ROHC and Aggregated VoIP Over Fixed WiMAX: An Empirical Evaluation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

WiMAX has been at the center of attention in wireless communications during the last years. Nonetheless, very few testbed or field trial measurement accounts have been reported in the peer-reviewed literature. This gap is filled by exploring scenarios where fixed WiMAX is employed for VolP traffic. VolP packets typically exhibit large header overheads and small total packet sizes. The actual codec payload per packet is very small compared to the total length of headers appended to each voice frame. RObust Header Compression (ROHC) can significantly decrease header size by capitalizing on static or rarely changing header fields. Aggregating multiple voice frames into one packet is another attractive and effective way to increase application goodput and overall bandwidth utilization.
