we have a pair of AS5300s that we use to terminate calls to Africa. We added more capacity, and found that the 2600 over there couldn't keep up. We found that increasing the codec payload size from 20 to 40 bytes on the US side took a load off of the cpu, and lowered the bandwidth required; but this benefit appears to be unidirectional. What/how do I tweak the african side so that the reply packets are larger as well? The African side never initiates a call, it just has "dial-peer pots" to talk to the telco.
Add a voip dial-peer on the Africa side that has the codec selection and payload size desired, and put the following command in that dial-peer: incoming called-numberx where x is the first number of numbers in Africa that are called.
For example if all called numbers sent from US to Africa begin with 0 then make the x be 0. This will force calls coming into the VoIP leg in Africa to use the parameters you set on this dial-peer, instead of voip dial-peer "0" which is not configurable.
I added a dial-peer voip that matched the dial-peer pots. (incoming called-number same as destination-pattern). I deleted and added them back in that order (voip peer first) and it appears to be what I needed; my traffic appears to be symmetrical, with a decreased amt of packet/traffic.
