VoIP refers to a method of transmission of voice data over IP networks rather than using traditional circuit PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Networks ).In this paper the researcher discusses about VoIP, about the design issues of RTP/RTCP (real-time transport/real time control protocol), how to measure packet losses at the sender and receiver side and also inter-arrival delay and delay variation (Jitter) , how the receiver and sender sends reports about the sender , how one-way end-to-end delay is measured, and explains the functionalities of static and dynamic jitter buffers and describe how Cisco routers are used to measure packet losses and round trip delays for IP-SLA (Service level agreement).
