This may be a little late (been slack about reading mail)  but I've used
both the cyclades black boxes and their hardware cards.  I was never
very happy with the serial appliances.  The OS was kludgy and slow and
lacked some things I wanted.  So I very easily build my own using the
cyclades cards (which are excellent).  The ones I got came in 16 port
blocks that you could join together for 128 ports per card.  Then I used
conserver (which is originally from freebsd) to manage all the serial
ports.  It worked much better than the cyclades appliances and was about
$1600 cheaper (I alraedy had a server I used for the host)
