Hi There,

I'm interested in setting up Kerio Operator for when my office moves to a new location in June 2012.

I'm curious as to what people are running this on and if I can get away with the following:

http://usa.aopen.com/Products_detail.aspx?auno=2927

This is an Aopen Digital Engine machine that I'm currently using as my router. I'm interested in getting another to run as our phone system.

We are a pretty small operation with only 10 employees. Is there any reason why an Atomo N270 processor with 2GB of RAM running off a CF card wouldn't work?

Thanks for your help!

Hi,

This does not depend on how many people you have but rather on the number of concurrent calls. We tested Operator on an Atom N330 and with 5 concurrent calls, the web interface was already noticeably slow. I guess the Atom does not do very well when many process context switches are required.

The HW might be OK for you, but I still recommend that you test it first.

Thanks for the reply Vladimir!

That makes complete sense. We only have 5 lines and rarely are we using all at once. Still, it seems like I'd be at the bare minimum of computing power required. Maybe the Kerio Operator Box is for me.

Anybody have any reviews on this hardware?

Maybe some newer Atom would do better (Atom 525 or 550), but this is just a guess, we have not tested them so far.

The smaller Operator Box is a 1.5 GHz Celeron, see the specification.

I checked out that spec page but it doesn't list the processor.

Anyway, thanks for your help and info. I am seriously considering this product for our upcoming move.

The best rule of thumb to use (it is linux with an asterisk engine anchoring media) that while CPU and RAM are imprtant, the more determining factor in making sure the system has adequate performance is due to the L3 cache on the CPU. This makes a world of difference. Until the Atom and other small processors start providing a more reasonable amount of L3 cache, they may not be a good choice for a voice processing engine system.
