How accurate is VoIP Calculator?

Converting between lines and IP bandwidth is a precise calculation and the results are accurate. Bear in mind that VoIP Calculator only models layer three and above of the OSI model and does not take into account the bandwidth overhead of data link protocols such as Ethernet of ATM.

Converting between busy hour traffic and voice paths (and therefore bandwidth) uses the Erlang B traffic model that has been used throughout the industry for decades. It makes certain assumptions about the nature of offered traffic which may not necessarily apply in your case. For example, It assumes random (Poisson) arrivals. This is usually reasonable, but sudden peaks of calls resulting from a radio or television advertisement are not accurately modelled. In these circumstances, you should use the calculators with caution and common sense.
