Hi, I’m new to this, but i have seen some Intel DMN160TEC and DMT160TEC boards, apparently they are capable of up to 16 spans or 480 ports.
The cards have both T1 and E1 support, and can run multiple ISDN protocls or CAS protocols simultaneously, i also read that the so-called “Business edtion” of asterisk has added support for intel boards, but i couldn’t find WHICH boards it added support for, and i’d rather not buy a $1k OS if i can help it, as the cards are going to set me back quite a bit on their own.
My end implementation will support close to 450 phones(with a possibility of another 50-100 later on)
12U CompactPCI Chassis
2 x CompactPCI CPU Cards(bout 2.0GHZ each)(these are supposed to be able to access the cards as though they were regular pci)
2(possibly 3) x DMN160TEC or DMT160TEC
