Constant noise in background in voip network


we have 3 branches and 20 small home offices setup.

we installed CUCM 8.6 running and serving all the branches and home offices.

All branch voip network is good, but we hear background noise while calling home office ip phones, the background noise is heard at headoffice only, at home office side it is good.

i couldn't figure out where it is going wrong.

the setup is like

IP Phone------> call manager------> gateway(cisco 1940)------->internet----------> homeoffice router(cisco881)--------->ip phone.

the home offices are connected over DMVPN tunnels. and the bandwidth is 1 MB for the tunnels.

attaching router config for head office gateway and home office router

Constant noise in background in voip network

Is your packetization greater than 80 bytes on the router. If yes try setting codec packetization to 80 bytes on dial-peer or voice-class  codec.

It is not a voice gateway, there are no dial-peers on this gateway, its just a vpn router , gateway for home offices..
