Hardware requirement of 30 concurrent calls


I am planning to go for asterisk which is capable of 30 concurrent calls… Can anyone recommend me a good hardware configuration.

Thank you

Any server class single processor machine with 2GB RAM should do fine, maybe more if you plan on recording calls.

If all VOIP you will need enough available bandwith (see teh wiki for bandwith calculators) plus a little extra for sanity sake.

If using PSTN I would suggest you get a dual port T1\E1 card. If you use E1’s you only need one E1 line but will have no room fro growth as it only allows 30 calls. If you use a T1 you will need 2 lines as they only allow up to 24 calls each.
