[Freeswitch-users] embedded freeswitch compatable hardware

I asked this question on my local linux user group mailing list, and got the
recommendation to ask here.

Anyway, at the moment I am running Asterisk on an IP04 embedded system.

It works well most of the time, however there are some bugs that do, under
circumstances lead to less then desirable behaviour (such as on some occasions
which I don't fully understand sometimes the remote system fails to generate
any audio packets when there is no audio - almost like silence suppression was
supported by the remote system - and asterisk fails to generate any audio
packets in return; on another slower computer running the same SIP software and
on the same network everything works fine; as far as I can tell the software -
twinkle - doesn't even support silence suppression).

I suspect at least some - if not all - of the issues I have encountered may be
resolved with Freeswitch, however I don't really want to replace my small,
energy efficient, embedded system, with a large, power hungry computer system.

An added complication is I need at least 1 analogue port to connect to the
Australian based telephone line (2 ports exchange ports and 1 extension port
would be ideal but not essiential).

Unfortunately, I have been told that the IP04 hardware isn't compatable with
the requirements of Freeswitch. Such as not having a MMU. So there doesn't
appear to be much effort porting Freeswitch to IP04 as a result.

I do have a spare TDM400p card, although as it is full height, suspect this
isn't going to help.

Are there any other good alternatives?
