AS5200 uptime is 52 minutes
System returned to ROM by power-on
System image file is "flash:c5200-is-l.121-22b.bin"

cisco AS5200 (68030) processor (revision D) with 16384K/16384K bytes of memory.

Can some one tell me if it will be able to manage this task or will I have to go for a AS5350 instead ?

That model doesn't do VOIP, so you are going to need a diffrent gateway, and the AS5350 would be a good choice, but an AS5300 with the latest IOS would also be a good choice. One thing on AS5300’s is they came in two flavors, dialup, and VOIP, and converting a dialup AS5300 to VOIP is cost prohibitive, so make sure you get a VOIP box to start with. You will know if one does VIOP if it has this line in the show version "48 DSP(s). Depending on the IOS version it may, or may not give a voice resources count.

I have never seen an AS5200 with VOIP cards, and I don’t see that as having been an option for it, but even if it was. Chances are it will be the same situation as converting an AS5300 from DIAL up to VOIP. Where it’s cheaper to sell the dialup gateway and using the money from it to help buy a VOIP gateway, as the VOIP cards alone when you can find them used, which are rare, go for almost what a VOIP gateway sells for.

I have a lot of experience in the used Cisco VOIP access server arena, and unless you find yourself with a dead VOIP access server on your hands with a good set of DSP’s, upgrading a dialup access server isn’t worth it. If you want something cheep, look into buying a VOIP card for a 2620 as they can be bought reasonably, but it won’t have the capacity of something like a AS5350.
