Trixbox, alternative

Say, Trixbox free version seems to no longer be updated.
Is there an alternative that is being updated?

José MéndezCommented:
No. All is free. This doesn't mean it a lesser product. If what you are looking for is support, they do have paid support:

Tx, but they don't seem to support Snom or Quintum.
Any thoughts on this?

José MéndezCommented:
You didn´t mention this initially. You will have to research about Snom compatibility with Elastix, as I don´t have much experience with this topic.

It seems not tested.
I'm looking for another implementation other than Trixbox please.
Any experience with Digium?

The AsteriskNow is a good choice as it is supported by the company that provided Asterisk in the first place.

FreePBX now has it's own distribution CD. This is a well supported version from the people that built the GUI front end that most other distributions use. As for Snom or other phones, any SIP based phone can be used. There is a module available for Endpoint Management that covers a wide variety of phones. Adding other phones to the module isn't difficult.

How stable would you say are the above free downloads?
Are there any hardened versions of them that don't require yearly subscriptions etc?

José MéndezCommented:
Stability is a gray area. I don't dare to state it will be stable for your deployments. If you could fill in the design variables needed, maybe I could share my opinion.

You can say, how many concurrent calls will be handled, how many voice mail calls/minutes, how many SIP/IAX extensions, stuff like that. Also what hardware platform will you be using and so on.

What I can tell you about the underlying OS, is that CentOS is pretty much the same platform Cisco CallManager uses (called RedHat instead), so its a very mature OS to deal with.

You may harden the server same as you would any Trixbox. Its Linux inside.

Tx. Can you tell me if switchvox works fine with non Digium sip devices i.e. Quintum Gateways?

Also,
Which version do you recommend I install on the HP Proliant ML 110 G6 server with 4Mb of Ram. The 32bit version of 64bit version of the software above?
My main question is a regards the bus and not slowing it down due to the 64Bit version. On the other hand the 64bit allows for additional Ram.

I haven't worked with Quintum Gateways unfortunately.

64bit version.

Why do you say 64bit please?
0
 
José MéndezCommented:
Mostly because of scalability concerns. If at some point you want the system to grow, Memory is the likeliest component that will be / can be upgraded. Call recording for example, if you decide to implement it, will consume quite a lot of memory.

How about 250G hard disk.
Is this sufficient for above calll volume?
