I’m a new asterisk user and I’m studying to obtain the right implemantation for my business scenario.
Doing that I need your help to consider both:
- Server hardware configuration
- PCI/PCI-X Digium’s card to use
- Gateway VOIP eventually to use
- GSM box to handle 2 or more SIM card
some “unified comunication” capabilities
- Outlook integration
- “presence status” software and IM integration
We have three bases with 2 or more ISDN in each of them and they are all connected with a VPN.
The VPN is implemented on a Dell server with proxy and filtering services (OpenVPN and Squid+Dansguardian in two Proxmox separate VMs)
The Dell server has an Intel E7500 (2.93GHz) CPU, 4GB DDR2 RAM, 2xHD Sata Raid1, 4 Ethernet Port 10/100/1000.
My head quarter (the base with the most users and TE) has this situation:
3 ISDN BRI
1 Siemens PBX
25 digital and analogic phone
10 analog cordless dect
2 analog Fax machine on two PSTN lines
Cordless need to stay analogic.
Is the Dell Hardware enough to run a dedicated asterisk VM for the head quarter?
Which configuration you suggest to implement asterisk for my case?
Thank you in advance,
