I am looking for an isdn similator in order to prepare the WAN section
of the CCNP.
But, after a lot of search, I don't really find what is the "minimum" in
order to train.
(what switch, how many ports ...) Furthermore, it seems not to be
accessible. (not cheaper at all)
All advice are welcome.

Right.  Good luck getting the farking thing to actually work.

We had one of those at the Academy I attended.  In all the years
they'd had the thing, they couldn't get it going.  Some investigation
on my part turned up that they had U ports on the Adtran, and S/T
ports on the routers.  Oops!  Best part?  The instructor had no idea
this was the case...

So, for the first lab exercise, we used routers that another student
brought in.  Worked fine.  Later, the instructor scored some U port
modules for the existing routers off ebay.  Installed them.  Went to
hook three routers up for the next lab.  Only one router had its SPIDs
accepted.  Swapped routers around, without success -- the problem did
not migrate.  Double- and triple-checked configuration on the Adtran,
and as near as I could gather, it was fine.

The Adtran unit is a fine instrument.
Looks like your instructor didn't match up....

It sure looks impressive but.... I checked prices for the chasis and
interface cards and I would say it's out of range of a home Lab
unless you are John Chambers' (or Bill Gates') son :-)
I've seen an ISDN simulator for around $500 new and a 2522 is fine
for FR. If you run a training facility, by all means.
