Dear all, i am confused in gathering the reources of DSP. Currently are my assumptions so kindly correct them
1) Routers with PVDM slots can be installed with PVDM which are also called DSPs.
2) Network modules comes that have already builtin DSPs or PVDMs ?
point 2 is more confusing. Are there any NMs that comes with their own pvdm or shall we say come with their own DSPs ? Are these DSPs builtin or do we need to buy them seperately ?
I hope i am able to clear my confusion but in case if there is any pls let me know.
Thanks in advance
The NM-HDV2 has four SIMM sockets (called Banks) that hold the PVDM2 DSP cards
PVDM2 64 4 DSPs
PVDM2 48 3 DSPs
if you have 3 PVDM64 * 4 = 12 DSPs
if you add 2 more optional NMs PVDM64 * 4 = 8
8 + 12 = 20
i think this is the way has been calculated
- Rob please, correct me if i missed something with the above calculation !!
I wish we did answer your questions and you are able now to answer your manager as well
and please rate the helpful post
No worries my friend
The "boss" needs to understand that DSP configuration/calculation is a
real science that takes a great number of factors into consideration. In "theory"
a 2821 could be fully loaded up to support 18 DSP's but in reality the CPU
power on a 2821 is not sufficient.
Attached is a file from Jorge @ AT&T with a DSP chapter that will give you great info.

Hope this helps!
