required wan bandwidth, Erlang or number of simultaneous call.
1) Based on my book, there are two ways we calculate required bandwidth using cisco online tool.
We can calculate required wan bandwidth using Erlangs,grade of service, codec type etc. The bandwidth thus calculated is based on maximum hour usage of the day or Erlangs.
We can also calculate the required bandwidth using number of simultaneous calls that need to be supported.
My question in real life which method is widely used to calculate required wan bandwidth for voip?
2) Let say we have two brand new sites ;each site has only 100 phones. For simplicity , we are only concerned with voip traffic to calculate the required bandwidth.
Now one method my book mentions is to calculate
Busy_Hour_Call_Minutes = [50,000 / 22] * .15
Erlangs= Busy-hour-call -min/60
Once we get Erlangs, we could use cisco online tool to calculate required bandwidth.
In order to calculate Erlangs , we must have some statistics of the calls usage like telephone bill which will reflect the total minutes of usage for a site.
What if we are designing a network from a scratch? Just like in example above. These two sites are new and therefore no data for phone usage is available . In such case how can one calculate required bandwidth based on busiest hour usage(Erlang)? Don't we use "simultaneous number of calls that need to be supported in such case rather than Erlangs to calculate required bandwidth ?

Internet security is important with the increasing attacks that are happening every day. Many internet and browsing security solutions exist, but some are not very easy to use or maybe the question is how can I enable them?
