DocHollidaylol
aydiosmiois that an accurate description?
Qwellpretty much
I mean, I know what it is any how it works
but I hadn't played with one before yesterday
aydiosmioMy company wants to use it to convert g723 to g729, have any tips?
Qwellyou'll have to use 2 channels
aydiosmioyeah, That's what I heard from your tech support
I was really surprised when I saw that spec
QwellThat's gonna sound horrible though, honestly
going from one highly compressed codec to another highly compressed codec
aydiosmioit works pretty well on our AS5300
Qwellreally?
aydiosmioyeah
Qwellhmm
aydiosmioit's nothing spectacular
but if we wanted spectacular we wouldn't be using g723
Qwelltrue
aydiosmiowe have a lot of dial-up customers, so we need to accomodate them
DocHollidayQwell, i was asked how much I charge today (hourly) and I told them i'd email them my price list :) problem is i dont know what to put.

DocHollidayaydiosmio, Canada (SMB service sector), Contract Work with a potential partnership
I am fairly advanced with Linux ~5 years, with about ~1yr+ with Asterisk
aydiosmioand you're doing 1-3 hrs per call/project?
DocHollidaymost of my experience is outside of VoIP
i'd like to list that as a starting point so to speak
aydiosmioso you have relatively little telecom experience?
DocHollidayi have a fair bit of telecom experience outside of VoIP
aydiosmiooh okay
DocHollidayusually i'd charge about ~90 an hour+
aydiosmiothat's good -- a lot of businesses will have POTS/Digital lines that would need to be taken care of
90 CAD?
DocHollidayyeah, i am not a beginner by any means.. i just have no idea what the billing rate is for VoIP work
