I’m working on a Student Project concerning a network for a Hospital Complex.
The Hospital has 22000 employees, multiple (about 10) buildings across about a square kilometer.
There are going to be about 700 fixed IP posts, 200 DECT IP phones and between 50-280 analog posts.
At first we looked at the Avaya IP Office solution, but they charge high prices for hardware and licensing. An Asterisk solution would be less than 1/3 of the cost.
I talked to 2 of the project supervisors; they would give Asterisk a chance if I can give convincing arguments.
I am now looking for reference projects where an enterprise of this scale successfully set up and runs Asterisk.
I couldn’t find anything on the Asterisk homepage (maybe that would be a valuable addon to the page).
