I see that a lot of people on this forum use the Patton Smartnode devices to interface Asterisk with ISDN and existing PBX's.
But what about the AVM 5188?
Can it be integrated nicely with Asterisk as well?
That box has 8 BRI interfaces (4 NT, 4 TE), right?
And costs only 350 euro !!
In contrast, a Patton SN4638 for example has only 5 BRI ports, and costs A LOT more!
So, what are the main differences, advantages and disadvantages of both solutions?
P.S. Feel free to answer in German.
