Voice Transmission Enhancing Model on Wireless Mesh Networks
This paper initially shows ROHC and packet aggregation significantly improve the number of successful voice calls. However, the improvement does not include processor's processing overhead, which is identified by measuring ROHC processing time from Intel Pentium 4 and RouterBOARD, and applying the results into NS-2 simulations. Simulation results indicate the number of successful voice calls is seriously affected by the processing overhead. For the solution of the processing limitation, the authors propose a hardware model of the two algorithms and numerically analyze the model.
