    Any1 had problem vith cisco AS53000 reporting 30 Voice resources and having five c549 modules inside. It should say 60 Voice Channels.

    Version of Dspware in VFC slot 1 is 3.6.16aL

    #sh vfc 1 version vcware

    Voice Feature Card in Slot 1:
    VCware Version : 9.20a
    ROM Monitor Version: 1.3
    DSPware Version : 3.6.16aL
    Technology : C549


    do check the codec complexity if it’s at medium.

    “4 Channelized E1/PRI port” means 4 E1 = 120 voice channels

    “five c549 modules inside” is 5 PVDM module with 3 DSPs/PVDM

    i.e 3 Dsp per PVDM module

    15 DSPs in all

    each DSp carries 4 channels…in al you should have 60 voice channels, if u get something contrary to this, check the codec complexity for appropriate settings.

    if codec complexity is set to be high, it reduces the voice channel by half

    simply set your codec complexity to “MEDIUM”.

    EMAIL ME AT if that does not help but i’m sure it will.


    I have problem with a Cisco 5300 with 549 type DSP cards, if I load the 549 firmware, the boot indicates I have incompatible card+firmware. If I load 542 firmware, there are no console errors, but the DSP cards do not come up (if I go to test dsp> show stats => indicates “firmware error”).

    Any suggestions anyone? TIA.
