A Dialed Number trumps ANY bearer capability's incoming request? This
sounds broken to me since there is no way to *sense* whether the caller
is attempting 64kbps. Surely you mean "Dialed number trumps voice bearer
capability and assumes 56kbps data when the number is assigned to
'Ethernet'", right? Can an Ascend be configured for incoming 64kbps CSD
data callers only, in order to refuse 56kbps CSD and all voice callers,
so that a given dialin number can be reserved for *premium* 64kbps
callers? Maybe not, so I say the Ascend is broken, because it won't
support 64kbps DOV and 64kbps-only CSD dialin numbers. I would consider
it to be broken, too, if CSD callers dialing the Dialed Numbers assigned
to Ascend analog modems get answered by modems, or does the bearer
capability request trump Dialed Number in this case?

Can't do 64kbps DOV. Wonder if anyone can do 64kbps-only CSD?

I guess you must be the judge and jury as to what is broken with respect
to US ISDN DOV? Why you consider 56kbps DOV to be mandatory and 64kbps
DOV to be misguided is beyond me.
