Part 1 of this book describes those aspects of packet voice that are independent of the transport technology to be used. The general principles described here cover the business reasons behind the deployment of packet voice; the quality of service requirements for different types of voice and how they can be provided by network-based and customer-based procedures; and the distribution of voice functionality among many servers and gateways.
