Voice transmission over IEEE 802.11 networks: main issues and restrictions

This work analyzes the voice communication over IEEE 802.11

networks (VoWiFi). It empirically characterizes the transmission

problems of VoWiFi and describes scenarios where

it could be used over the existing network technologies. The

two major problems found were: the excessively long handoffs

and the occurrence of bursts. We conclude that is

feasible to use VoWiFi if, during a voice call, mobility is

kept low, signal strength is high enough and the network

capacity is not exceeded.
