Influence of the QoS Measures for VoIP Traffic in a Congested Network

Robert Luca, Petrica Ciotirnae, Florin Popescu


The paper revolves around the subject regarding quality of service (QoS) n a telecommunication network. The chosen scenario is based on the transmission of ata and voice packets using a WAN connection, which has a limited bandwidth and mphasize the need of implementing QoS mechanisms in order to fulfill the quality equirements of the traffic, especially for VoIP. This topology will outline the impact nd importance of the QoS implementation, illustrated by the desired quality resulted hrough VoIP traffic simultaneously with maintaining the data conectivity using a ower bandwidth for applications which require a smaller amount of QoS properties, uch as FTP.
