The only reason I say that is because my local Comcast office told me in the
past that they only have the Cisco boxes. I actually called the phone number
for my local office this afternoon to ask whether they have any older SA
boxes around and the lady told me the call center doesn't know the inventory
of the front desk, that there was nobody I could talk to that does know, and
that the only way to find out is to physically go to the location, stand in
line, and ask.
