this hit the newswire over the last week but seen no reference with it regard to Sangoma products, or any other PBX for that matter.
This looks like an intel problem and effects all companies using their C2000 atom cpu’s. i.e. it is not Sangoma’s fault. What will differentiate the suppliers is how they deal with it.
Unless the hardware manufacturer has addressed this with a “board level fix” then even the equipment you buy today will have this problem.
For details of the problem google “intel atom bug”. Essentially high failure rate from 18months into the life of the prouct.
Sources include intel’s shareholders quarterly conference call, i.e. profits warning.
Who has acted so far: Cisco, Supermicro, Synology among others…
Intels January 2017 C2000 spec update, table 1, page 10. AVR54
"System May Experience Inability to Boot or May Cease Operation"
This bug effect the revision B0, and the few cpu’s I’ve checked, only the revision B0 exists. i.e if you are using a C2000 atom cpu you have this bug unless it has been fixed by the board manufacturer in the recent months. (i.e. Supermicro say all boards since Jan 2017 are ok)
Check your cpu revision out here to be sure:
(also check on wikipedia)
Have a call in with my retailer. Awaiting response.
Also a quick chat with a sangoma US sales rep and he was not aware of any issues yet.
I would be really bummed if I bought one of these after this became public. Just really glad held of buying that spare pbx.
Do not be tempted to buy cheap Atom based kit on ebay either
note this is all my personal opinions and I do not speak for my employer or for any other group.
