Hello Everyone,

I have been trying to do some bulk termination and interconnect with some long distance providers, and most of them require g.729 as the codec. I have installed g.729 codec as per Elastix Without Tears. How many channels should I expect to get out of that? I know that it depends on the CPU but does it also have any limits to number of channels like the Digium G.729 code?

Thanks

Without knowing too much about how you specifically did it, I'd suggest that no there shouldnt be a limit unless you use the official Digium code.

Here is what I did to get g.729 working (ref. Elastix Without Tears by Bin Sharif):

38.1 INSTALLING G729 AND G723 CODECS
If you have the licence for the g729 codec and found that the Digium version of g729
is a little problematic and would like to try the free version, following is the method of
installing it as described by David Klaverstyn

HHHHHMMMMM, there is no limit to g729 concurrent calls,:woohoo:
nut g729 is not stable in many CPUs,
if you have a problem in some calls with g729,
It's good for you to test iLBC codec,
the compression is like g729 but it is stable in all systems,
but i don't know is still asterisk support iLBC in new versions or not!:blink:

GOOD LUCK

Yeah it does and its dead-easy to install / compile, all automated.

I even have binaries for the ilbc .so files which you can "drop-in" that work if you dont wanna compile, saves hassle :)
