Experimental Characterization of VoIP Traffic Over IEEE 802.11 Wireless LANs

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology has become a potential alternative to and also a supplement of the traditional telephony systems over the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), providing a versatile, flexible and cost-effective solution to speech communications. VoIP allows the transmission of voice signals from one party to another one digitally, i.e., the analog voice signal is coded into small packets of digital data and sent over a network. The traditional telephone network, PSTN, uses the circuit switching technique, in which the network establishes a dedicated end-to-end connection between two hosts.
