Anecdotally, when ConfBridge was first rewritten in Asterisk 10, some
performance comparisons with MeetMe were performed. In the best case,
on a particular system with conference user usage patterns, we saw
MeetMe hit a limit at around 60 channels, and ConfBridge reach over
240 channels. Worst case for ConfBridge was around 140 channels.

Note that the ConfBridge sample rate, mixing interval, and other
parameters can greatly affect how far it scales out.
