Short Take: Ascend has all-in-one switches

Ascend Communications announced two new switches that integrate a remote access server, digital modems, and a router in one chassis. The MAX 4048 and 4060 are targeted at small to mid-sized Internet Service Providers (ISP) who do not need a dedicated box for each purpose. The box includes Ascend's Series56 digital modems and supports 48 and 60 access channels, respectively. The 4048 is available now for $26,400. The 4060 is also available immediately with a dependent pricing model.
