A framework and toolkit for the collection and analysis of QoS statistics for voice traffic in Next Generation Networks

14 Apr 2015

The multi-service, multi-architecture nature of NGNs is so complex that the management of services, in addition to networks, emerges as a research challenge. Despite QoS limitations, VoIP (as opposed to VoATM), dominates the Internet and enterprise markets, and is evolving to handle the carrier space. This paper presents a strategy that abstracts QoS away from both VoATM and VoIP in order to manage voice QoS in an NGN environment.
