    That depends on what you mean by multiple clients. If you mean multiple
    customers of a single ISP, you would provision serveral PRIs through a
    telco, and assign a phone number that will hunt down through all of PRIs
    to find an open port.

    If you mean multiple clients in the sense that you're a dial wholesaler
    and you're providing service to multiple ISPs, you'd still do hunt groups
    as mentioned by other posters, plus you could also assign each wholesale
    client a unique RADIUS domain to allow for client-specific attributes to
    be applied to dialin sessions. For example, this could be used to control
    the IP addresses that are assigned a given ISP's customers.
