g729 limitation by channels?

I only have 40 channels with their licenses (g729) and my operator is sending the calls to me in this codec, what would happen if i’m getting 41 or 60 or even more concurrent calls with this codec?
will they failed to be answer by my system? will they be automatically translated to gsm or g711?? Im curious about does extra calls entering in my system…

appreciate the help!


Test it and see. It should go over to G711u

No, the calls will fail. Asterisk doesn’t change it’s SDP offering based on the licenses available at the time of call-setup. I believe you will get ‘no translator path’ errors.

I ended up having to purchase 20% more licenses than I would ever need on one server just to avoid the problem.
