In my experience, usually it’s only for a fraction of a second, although you’d hear it repeatedly over the course of only a few seconds, but it sounds kind of like what happens when the connection between your SIP client and the SIP server is losing packets.

This could be some kind of firewall/network issue.

in case you want to monitor the rtp traffic for debuging purposes, use this command " rtp set debug on" . I dont know your network structure , but as you are using dahdi for outbound calls instead of SIP this could be more related to the Telcom company or card issue than a network issue.

If the SIP clients are losing connection with the server this cause call drop issues and you will see on the logs unreachable messages or lagged all depend on the network issue
