Network delay, packet loss and network delay variability (jitter) are important factors that impact on perceived voice quality in VoIP networks. An adaptive playout buffer is used in a VoIP terminal to overcome jitter. Such a buffer-control must operate a trade-off between the buffer-induced delay and any additional packet loss rate. In this paper, a Garch-based adaptive playout algorithm is proposed which is capable of operating in both inter-talk-spurt and intra-talk-spurt modes. The proposed new model is based on a Garch model approach; an ARMA model is used to model changes in the mean and the variance.
