[quote=“gvagenas”]Thanks for your answers,
David, that means that if i have a powerful server i can put two of the sangoma 8-E1 cards in the same system with no problem?
Sangoma cards have the same requirements as far as the IRQ as with the Digium cards?
Ok in regards to the 108D cards, YES for sure, if the system is specced correctly you will have a smooth running system with no problems at all, although the card handles the majority of the work, it is best to make sure the system is not going to be starved of any power or resources, i would rather over kill then under kill, but that is just me.
In regards to the IRQ resources, let me just put it this way, you can have 10 PCI slots and 10 108D cards and you will not get one Conflict at all, the Sangoma cards handle the resources fantastically, although i believe Digium are repairing this problem with their cards now, which is good to hear, there are still some issues with this and sometimes you never know and you can spend hours diagnosing problems and never suspect it.
If your going to order the 108D cards, make sure you order their cables and don’t bother making your own, i have seen some disasters and i can tell you they can give you never ending headaches and become living nightmares, the extra cost is negligible to be honest.
If you choose to go the Digium path (Nothing wrong with that either) try your best to have two systems identical with the same OS and specifications, one as your DEV box the other as your Production box, make sure you find the best way to do the install, the DEV box should be used to do any development that is pertaining to the production box, too hard to explain the reason why to do it this way, but consider it as a preemptive warning i guess.
Any other info you need just post it and i will try to help out as much as possible.
(NOTE) What i post is purely my opinion, i am sure there are others out there with greatly different opinion, and they maybe should post as well so that way you can try and be as informed as possible, i also have nothing against Digium, and i am not biased towards Sangoma as we use both brands, i just favor the Sangoma ones due to the way they are designed and built, i am all about ease of use, craftsmanship and support of a product, if the product is not well supported i tend to avoid using them unless i have to use them.
