VoIP services are getting more and more popular day by day. In order to meet the users demand for such services irrespective of users location requires wide area wireless coverage .To this extent, wireless mesh networks have been considered as practical and inexpensive solution .In order to improve the performance of VoIP services, techniques like packet aggregation are done. This paper focuses on finding the effect of packet aggregation on various parameters like aggregation delay, end to end delay and MOS etc. Results obtained through simulations done on Qualnet Simulator concludes that packet aggregation is justified upto a certain extent only as after that most of the users get dissatisfied.
