Bandwidth Allocation question


In the CCM3.0 document there is reference to the maximum number of calls allowed from a location, and a number of exceptions to the bandwidth rules:

The following situations are exceptions to the bandwidth rules outlined in the preceding paragraph. In these cases, additional calls can complete even though the available bandwidth has dropped to zero:

Calls made through a Media Termination Point (MTP) can complete even if they exceed the available bandwidth limit.

If a feature temporarily stops call streaming, the bandwidth from that call is temporarily available for use on another call. For example, when a user places a call on hold, the bandwidth from that call becomes available again. If new calls consume all the available bandwidth while the original call is on hold, the user can still retrieve the held call even though it exceeds the available bandwidth limit.

Calls placed simultaneously on the same link can exceed the available bandwidth limit because their bandwidth is not subtracted from the available limit until the calls complete.

Do these exceptions also apply to CCM3.3?
