I can't say we've tried ISDN, but typically we've found PSTN is a basic 
service that tends to work and is fairly easy to get as well as being 
cost effective.  Debugging it requires a basic phone and an ear.  
Although I can see ISDN has the added advantage of knowing if it's still 
there (ie you can see layer1/2 up etc).  

Cisco do make an analogue modem WIC which can be handy as a Cisco 2xxx 
series with a 16 port async module with such a WIC card is a handy thing 
indeed to manage a remote POP.
