Understanding Bandwidth Requirements for VoIP Phone Systems

Are you considering installing a new VoIP or hosted phone system for your organization? VoIP enables voice communication over the internet via digital packets, so analyzing the available bandwidth at your office is essential before moving forward. Let’s take a look at some general factors for estimating your VoIP bandwidth requirements:


VoIP uses different codecs to compress voice data for transmission. Common codecs include G.711, G.729, and Opus. Each codec has a different data rate and different benefits, directly affecting the bandwidth needed for a call.


Simultaneous Calls


The number of concurrent calls on your network directly affects the overall bandwidth requirements. Simply multiply the bandwidth needed for a single call by the number of simultaneous calls to determine the total bandwidth needed during peak phone usage. The average bandwidth per call can be found in our blog!


Quality of Service (QoS)


If you prioritize voice traffic and want to ensure a smooth call experience, you may need to reserve extra bandwidth for VoIP to avoid congestion and latency issues.


Read our blog to uncover more valuable insights into understanding the bandwidth requirements for VoIP phone systems.
