I am setting up an installation for a small business that needs a couple of analog phones and lines. I originally was going to use a standard analog card, but in my testing there is a lot of echo on the lines, so I am going to use hardware EC. When I went to purchase a A200 with EC, the distributor offered me a Vega 50 for the same price. I know this product is recently been discontinued but I do like a number of the features and the fact that it is detached from the server hardware. I have done a few installations with analog cards, but never one with an analog gateway.
My question is, should I stick with the analog card or is the Vega 50 a viable alternative? This is a customer that is very cost sensitive (aren’t they all) and with only about 12 total users I suspect either product will work well.
