I’m the network admin for a small tech school. We are located in a single building. We are going to need a new PBX this summer and I’m rooting for *. I’ve been messing with * for about a year and a half now and all is going very well on the test system we have setup. We have about 6 phones running through a POTS line with a digium card.
The plan for this summer is to scrap our POTS lines and go with a PRI. I’m also planning on rolling out a pure * install. We’ll have under 100 phones, voicemail, and a single PRI with 24 lines. We currently only have about 60 phones and 7 POTS lines. I expect no more than 7 concurrent ingoing/outgoing calls and maybe 4 concurrent to the voicemail system. We’d like to have some DIDs setup, and have the ability to record a call now and then if someone would ever call and be threatening over the phone. I’m planning on rolling out PoE switches and using Polycom IP300 and IP500 phones with the PoE adapters from Polycom. I’ve had good luck with these phones on our test system, so I figured will just stick with them.
I’m 95% confident that all will go well, but I was wondering what kind of server load I can expect. Also, I’m pretty sure I’ve covered all the bases but I’d like your input on what I’ve missed or what I could change for the better.
