Actually for low volume local users the dial up ain't bad. We used to have a 5494 at the other end of town. Left the dial up going all day. Local phone company figured more and more modem users were doing this. They counterattacked and talked about having a length of call charge or some ridiculous thing. An army of little old ladies counterattacked and said they are on the phone for hours to people and how dare they punish poor old shut-ins. We won.

I suspect you are looking at a remote controller and a telephone line for those folks....(5394-5494) Since you work for the telephone company, a dedicated line would be the way to go.....(4 wire) but lower volume users could be put on a cheap dial line and run just fine at 33.6 kbps...
