Bandwidth occupation


#1

[color=darkblue]Hi there,

I recently started to work with Asterisk and i got a simple question:
once i establish a call does it continues to passing by Asterisk, occupying bandwidth space?
Is there a way of this not occur?

tks,

Cecilia,

Asterisk stay in the middle of the path if you force reinvite=no or if you use any option that require the supervision of the server like monitoring or transfer I think …

If a SIP device can reinvite, the device will reinvite the other device to negociate a direct rtp communication IF no forbiden by the server. You can take a look there, same topic. May give you some tips.
