a host computer with a Medusa's head of analog modems sprouting from the back of the card."

"Digi is still in the business of serial cards, but now makes multiport ISDN and analog modem cards for PC servers as well. Now you can fit a pack of modems within your PC server connected directly to your PCI cards, and save yourself the trouble of snaking cables."
