currently discussing the specs with the supplier. Will likely be a 2U machine with lots of CPU (16core EPYC) and 4x full-height PCIe slots (for TE820 or the like).

RAM / SSD I'd go for rather "minimal" config (in terms of an EYPC server, 64GB / 1TB) for now, can always be upgraded later if we should have need.

The point of the "lots of CPU" is to accomodate the un-optimized processing of many virtual E1 lines.

Ok, specs are rather settled: AMD EPYC 7313P, Supermicro H12SSW-iN, 64 GB ECC DDR4-3200, 1TB NVMe

I've also ordered IDC connectors + ribbon cables for both legacy + differential timing ports of the TE820 cards.
