I don’t want to start the “How many calls can Asterisk handle?” discussion
or “How many angels can stand on the point of a pin?” discussion either.
But can anyone contribute some practical knowledge of systems that take in
channel bank T1s or DS3s from “far away”, and process the calls?
I am looking for real world, been there, done that, or “check the ‘Belchfire
Systems GigaFiber 65536′ system”.
Not to start the discussion, but “Is there a board that will take a DS3 (672
channels) and a system that will handle the calls, or is that a silly
Is there an IP box that would take the DS3 and then a system that would
handle the calls? My guess would be yes because the actual call load would
be far lower than 672 calls. Maybe 100-150 or so simultaneous.
Each line/call would have to have absolute caller ID. In other words, PSTN
