Simulations on an IP-based real-time network
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The diversity of the communication networks is expanding. At the same time, the frontier between telecommunications and data communications becomes more and more fuzzy. It is already possible to have all kinds of data cohabit in some communication networks. As an example, speech is present in the Internet. This huge patchwork of networks using the IP protocol for the addressing of its hosts is one of the main application fields for IP-telephony, though it is still unsuitable because of its only best effort service. IP-telephony-products have thus to be adapted to these particular conditions and need to be tested accordingly.
We study here quality of service parameters in an IP-based real-time network simulated with an event-driven packet-level simulator in a large number of configurations. Our results serve in an IP-telephony project to provide miscellaneous realistic IP-telephony product tests. Phenomena characterizing the cohabitation of real-time and best effort traffic are also observed.
