Actually I just ran the dollars-per-simultaneous-call numbers for
different models for some friends.  I'll append it.  Basically, if you run
g711, you're limited by the number of PRI channels on the box.  If you run
g729a, you're limited by the number of DSPs you can fit in the box.  The
numbers I ran were assuming g729a.
