Early Estimation of Voice over IPQuality
2003 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Users of Voice over IP (VoIP) applications are sensitive to the quality of an ongoing call. We hypothesize that the quality of a VoIP session can be estimated from the first few seconds of the session and this can be generalized to other VoIP calls. Our approach is an in-band probing mechanism and does not require any external monitoring schemes or network support. We show by post processing VoIP data from globally distributed sites that it is possible to determine the quality after an initial number of seconds. One application is admission control, where it would be possible to reject poor quality calls before they are fully established.
