Bandwidth for Hosted Dialer

Predictive Dialers dial more lines than there are agents, because most calls are not answered or land in voice mail. Predictive dialing thus uses much more bandwidth than manual dialing. The ratio of lines dialed to agents is called pacing ratio in dialer terminology. If pacing ratio is 2.5, and you have 10 agents, the dialer will dial 25 calls simultaneously. This is explained in the diagram.
If the dialer is in your premises, you must cater to bandwidth for 25 calls, whereas if it is hosted with us, you need to cater to just 10 calls.

    VoIP Requirements

      To use the dialer with VoIP (SIP), you need the following:
    • Softphone and head set for each agent. Use X-Lite®. Its free!
    • Hardphone for each agent as alternative for Softphone.
    • Hardphone = ata or channel bank + dial pad + headset.
    • Bandwidth of 30kbps/agent. This can be a leased line or broadband.
    • Dialer operator with past experience in administering dialers
    • Codec is speex on agent phone (X-Lite or similar)
    • The upload speed of broadband is to be considered; usually is 256-756kbps
    • Click here and here to measure your upload speed
    • Multiple broadband connections can be used in parallel
    • Bandwidth must not be shared with data downloads/uploads
