This paper considers the possibility of introducing packetized voice traffic into a packet-switched network. It is well known that the network must assure voice packets sufficient delay characteristics for conversational speech, i.e., low delay between speaker and listener and low delay jitter or variance. To reach these goals, simplified protocols and priority rules for voice handling are proposed and evaluated. A model of a packet switching node structure capable of handling both data and voice is derived for both analytical and simulation approaches. The use of low bit rate voice encoders is considered. The necessity of avoiding the transmission of silent intervals is discussed in relation to the behavior of packet voice receivers. Proposed strategies are compared by means of analytical tools and simulation experiments considering the presence of voice, interactive, and batch data packets.
