TRAFFIC TRUNK PARAMETERS FOR VOICE TRANSPORT OVER MPLS

A. Estepa, R. Estepa, J. Vozmediano

Abstract

Access nodes in NGN are likely to transport voice traffic using MPLS Traffic Trunks. The traffic parameters describing a Traffic Trunk are basic to calculate the network resources to be allocated along the nodes belonging to its corresponding Label-Switched-Path (LSP). This paper provides an analytical model to estimate the lower limit of the bandwidth that needs to be allocated to a TT loaded with a heterogeneous set of voice connections. Our model considers the effect of the Silence Insertion Descriptor (SID) frames that a number of VoIP codecs currently use. Additionally, two transport schemes are considered: VoIP and VoMPLS. The results, experimentally validated, quantify the benefits of VoMPLS over VoIP.
