+=== DAHDI driver
+
+DAHDI (Digium Asterisk Hardware Driver Interface) is an extremely
+popular driver for a variety of POTS/PSTN and also TDM interface boards
+by originally Zaptel, later Digium and now most recently Sangoma.
+
+DAHDI is supported by a wide range of open source PBX / softswitch software,
+including Asterisk, FreeSWITCH and yate.
+
+There is an experimental DAHDI driver for the icE1usb available from
+the `laforge/icE1usb` branch of the https://github.com/osmocom/dahdi-linux
+git repository.
+
+When using that DAHDI Linux kernel driver, there is no need for
+osmo-e1d.  The USB interface is directly managed inside the kernel.
