RE: VoIP QOS best practices

Also note that those sizes are for the voice part of the payload only....It does not take into account any payload/packet overhead...

We use G.711 quite a bit on our network, and are traffic flows are right around 80k...

G.711 gives you the 64kbps quality you get on a channel in a PRI line.
No compression is performed.

G.729 is a well accepted codec that performs compression, and with ip
packet overhead, uses about 16 to 24 kbps (can't remember which).  It
gives voice quality very close to G.711.

G.723 has a noticeable voice quality change, and is in the 6 to 8 kbps
range.

The optimal is G.729 for quality vs bandwidth issues.

There are some other considerations involved but these are the main
ones.
