I remember those...

I don't want it, but it was a useful piece of kit at the time. Nortel
end-of-lifed all of them.

IIRC, that model was intended for remote offices that ran only IP,
other models also handled other protocols (IPX, appletalk, decnet,
others). They called it routing but it bridged onto the WAN ports. We
controlled it with SNMP and it could do things like dial-on-demand and
had limited filtering and prioritization.
