Raspberry pi 3 install freeswitch

Could some one tell me whether it's worth buying a couple of pi 3s and using them as freeswitch servers ?
Each unit will need to have modgsm running to enable calls coming into a sim card and also be able to transcode g711 to opus.
The number of concurrent calls will be minimal.
Already have two older pi2 units running asterisk and chan dongle and am thinking of trying freeswitch out
(Preferably fusionpbx) .
Been warned in the past against it because the olds pi 2 units are not upto running opus transcoding and freeswitch .
Will two new pi 3 units be upto the task ?
Any feedback deeply appreciated.

I don't think personally they will. Others may have a different view. I think you just need to get one and give it a try, see if it suits your purpose. The ODROID-C2 has a little more power, I would choose this over a PI3 anyday.

What power supply do you use for the ODROID? I assume that's what you are running in production.
Thanks,
Jim.

Due to less endurance, SD card as system disk might not good idea for production. Better to use SBC with on-board nand. However PC as ip pbx still preferred.

This is debatable now for example the new Samsung A1 cards have a 5 year endurance for constant video recording.
