Like @user34092 I've always seen this done through some sort of home-made spreadsheet/database/document. In addition to the above, a product for keeping track of the various circuits and/or the remote routers supporting customers seems to be a large gap in the market. I can only assume that big ISPs/telcos build their own systems in house... – Murali Suriar Feb 7 '10 at 21:07
@Murali Suriar Yes that seems to be a gap. Interesting. – Steven Feb 8 '10 at 6:34

I've always created an Access or Excel-based solution for this. Everything I've found online has either been too simple, or so complex that configuration requires more time than just building something in 20-30 minutes in Access.

Thanks for your feedback. That's exactly my experience: I also have home-cooked MS-Access database. Just checking if there's anything I am missing out on. – Steven Feb 7 '10 at 18:51
