The Cost-quality Based Analysis of Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in Dubai
Telecom in developing countries faces a distinct challenge as compared to developed countries. The technology of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) would be a key enabler for growth and service delivery in the former case. VoIP, though reported not widely accepted in developed countries, would be acceptable in developing countries owing to its affordable quality and lower costs. This hypothesis willbe tested through a user survey to be conducted in Dubai. Five different attributes of voice quality, telephone billing, VAS, reliability and responsiveness would be analysed for testing the hypothesis, along with a few case studies from other developing countries.
The advantages of reduced cost and bandwidth savings of carrying voice over packet networks are associated with some quality of service (QoS) issues that are unique to packet networks such as latency, jitter, bandwidth, packet loss and security. These QoS issues need to be carefully considered while deploying the VoIP based network
