I wonder how well this works over T1's. We have 5 offices that this would work great for, and would be far, far less than the $10k/site we paid for LifeSize video conference systems (excellent, by the way) at the last place I worked.

If you have a real T-1 you're probably still better off with a tandberg. They work fine over ISDN, even.

I'm surprised anyone is still using (only) T1s; business cable is a much better deal.

Can't get cable in many locations, and cable often isn't as reliable.

I remember trying to replace a T1 with Comcast Business Cable. It was faster in the office, but variable latency, dropped packets, less usable remote access (just ssh and scp) and more frequent maintenance outages killed it.

IIRC, SDSL turned out to be the better answer (and we really, really wanted to try FiOS, but they didn't support our building).

Has anyone tried some kind of bonding between the T1 and cable? A reliable but slow connection and a fast but variable connection seem like they could be much cheaper than a fast and reliable connection.
