Hi Magesh,


The bandwidth requirements vary depending on what Codec is being used as you nicely noted. Here is some related info. The first doc has a good link to the TAC Voice Bandwidth Calculator which is very helpful in making these determinations. The question really is related to the number of simultaineous calls vs the overall daily totals;
