"So, we won't use any shortcuts in the installation. I strongly advise you to install OpenSIPS using Debian. If you choose to install on another platform, you will have to deal with init scripts and fix the installation of the other packages.

"Hardware requirements

"There are no minimum hardware requirements for OpenSIPS. It will run on an ordinary PC. The best bets we have are from performance tests realized on the 1.2 version. A PC with the following specifications was capable of 28 million complete calls per hour. The testing server was an ordinary desktop—Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz, 1 GB of memory, and 100 MBps Ethernet card. Unfortunately, there are currently no formulas for OpenSIPS dimensioning. The correct hardware, CPU, and memory shall be obtained empirically.

"Software requirements

"The OpenSIPS software runs on a variety of platforms such as Linux, BSD, and Solaris. Some generic packages are available to certain versions of Linux and Solaris. These packages can be downloaded from www.opensips.org/Resources/Downloads. The following packages are required to compile OpenSIPS."
