Buying modems for OOB management is getting harder and harder.

The only solution I found was: http://www.industrial-grade-modem.com/   
- they work out at less than $700 (or at least they do for me).   
They're suitable for use in Australia and seem to work reliably.

Our experience is that if you're doing OOB, then it's the method of  
last resort before driving/flying to the equipment so spending a bit  
extra is worth while.   Ditto for power equipment.
