Are there any parameters that we could configure inside any given contect example [from-internal] that restrict the number of concurrent calls between phones belonging to that context and phones on other contexts?
like for example: count=5
What Iam trying to achieve is limiting the number of concurrent IP ext-ext calls between extensions registered to the same Asterisk server if these extensions are separated by a limited bandwidth WAN circuit.
Remote corporate office with 10 users registered to Asterisk server that’s hosted at the company’s Head Office across MPLS private WAN.
1- Set a limit of 5 concurrent calls from that remote office over the WAN to other remote extensions, by doing this we guarantee quality by NOT oversubscribing valiable WAN bandwidth.
2- Only use G729 for calls between extensions from different contexts while using G722 for calls between extensions of the same context. This will provide excellent call quality for calls over the LAN, while conserving bandwidth for calls over the WAN.
Has anyone thought about these requirements before?
Your comments are very much appreciated.
