Connecting CUCM home lab to PSTN

Hi,


I have CUCM 7.x running under VMWare in my home lab. I am looking for advice on connecting it to the PSTN as cheaply as I can.


I have one analog telephone line which is also used to deliver broadband via ADSL.


My broadband router is a fairly ancient NetGear unit (so old it only supports 802.11b) which I would be willing to replace if an alternative router could act as a SIP gateway (I do not know of any that can do this) but do not want to spend more than $200.


I think my options are:


  1. Some sort of broadband router that can act as a SIP gateway.
  2. An Ethernet to FXO gateway.
  3. Run an Asterix box as a gateway between CUCM and a SIP trunk.


Any suggestions for hardware etc. for the above options (or others not listed) would be most welcome.
