Deploying VoIP in Existing IP Networks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Many network managers find it attractive and cost effective to merge and unify voice and data networks. A unified network is easier to run, manage, and maintain. However, the majority of today’s existing data networks is Ethernet-based and use Internet Protocols (IP). Such networks are best-effort networks in that they were not designed to support real-time applications such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). VoIP requires timely packet delivery with low latency, jitter, packet loss, and sufficient bandwidth. To achieve this, efficient deployment of VoIP must ensure that these real-time traffic requirements can be guaranteed over new or existing IP networks.
