[VoiceOps] Cisco SBC - feedback ?

Cisco told us it began life as the IP-IP Gateway product. It was  
originally added to provide a public SIP / RFC2833 interface to older  
Cisco Call Manager systems.

But they've said the product has matured a lot since then. I haven't  
personally seen any Service Providers go into operation using it,  
while I've seen dozens using Acme Packet, Covergence and Ditech  
Peerpoint (RIP).

Any SBC entrant would have tons of work to catch up.  If a new SP  
buildout is rich in time and patience, they should definitely help the  
newer vendors mature their products by providing real world load,  
feature requests, and defect reports.
