We published these tools, the world’s first free online Erlang calculators, in 1996, and they remain the most popular part of our web site. You can use these calculators to work out how many telephone lines you need, how much bandwidth you should reserve for VoIP or how many agents you need at your inbound call center.

They are based on the industry-standard Erlang traffic models, established in the first half of the last century to analyse telecommunications systems.
