It's basically just a stripped down 2600 router. The only plus would be that it can run a slightly newer IOS. They typically come bare so you would have to spend quite a bit more to add some analog interfaces. The MC3810s on the other hand come absolutely loaded with analog interfaces and are cheap as hell. Some of the syntax is a little different though.
Either would be fine for a PSTN cloud. I would stick to something like a 1760 or 2800XM for a cheap branch office though
