Yet it would seem there many companies are afraid to move to a VoIP system. They are unsure about call quality, fearful if their network has enough bandwidth to support transporting voice packets in a timely fashion.
Today’s networks carry a variety of traffic from data (email, texting, file download, etc.) to video (including streaming video, gaming, and video conferencing). If voice packets are among the mix, how do we guarantee good voice quality?
The answer is two-fold. The first important step is to assess the bandwidth utilization of the network and the impact added packets might create. If the network is already at saturation, then added voice packets is not smart.
However, if the network does have the bandwidth to support carrying voice packets, then the next step is ensuring proper Quality of Service.
Quality of Service or (QoS) is an important aspect in today’s multi-media communications. QoS is a means of measuring and providing priority for certain types of packets being sent across the network. If your network has the bandwidth to support voice then giving voice packets the highest priority will insure they are sent reliably and expediently even if there is minor congestion in the network.
