My company is thinking about running Asterisk as a server for SIP based conference calls, because we had some problems in the past with Skype. The biggest problems seems to be that Skype simply adds bandwidths usage for each conference caller.
Now my question is, is Asterisk able to merge the streams of several callers into one stream to reduce the necessary bandwith? (Rather than sending one stream per caller to every caller in a conference.)
Many thanks in advance,
