Unfortunately the only real way you will be able to
tell, for any given
environment, is try it and see in a small scale, controlled trail. No
vendor can provide you with the proverbial rock-solid gaurantee that a
wildly hetreogenous populution of clients from many different
manufacturers, firmware versions, etc will respond well to a given
At my previous employer, we did that, with 5200 and Microcom v.34 (K56Flex
not released by then.) All went well with 1 PRI from Clear dms100 and 1
fully equipped 5200. Ran perfectly.
Put 3 x 5200's maxed out with Microcom 56K modems (but limited to v.34) and
we went through 14 months of bug fixes and reloads and memory leaks and all
sorts of shit. At one stage, the Telco switch was signalling the end of a
call, and the NAS was ignoring it as it hadn't received a PPP or LAPM
disconnect notice. This was of course fixed, memory leaks never were.
Needless to say, the 5300's were actually much better when we trialled
them, even with MICA.
The point? I no no longer trust the accuracy of Pilot's. The pilot of 5200
went perfectly, the implementation was hell.
