Executive Summary

This paper evaluates the performance of Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) services that use different compression and decompression (CODEC) schemes, over a hybrid network that includes a Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) network segment. The paper focuses on the VoIP transmission end-to-end delay. The paper found that different CODECs provide very different results depending on the hybrid network. The research found that for VoIP services to operate over a hybrid network including a UMTS network segment, with an end-to-end delay comparable to that of circuit switched voice service, there is a requirement for careful comparison and design on choosing the CODEC scheme.
