    First I want to say, that we were not looking for a short time hire but for someone we could build a partnership with and who would accompany us for the coming time. After a couple of months working with Errol I can happily say that we have a very strong, deep and professional connection and I see us working together for the next years.Errol has a deep understanding of Systems based on his tremendous experience in that field which he developed through working for many years in this industry.We had some particularly challenging aspects in our project which Errol solved because of his experience but also because he quickly adopts to new environments and learns very fast.On the social side I would describe Errol as a strong networker, a person who loves to communicate with people and always tries (and succeeds) to create a positive atmosphere. I enjoyed working with Errol and I am very much looking forward working with him in the future.<br/>

    I need an install of ASTPP with Freeswitch in an Openvz container. The OS can be either Debian 7, Ubuntu-12.04 or CentOS-6.5. What is your recommendation? This can be a single server install as it is a proof of concept.

For this single install, would you recommend installing Opensips?I will need all functionality working (including CDR reporting). I will need some documentation on how to configure correctly.
