VoIP and Video capacity planning

For 1000 users, what is the bandwidth for backbone to run VoIP and video?

Thanks

Re: VoIP and Video capacity planning

Total packet size = (L2 header: MP or FRF.12 or Ethernet) + (IP/UDP/RTP header) + (voice payload size).PPS = (codec bit rate) / (voice payload size).Refer URL

Re: VoIP and Video capacity planning

the above link is very good as it pertains to 'per call bandwidth consumption'

you may need to use a little more to find your answer such as a capacity planning procedure(s). since you have voice and video, this will be two part.

(minding that video if used for all users will require much more capacity than the voice; possibly upto 50 - 100 times more depending on your use/needs)

some decent capacity planning providers, case studies and best practices are as follows:

nice case study by cisco on capacity planning:
