[Freeswitch-users] mod_skypopen - performence and capacity.

from you mail seems that there are some details of mod_skypopen that
you've not got.

First of all I would counseil you to read *entirely* mod_skypopen wiki
page, you will spare yourself lot of time and frustrations:

All the mod_skypopen knowledge available to humankind is in that page.

T1 has 24 channels, so not much difference from 20 channels

mod_skypiax can work only on Linux or Windows, because it needs Skype
clients running on the same machine where FS is running, and there are
no Skype clients for *BSD or Solaris.

After reading all of the wiki page, you should do your tests, because
performances are very much dependant from the machine-kernel-os you
use. Skypopen is most tested and developed on CentOS and Ubuntu.

Also, if you plan an Enterprise deployment (I mean, many channels with
reliable operation), you must be prepared to invest a sizeable amount
of time to deeply understand all of the variables involved. Or you can
contact consulting at freeswitch.org for professional help.

Skype uses it's own codecs, it's not L16 on the net. L16 is between FS
and Skype client.
