Polling bandwidth for Avaya Communication and Media Servers

The average bandwidth requirements of Avaya™ Communication and Media Servers vary with different traffic levels.

This section assumes that the default polling interval of five seconds is used.

If an Avaya Communication and Media Server handles 20 000 calls simultaneously, the bandwidth necessary for polling RTCP data can be up to 18 Mbps.

If an Avaya Communication and Media Server handles one-sixth of this amount, that is, around 3 000 calls simultaneously, the bandwidth necessary for polling RTCP data is up to 3 Mbps.

Based on the previous calculations, a bandwidth of 5 Mbps suits most needs.
