Also on a related issue (since I am a novice to Freeswitch), regardless of
statistics on number of extensions per system per configuration, I had a
more general question:
That is, does Freeswitch allow for distribution of loading (e.g. supports
interface to media servers running on separate machines)?  Also, I imagine
the SIP signaling part must always be a standalone machine that manages all

Maybe it would be a good idea to create wiki page just to put such kind of
information in a table:


Computer specs | Other comments | Codecs used | With/Without Media | Max
sim. calls reached | etc


That way interested persons could get a grasp what is really all about.


This is very common question based on which many people measure switch
capabilities, so in my opinion should be treated with that in mind (as
marketing oportunity)

This question sounds eerily familiar...

Hello All,

Does anyone know what the capacity of a stand-alone Freeswitch (assuming a
top-of-the-line server), in terms of how many users?

You can have many hundreds of users, but there are a lot of factors: network
infrastructure, call volume, etc. 

Also, when that number is exceeded, how can Freeswitch server be distributed
to accommodate a larger installation?

Yes there are strategies. You definitely want a professional to assist if
this is a serious production environment. There are members of the FS
community who do this sort of thing, or you could email
consulting at freeswitch.org to get assistance from the core FS developers.
