Yes I searched the forum but could not find much information
I have been working with Asterisk for 8 years and I have a scenario I have never come across before.
Problem: Create a solution for 5000 extensions/sip trunks with very basic dialplan + cdrs + full log + transcoding g729 to a/ulaw.
I need some information please if anyone can assist. I plan to use Dell R720 servers. I was thinking 1000 extensions or trunks per Dell R720 (I will adjust extensions as per load). Either Asterisk 1.8 or 1.10 will be used. This will be a pure IP setup. No interface cards. I was wondering what the following physical limits are:
Asterisk 1.8 or 1.10?
How many extensions can asterisk handle. I know it all about hardware but lets say its a Dell R720 with 16gig ram and 2 Xeons + SAS drives.
Is there a load difference between sip extensions and sip trunks if they are all using NAT/external IPs?
Does anyone have any important experience they can share with me regarding massive asterisk setups and what the areas are to watch out for?
Any answers or advice is very much appreciated. Thanks All!
