And back in my day we were excited when we deployed the USR (eventually 3Com) Total Control access servers.

Thanks,

Joe

Back in the day (geesh I feel old just saying that), I deployed a lot of PM3’s …. Then we moved to Ascend TNT Max stuff 
- that was very exciting back then!

PM3's were pretty solid. PM4's, not so much. They were often 
problematic requiring periodic reboots of the entire chassis to keep 
them sane even right up through the last firmware release until Lucent 
killed them off in favor of their newly acquired Ascend equipment. The 
team that designed them were good guys. We used to work directly with 
them on issues and get early access to beta releases of new firmware 
for the PM's, including new cutting edge protocols such as K56Flex and 
later V.90. :)

The PMs were fantastic.

PM3's were pretty good as well. 2 PRIs or T1s.. 48 56k digital modems, 
+ ISDN support.. :)

I still have a soft spot for the Portmasters :-). We had rows of 
PM2's with US robotics 33.6K sportster modems attached on 8mm tape racks.
Back when a town of 40K people could all connect through 2XT1's and 
everyone was happy.
