  • The book describes a simple voice protocol for use on a packet-switching local network. This protocol is used in an experimental study of the feasibility of using a 3 Mbps experimental Ethernet network for packet-voice communications. The effect of various parameters on performance is examined. The study shows that with appropriately chosen parameters the experimental Ethernet is capable of supporting about 40 simultaneous 64-Kbps two-way voice conversations with acceptable quality. This corresponds to a utilization of 95% of the network capacity.
