The T6000 is now the M6. The SBCs for the M6 are designed specifically
as an application layer gateway (ALG) for the M6. They used to be
called "voice firewalls" until someone decided they needed to be
called SBCs (opinion only!). They are not general purpose SBCs.
They're fine for the ALG work for which they were designed, and are
the key to being able to scale the platform -- but I wouldn't really
lump them in with other SBCs.
