I assume you mean G.723.1. It is very difficult to licence the patents 
related to G.723.1 unless you are a huge user. G.729 has a well defined 
scheme for licencing the relevant patents on an incremental basis, 
starting at a modest numbers of channels. G.723.1 is quite problematic. 
For that reason it is unlikely that G.723.1 will be available as a host 
software transcoder module any time soon. There are, however, hardware 
card options which can provide this codec.
