Facilities used?
Can direct media be used?
Number of erlangs where one party doesn’t support direct media?


thanks, but is there any best practice or some theory that can be used as a standard user requirement for running asterisk

Please advise



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.
