Performance Comparison of VoIP Codecs on Multiple Operating Systems using IPv4 and IPv6

Hira Sathu and Mohib A. Shah

Abstract—In this paper, the performance of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) for five different codecs, using IPv4 and IPv6 is established. The cod ecs tested were G.711.1, G.711.2, G.723.1, G.729.2 and the G.729.3 codec. The operating systems used were; Windows XP, Windows Vista and the Windows 7. Parameters considered for these performance tests were RTT (round trip time), jitter, and throughput. The results arrived at aid a user organisation of VoIP with the preferred choice of the IP version stack to be used for a given operating system. Likewise, where a user is constrained to adopt a given IP stack, the codec that should be used over different Windows OSs available on the systems is also identifiable.

Index Terms—VoIP, performance analysis, codec, IPv4, IPv6, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
