    Hi,
    So I have a couple of sites running SBC on a windows server, and a couple running SBC on a Raspberry Pi 2, all working ok.

    I am wondering the best option for sites with more than 15 extensions.

    I am not sure how many extensions is recommended for Raspberry Pi 2, as they are not fully supported yet, although working.

    I have checked out some basic devices for instance Intel NUC, and other small form factor PC's.
    I guess I could use a Intel NUC and install Debian and SBC, but not sure if anyone have tried this?

    I do not really want to run windows on the SBC, I would prefer a unmanaged solution where you can set and forget.

    Any thoughts on this, what do you use as SBC hardware?
    Thanks

    I use them mainly for the internal calls not to consume traffic, but this isn't critical due to most clients having a fibre connection.

    Main reason however is for CTI to work.

    CTI works without the sbc as long as you are in out of office mode
