I am configuring 4 no's E1 port's with mgcp service, On 3rd port it prompts me with the below error.It is a new router with PVDM3 64 and no conferencing and transcoding uptil now has been configured to utilize the DSP.
My question is can i configured 120 channels with PVDM3 64 ?? I have used the DSP calculator and it without transcoding/conferencing it is saying no dsp required, i am confuse so can anybody confirm to me how much DSP will be required.
% Not enough DSP resources available to configure pri-group on controller E1 0/1/0
% The remaining dsp resources are enough for 4 time slots.
% For current codec complexity, 2 extra 16 channel dsp(s) are required to create this voice port.

voice interface(0/0:15) or DSP may not be present
[+5] to Jorge for explaination.
you can also refer the fantatsic DOC by AOK
There are many possible scenarios that could explain what is going on, before going further, can you please post the output from:
-show voice dsp group all
Remember that you can setup the codec complexity under "voice-card", and if you use "Medium or High" the calculation will be different, in addition, is there any other Voice Interface Card installed on the Router?
Let's recall few things: 1 PVDM3-64 has 480 Credits per core, since the PVDM has two cores, we have a total of 960 credits.
One single DSO on a T1-E1 consumes 15 credits if Codec Complexity Flex is being used (Default), now, some math:
E1 = 30 Bchannels
4 E1 = 120 Bchannels
120 * 15 = 1800 Credits
You'll need at least another PVDM3-64 to support the 4 E1 interfaces.
I think you may want to verify the DSP Calculator again:
DSP Modules Required:
DSP Module Allocation:
Router Slot 0:
120 Voice (94%) 8 Available (6%)
PVDM Slot 0/0: PVDM3-128
Call Volume Allocation:
Router Slot 0
Slot 0/0: VWIC3-4MFT-T1/E1(E1)
BTW, I created the Calculator Session with Low Complexity, you have to make sure no g729 calls will go through the Router, otherwise, additional resources will be needed.
