BBB dial up phone capability

My project requires the BBB to dial a phone number over an old fashioned telephone line and play a wav file. I haven’t seen anything that will allow me to do that… is there a modem available to use?

how about using asterisk and a usb or ethernet based ata?

a list of apropriate hardware is here:

thanks. i will look into this. i’ll update when i do some testing

Will the Ethernet ones make it so I can’t use the Ethernet port for something else? same thing for USB… will it take up the port and not allow me to use it for something else?
