FXO Gateway vs Internal Digium Card


I am about to setup our Asterisk so that it can accept POTS lines. However I am not sure if I should get an inernal FXO Digium card or an external gateway like the GXW-4104.

What are the pros/cons of each? Which is easiest to setup?

We will be in a business enviroment and need something reliable aswell.


One definite advantage of using a host based card (Digium or not) would be architectural simplicity. But a lot depend on your specific business application and requirements (in addition to accepting POTS lines).
