PC hardware

The PC hardware requirements are determined by the size and complexity of the devices that you want to attach to the system.


Small deployments

For smaller deployments of under 30-channels PRI/SIP, 8-Channels BRI or 8-channels of POTS/Analogue, a relatively low-specification PC can be used:

  • Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012
  • Dedicated USB hub and controller (Only with Echo USB, Echo cards will have a RJ45 connection on the back so not required.)
  • 4GB RAM
  • Intel Core i5-2320 3Ghz or equivalent
  • PC should not be used for other heavy-CPU tasks

Medium-sized deployments

For single-site deployments up to 240 ISDN channels, the following PC specification is recommended:

  • Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows Server 2012
  • PCI/PCI-Express slots for Echo hardware
  • 8GB RAM
  • Intel Dual-Core i5 3Ghz or equivalent
  • Keyboard, and mouse (not necessary for Windows 8)
  • PC must be a dedicated machine
