Re: VoIP QOS best practices

  • From: Jared Mauch

You're specifically talking about the g728a codec?

I typically have been using g711ulaw which is a 64k vs the g728a codec that is 8k.

Aside from that, Bill is quite correct here. There's little need for QoS other than at the edge of ones network to insure that your circuit is not full of other streaming media applications that put your tcp performance in the toilet.

My main concern is that some of the sites that will be tied with
VoIP have only T-1 data connectivity, and I don't want a surge in
traffic to degrade the voice quality, or cause disconnections or
what-have-you.  People are more accustomed to data networks going
down; voice networks going down will make people shout.
It works fine on 64k connections, okay on many 9600bps connections. T1 is
way more than is necessary.
