These days a massive deployment of VoIP is taking place over IP networks. VoIP deployment is a challenging task for network researchers and engineers. This paper presents a detailed simulation approach for deploying VoIP successfully. The simulation uses the OPNET network simulator. Recently OPNET has gained a considerable popularity in both academia and industry, but there is no formal or known approach or methodology in how OPNET can be used to assess the support and readiness of an existing network in deploying VoIP.
