What a software, I've started with it when I was dealing with common analogic modems, in that period I've had some sort of application dealing with users in order to control house and few appliances. Now I'm using it heavily to collect voicemail, data and to integrate it with PBX and routers. Never tried Digium cards but the software itself is really complete, it takes some time to configure everything properly but when you've done you've an absolute stable and scalable system. I'm now evolving to HA cluster availability.
