    Looking for some very small wall-mountable options for a 4 channel 3CX system advice.

    The hardware specs start at 16 channels and an i3. Not sure what is actually needed to run a 4 channel PBX.

    I've used a lot of the APU2C4 boards for freepbx systems and they work great. They are quad 1Ghz though. The UP boards are pretty similar but with Atom CPUs (until the more expensive units).

    Are these acceptable CPU wise? Or do I need to get into an i3? And if so, any suggestions on a low-cost, wall mountable option?

    should I say that I have one of those and run a test system on it?
    So far stable but I dont have production workload. Only the null modem cable setup is a bit of work...

    The AMD GX-412HC ( in the APU) has a passmark score of 1497, the N3050 is only 882. Thats 4 core vs 2 core so there's a bit of a loss on single thread performance in that one benchmark but that suggests the APU is likely a better platform.

    It's a super solid platform. I can run 20 concurrent g.711 calls on this with asterisk and 100 registrations with low system load.
