Yes. With Telstra, it's an EXTRAORDINARLY big deal. You still have to
use specific hardware, and SS7 signaling over ISDN

Note: This may be out of date, but I was previously told I *had* to
use a Dialogic gateway, and buy a craptonne of ISDN from them.before
the'd even think about it. I may be slandering them, and if I am
incorrect, please accept my apologies, and BTW Hey, Telstra, I want
500 channels of interconnect over SIP please 8)
