Hi Friends,
I want to know the minimum required and the better hardware I need for 60 concurrent/simultaneous. SIP calls.
Thanks a lot for your help

Don't worry about the hardware, any new machine can do 60 calls even with transcoding.
You should worry about your bandwidth. You'll need a good and fast connection.

Transcoding becomes a little bit of a worry if you have 60 calls you're wanting to change the codec of, however if you go for any stock-standard Core2Duo 2Ghz+ then you'll have cpu power to burn.
2GB Ram wouldnt go amiss
But most importantly as ramoncio said, bandwidth coming out your ears would help greatly. Use a provider who supports iLBC or g729, and if possible IAX2 Trunking (Saves lots of bandwidth).

Thanks a lot for your reply.
I think there are no problem for the bandwidth because my server is hosted in a datacenter with a 100MB connction.
But maybe it's necessary to change my CPU, because I have a AMD Athlon 64 2GHz with 2GB of RAM.
Thanks again for your help

It'll definitely be OK if you're not transcoding
Otherwise, chuck elastix on the box, ssh in and then run:
asterisk -r
Then, type in:
core show translation recalc 10

Look at the two codecs it'll be transcoding between, and remember there are 1000ms in 1 second, so mine looks like this:
http://pastie.org/441503
Which means it takes approx 36ms to go from g711 to iLBC
If I had ALL my calls doing that, I could host 1000ms / 36ms = 27 concurrent calls. Bear in mind that assumes nobody else is using Music on Hold, or that anything else is happening to the system, so realistically I could do a "safe" 20 calls, a "probable" 25 calls, and a system max (probably unstable) of 27 on this CPU.

RAM requirements are minimal so dont worry about that either :)

Hope this helps


Chill.
