I want to know an AS5350 with a 8E1 card could hanndle how many Voice and Data call simutanously?

There sre some Voice lisence and Data only lisence which are a bit difficult to understand what do they means?

If the AS5350 has the ASAP feature should the buyer pay for the Voice feature more?

Hi hooman-

The AS5350 does support the ASAP technology, it is the licensing that allow you to run various application (ie. Data, Voice, Fax, etc).

Here is an explanation of the Licensing.

A. Yes. The following base feature licenses will no longer be supported: FR5x-DATA-LIC Cisco AS5000 Series IOS Data License per port

Re: AS5350

Hi Dave,

Thank yo very much for your good explainations.

Another quick question: the AS535-8E1-216NP 210 means that we could 216 concurrent call simutanously (8X 30 = 240 64 DS0 channels, so only 7 or something will work)?

It may be confused with the Voice and Data port allocations. right?

BTW,I could not reach that link any way becasue I am a customer only. (Is it reachable for Partners only?)

Thank you again and have good day.
