GSM/GPRS networks have been designed to carry both voice and data traffic. Our aims are to study the behaviour of the GPRS mechanisms (RLC/MAC layer and radio resource scheduler) when the application layer carries packetized voice, and determine if the quality of service provided by the network is suitable for the VoIP service. The paper includes a discussion about the voice source model, an analysis of the effects in capacity of a GPRS carrier when feed with VoIP packets, measurements of statistical parameters of the voice traffic stream and a discussion of the influence in the quality of the service.
