CSU/DSU for fbsd as a router

I'm not aware of any T-1 network cards for FreeBSD though there are 
cards out there that perform this function. I have a client that uses a 
product called the Interceptor which is simply a Unix server with a PCI 
CSU/DSU, T-1 card--with this box, the T-1 plugs directly into the server.

If you're not able to locate something like this (and having a seperate 
CSU and router bothers you that bad) you can go with with a router that 
has a built-in CSU.

As an example, I use a Cisco 1720 which has a built-in CSU. The result 
is I plug the T-1 into the router and the router into my FreeBSD firewall.
