Multipath Adaptive Packet Dispersion for Voice Applications

J. Faritha Banu and V. Ramachandran


Problem statement: The quality of Voice over IP applications is decided by the main factors like network capacity and technologies such as codec type, Packet Loss Concealment (PLC) and Forward Error Correction (FEC). Approach: In MPLS networks multiple Label Switched Paths (LSP) are established between MPLS ingress and egress nodes to enhance the network performance and QoS for subscribers. To enhance the Quality of Service, Multipath adaptive packet dispersion is proposed for voice applications in IP networks. Results: The trigger handler is proposed to check the balanced load in the system. If the network condition becomes unbalanced, the adaptive packet scheduler classifies the flows and routed to the best shortest paths with the help of proposed packet dispersion technique. Conclusion: The VoIP traffic is routed along the most adequate path that has enough resource to meet a given target QoS. Simulation results are reported to show the efficiency of the proposed technique for effective VOIP flows.
