How many calls can be made with a PVDM2-48 ?

I'm having voice quality issues. During a conversation, a call gets more and more faint going into a metalic sound to the point where you just hang up.

This happens on calls to the PSTN and accross the WAN. The router has a PVDM2-48. How do you calculate how many calls can be made with this PVDM? How do I know if I'm going over the alloted resources?

I did a test and got this. Does it mean I missing something?

Select option : 16

no, a PVDM2-48 has 3 DSPs

each channel can support a call with G711, so those are 48 calls if you're only using them for media termination.

i recall some bugs causing metalic sound, might be a good idea to upgrade the dsps FW

Thanks for the response. What about G729 calls? Is it one per channel? What about transcoding? Is it one tracoding resource perchannel?
