Sorry for dupliction pls remove: Asterisk transcodeing

Hi All,

Aparently one of the main issues limiting Asterisk from scaling to large implementations is transcoding.

We all know that Asterisk uses “signed linear” as its internal Codec format, where it needs to transcode both legs of any call (inbound and outbound) into this signed linear format.

Is there away to switch this behaviour off so that Asterisk stops transcoding into and outof signed linear at lest when both bridged voice channels are using the same Codec?

Much appreciated.
