The Livingston products are not antiquated; they are in fact very
up to date and selling like hotcakes, though they are annoyingly
flawed from a CIDR viewpoint.  In particular, the IRX router is
about half the price of a Cisco 2500 most of the time, and the
Portmaster dialup servers are worlds more attractive than any
non-rackmount integrated alternatives, under $100 a port.
It would be fair to say that Livingston has been a reasonably
large part of the success of small and midsized ISPs recently.

All the more important for them to get into CIDRizing their
software, but...
