Asterisk is extremely configurable. You need to have a good idea of your requirements before you try to size a system. You probably want to start by taking a day or two reading the book at asteriskdocs.org/, to get some idea of the options. Otherwise, you probably need to employ a consultant, for which you need the jobs forum.
