General reviews / experiences of PBXNSIP

Hi,

 

We're looking at PBXNSIP as a replacement for our Asterix system (as we're a windows house, no real problems with Asterix).

 

However, I can't find any real reviews from end-users on the web... does anyone have any good or bad experiences to share?

 

In pariticular, we are looking at whether we:

connect PBXNSIP with Office Communications server;

run it on a virtual server (Hyper-V) - I know this is unsupported, but has anyone tried it with a live system?

 

The features list looks good, and the fact it's on windows means we can support it in-house, with external help for configuration, but I'm interested to see how many people are running these systems at the moment.

 

Any thoughts you can share would be much appreciated.

 

 

Thanks,

 

Kev

There is something on the Wiki about OCS - see http://wiki.pbxnsip.com/index.php/Office_C...ications_Server.

 

Virtual servers have the problem that the PBX cannot safely allocate CPU resources as other VM may seize them as well. This will result in jitter. Thats why we say for testing it is fine, but for operation you should avoid it.

 

Well, we run it for several years... Also Microsoft was running it on some of their booths (e.g. http://www.voip-info.de/cebit2007/newsartikel__3254.php). TMC also wrote something nice (blog.tmcnet.com/blog/tom-keating/voip/pbxnsip-ippbx-review.asp).

Cheers for that; those links have helped a lot.

 

I just have two more questions...

 

Am I right in thinking that if we reserved an amount of CPU that would be sufficient to be supported by yourselves?

 

Also, is there anywhere I can see some end-user feedback? I'm happy that Microsoft themselves have demoed it (and therefore must have some faith in it's capabilities), but some real-life end-user comments would be very helpful in persuading my management that this is the product for us.
