ScopTEL Sangoma Transcoding Installation

ScopTEL - Sangoma Transcoding Installation


Purpose of Document


Depending on the Sangoma Hardware Transcoding SKU the solution can support between 30 and 4000 simultaneous G.729 sessions.
Hardware transcoding off loads CPU cycles from the host CPU and does not require software G.729 licenses
Hardware transcoding reduces transcoding delay.
High Compression CODEC’s allow more concurrent calls through Internet connections with modest bandwidth.
Voice Transcoding can reduce costs where bandwidth is expensive and VoIP is desired to further reduce costs and increase mobility.

Example: Sangoma D-150

D-150 Box installed in local LAN communicates with ScopTEL using Ethernet by IP address.
Each D-150 Scales from 30 to 400 simultaneous G.729 sessions and can be ‘stacked’ using a single Base IP Octet
One ScopTel server must be configured in SNG-TC server mode
Additional ScopTel servers on this network can share the SNG-TC server and D-150 cluster when configured to Connect to remote SNG-TC server
