I'm working on a project that will require completion of up to 1m 
calls/hour into particular areas, so I'm learning a lot about the 
details of inter-carrier capacity and bandwidth available for voice.  A 
company like L3 has IP connectivity into most of the areas where it can 
terminate/originate calls, and the amount of that is based on 
expectations of call volume based on the type of area and population.  
Then there are the telephony trunks from the L3 IP gateways to the local 
carrier(s) which have a hard limit of concurrent calls.
