    Is there anyone out there who could tell me in lay terms how much bandwith I need per E1 or is there a “rule of thumb” also is since a E1 has 30 channels is that the same as voice paths or simultanoeus call?

    An E1 by definition is 2.048 Mb, commonly referred to as 2 mega-bit bandwidth.

    In reality it is divided into 32 channels (30 voice, 2 control)of 64kb each (32 x 64kb=2.048Mb).
    64kb is the standard used by telcos for g.711 voice encoding. If you use this encoding you have 30 voice channels and therefor the possibility of 30 similtaneous calls.

    It is possile to utilise different encoding and achieve more voice channels per link.

    Note that the concept of seperate channels is only one way of utilising the bandwidth.

    Dear Dmck,

    Many thanks for your reply!

    Does this mean that if I deploy a 16 E1 gateway,requires bandwith (16*2.048Mb)32Mb per month/day?

    Also is the encoding the same thing as a codec?
