We recently did some work with a company that produces trade shows across the country. Part of the package that a booth-buyer gets is an operational phone. That means that in every city, the local phone company was contracted for 100+ telephone lines at each show.

What a second – 100 lines installed at each show? 100 Orders to get installed wrong by AT&T or another company? We've got a better answer!

Our solution was to take a Xorcom XR3048 Asterisk chassis and pair it with Elastix and Aastra Telephones. This gave us the flexibility to use SIP trunks for connectivity, and easy to setup Aastra telephones. The client liked the way that it sounded, but would it work? It sounds too good to be true.

We started with a single Xorcom XR3048 and 10 phones. We configured the system at Medlin Communications and the customer took the system to the trade show site. They plugged it in, and guess what? Inbound and outbound calls worked just fine! That was enough, and the order for the second Xorcom chassis and another 90 Aastra telephones came in.

The second show was setup and all of the phones came on line. We tested the system up to 30 concurrent calls before the show with no issues. Another 40 phones are being added to the system to allow for some future flexibility.

Medlin Communications provides Asterisk-based systems in the Chicago are and around the country, with a focus on Elastix and the Xorcom CompletePBX.

Hi there nice to here that!!! Remember that elastix is simply a distro unifying some soft from many providers like digium´s asterisk and freepbx...so cheers to them also..
Every install of elastix/asterisk if well deployed should work flawlessly if installed by professionals with know how and expertise.
But sadly this are the fewest installs...So cheer up for a good install and remember to update this post in 6 months when the first major maintenance release should be applied to that production system for security reasons.
