The steps and principles involved in originating VoIP telephone calls are similar to traditional digital telephony and involve signaling, channel setup, digitization of the analog voice signals, and encoding. Instead of being transmitted over a circuit-switched network , the digital information is packetized and transmission occurs as IP packets over a packet-switched network. They transport media streams using special media delivery protocols that encode audio and video with audio codecs and video codecs. Various codecs exist that optimize the media stream based on application requirements and network bandwidth; some implementations rely on narrowband and compressed speech , while others support high-fidelity stereo codecs.
Early providers of voice-over-IP services offered business models and technical solutions that mirrored the architecture of the legacy telephone network. Second-generation providers, such as Skype , built closed networks for private user bases, offering the benefit of free calls and convenience while potentially charging for access to other communication networks, such as the PSTN. This limited the freedom of users to mix-and-match third-party hardware and software.
Power Control Schemes in TDMA and Spread Spectrum
Third-generation providers, such as Google Talk , adopted the concept of federated VoIP —which is a departure from the architecture of the legacy networks. Voice over IP has been implemented in various ways using both proprietary protocols and protocols based on open standards. These protocols can be used by a VoIP phone , special-purpose software, a mobile application or integrated into a web page.
VoIP protocols include:. Mass-market VoIP services use existing broadband Internet access , by which subscribers place and receive telephone calls in much the same manner as they would via the public switched telephone network PSTN. Full-service VoIP phone companies provide inbound and outbound service with direct inbound dialing.
Many offer unlimited domestic calling and sometimes international calls for a flat monthly subscription fee. Phone calls between subscribers of the same provider are usually free when flat-fee service is not available. This can be implemented in several ways:. It is increasingly common for telecommunications providers to use VoIP telephony over dedicated and public IP networks as a backhaul to connect switching centers and to interconnect with other telephony network providers; this is often referred to as IP backhaul.
Smartphones may have SIP clients built into the firmware or available as an application download. Because of the bandwidth efficiency and low costs that VoIP technology can provide, businesses are migrating from traditional copper-wire telephone systems to VoIP systems to reduce their monthly phone costs. VoIP allows both voice and data communications to be run over a single network, which can significantly reduce infrastructure costs. VoIP switches may run on commodity hardware, such as personal computers.
Rather than closed architectures, these devices rely on standard interfaces. Dual-mode phones enable users to continue their conversations as they move between an outside cellular service and an internal Wi-Fi network, so that it is no longer necessary to carry both a desktop phone and a cell phone. Maintenance becomes simpler as there are fewer devices to oversee. VoIP solutions aimed at businesses have evolved into unified communications services that treat all communications—phone calls, faxes, voice mail, e-mail, web conferences, and more—as discrete units that can all be delivered via any means and to any handset, including cellphones.
Two kinds of service providers are operating in this space: one set is focused on VoIP for medium to large enterprises, while another is targeting the small-to-medium business SMB market. Skype , which originally marketed itself as a service among friends, has begun to cater to businesses, providing free-of-charge connections between any users on the Skype network and connecting to and from ordinary PSTN telephones for a charge.
Communication on the IP network is perceived as less reliable in contrast to the circuit-switched public telephone network because it does not provide a network-based mechanism to ensure that data packets are not lost, and are delivered in sequential order. It is a best-effort network without fundamental Quality of Service QoS guarantees. Voice, and all other data, travels in packets over IP networks with fixed maximum capacity.
Fundamentals of Communications Access Technologies: FDMA, TDMA, CDMA, OFDMA, AND SDMA
This system may be more prone to data loss in the presence of congestion [a] than traditional circuit switched systems; a circuit switched system of insufficient capacity will refuse new connections while carrying the remainder without impairment, while the quality of real-time data such as telephone conversations on packet-switched networks degrades dramatically. By default, network routers handle traffic on a first-come, first-served basis.
Fixed delays cannot be controlled as they are caused by the physical distance the packets travel. Latency can be minimized by marking voice packets as being delay-sensitive with QoS methods such as DiffServ. Network routers on high volume traffic links may introduce latency that exceeds permissible thresholds for VoIP. Excessive load on a link can cause congestion and associated queueing delays and packet loss. This signals a transport protocol like TCP to reduce its transmission rate to alleviate the congestion.
VoIP endpoints usually have to wait for completion of transmission of previous packets before new data may be sent. Although it is possible to preempt abort a less important packet in mid-transmission, this is not commonly done, especially on high-speed links where transmission times are short even for maximum-sized packets.
But since every packet must contain protocol headers, this increases relative header overhead on every link traversed. The receiver must resequence IP packets that arrive out of order and recover gracefully when packets arrive too late or not at all. Packet delay variation results from changes in queuing delay along a given network path due to competition from other users for the same transmission links.
VoIP receivers accommodate this variation by storing incoming packets briefly in a playout buffer , deliberately increasing latency to improve the chance that each packet will be on hand when it is time for the voice engine to play it. The added delay is thus a compromise between excessive latency and excessive dropout , i. Although jitter is a random variable, it is the sum of several other random variables which are at least somewhat independent: the individual queuing delays of the routers along the Internet path in question.
Motivated by the central limit theorem , jitter can be modeled as a gaussian random variable. This suggests continually estimating the mean delay and its standard deviation and setting the playout delay so that only packets delayed more than several standard deviations above the mean will arrive too late to be useful. In practice, the variance in latency of many Internet paths is dominated by a small number often one of relatively slow and congested bottleneck links.
Most Internet backbone links are now so fast e. A number of protocols have been defined to support the reporting of quality of service QoS and quality of experience QoE for VoIP calls. RFC VoIP metrics reports are intended to support real time feedback related to QoS problems, the exchange of information between the endpoints for improved call quality calculation and a variety of other applications.
This is generally down to the poor access to superfast broadband in rural country areas. With the release of 4G data, there is a potential for corporate users based outside of populated areas to switch their internet connection to 4G data, which is comparatively as fast as a regular superfast broadband connection. This greatly enhances the overall quality and user experience of a VoIP system in these areas. A virtual circuit identifier VCI is part of the 5-byte header on every ATM cell, so the transmitter can multiplex the active virtual circuits VCs in any arbitrary order. Cells from the same VC are always sent sequentially.
Every Ethernet frame must be completely transmitted before another can begin. If a second VC were established, given high priority and reserved for VoIP, then a low priority data packet could be suspended in mid-transmission and a VoIP packet sent right away on the high priority VC. Then the link would pick up the low priority VC where it left off.
Because ATM links are multiplexed on a cell-by-cell basis, a high priority packet would have to wait at most 53 byte times to begin transmission. There would be no need to reduce the interface MTU and accept the resulting increase in higher layer protocol overhead, and no need to abort a low priority packet and resend it later.
ATM's potential for latency reduction is greatest on slow links, because worst-case latency decreases with increasing link speed. A number of protocols that deal with the data link layer and physical layer include quality-of-service mechanisms that can be used to ensure that applications like VoIP work well even in congested scenarios.
Some examples include:. The quality of voice transmission is characterized by several metrics that may be monitored by network elements, by the user agent hardware or software. Such metrics include network packet loss , packet jitter , packet latency delay , post-dial delay, and echo.

The metrics are determined by VoIP performance testing and monitoring. A VoIP media gateway controller aka Class 5 Softswitch works in cooperation with a media gateway aka IP Business Gateway and connects the digital media stream, so as to complete creating the path for voice as well as data media.
The Ethernet interfaces are also included in the modern systems, which are specially designed to link calls that are passed via the VoIP. Most VoIP implementations support E. Often VoIP implementations employ methods of translating non-E. Echo can also be an issue for PSTN integration. Typically, it is the responsibility of the former carrier to "map" the old number to the undisclosed number assigned by the new carrier.
This is achieved by maintaining a database of numbers. A dialed number is initially received by the original carrier and quickly rerouted to the new carrier. Multiple porting references must be maintained even if the subscriber returns to the original carrier. The FCC mandates carrier compliance with these consumer-protection stipulations.
A voice call originating in the VoIP environment also faces challenges to reach its destination if the number is routed to a mobile phone number on a traditional mobile carrier. VoIP has been identified in the past as a Least Cost Routing LCR system, which is based on checking the destination of each telephone call as it is made, and then sending the call via the network that will cost the customer the least.
This rating is subject to some debate given the complexity of call routing created by number portability. With GSM number portability now in place, LCR providers can no longer rely on using the network root prefix to determine how to route a call. Instead, they must now determine the actual network of every number before routing the call. In countries without a central database, like the UK, it might be necessary to query the GSM network about which home network a mobile phone number belongs to.
As the popularity of VoIP increases in the enterprise markets because of least cost routing options, it needs to provide a certain level of reliability when handling calls. MNP checks are important to assure that this quality of service is met. Handling MNP lookups before routing a call provides some assurance that the voice call will actually work. A telephone connected to a land line has a direct relationship between a telephone number and a physical location, which is maintained by the telephone company and available to emergency responders via the national emergency response service centers in form of emergency subscriber lists.
When an emergency call is received by a center the location is automatically determined from its databases and displayed on the operator console. In IP telephony, no such direct link between location and communications end point exists. Appendix B: Zinc Function Excitation. Author Index. Includes bibliographical references p.

In general wavelet transformation can be concerned as an act of a certain basic filter, whose impulse response is defined by maternal wavelet. So, a complete wavelet decomposition of an input signal can be represented as a set of filtering processed followed by operation of decimation Fig.
Input signal is passed through low-pass LP and high-pass HP filters, which divide signal spectral band into two parts. To perform complete wavelet decomposition the input data length should be a power of two: 2 n , where n is a positive integer value. This is explained by the transformation method which divides input signal on two equal parts low-frequency and high-frequency at every decomposition step. Another element introduced in wavelet filters is decimation.
The decimation operation passes on output every second value taken from input, as far as every second value holds redundant information. Since an image is a two-dimensional signal, each step of wavelet decomposition is implemented in two stages: at first image rows are treated, then image columns or vice versa. This row can be represented as an array S 3262. Having this the simplest Haar wavelet transformation can be accomplished by meaning of two neighbor pixels colors low-pass filter and numerical differentiation high-pass filter.
Obviously, having A and D arrays one can easily reconstruct the initial signal as shown in figure 3 , where the numerical values of A and D are represented by pixels brightness. Complete image decomposition can be implemented in several steps Fig.
First of all image rows decomposition is implemented Fig. After this step passed, the image approximation appears on the left side, while the image detailing — on the right one. A similar treatment is for the image columns Fig. After these two steps, the image approximation appears in the upper-left corner, upper-right corner stands for differential image in the line of X, bottom-left corner is for differential image in the line of Y, and finally, bottom-right corner consists of differential image in the line of X and Y. One can notice that image detailing coefficients take zero or near-zero values zero values are represented by grey color with a value of The further decomposition is performed on the image approximation, which is the initial image two-times reduced copy.
The result of the second decomposition step is represented in Fig. The decomposition process can be carried out up to the single pixel in the upper-left corner of the image. Obviously, the brightness of this pixel will represent the mean brightness of the whole initial image.
As one can notice, wavelet based compression provides better image quality for the same compression ratio areas 1 and 2. This allows obtaining higher compression ratios for quality image reconstruction. However when the compression ratio is too high, wavelet based compression algorithms can produce ripple artifacts, especially for inhomogeneous regions of the image.
Along with image compression wavelets can be efficiently used for audio data compression. In this case coder deals with one-dimensional input data set or several data sets for multi-channel audio. Analog Devices company produces ADV commercial chip which provides real-time video compression using wavelet transformation with up to compression ratio for VHS quality video [ 6 ].
Thus, wavelet based compression progress are expected to be sufficient enough to keep video data rate at the level of 1. Multiprogramme stream formed by the broadcasting module and multimedia data formed in the module of multimedia after multiplexing according to global broadcasting TV model are transferred on the monochannel. Which exits are connected to multipurpose user's installations or branch off in other directions using existing environments of transfers for delivery of the corresponding information to remote users.
It is important to note combination of existing digital television and broadcasting systems with a view of coverage difficult access region and territories with small number of inhabitants. Thus construction of the reverse channel is necessary. In TV systems and broadcasting with integration telecommunication services takes place, that separate groups or individual users wish to receive the information protected from other users, such VIS systems with the conditional limited access are called.

In such systems various cryptography algorithms are used: symmetric and asymmetric. The most popular asymmetric algorithms is RSA. The latter authors published their work in , and the algorithm appropriately came to be known as RSA. Nowadays for observation of artificial celestial bodies ACB broad application as received by photo-television methods, which allows to essentially increase penetrating ability of a telescope, to intensify a visible brightness of stars and object, to increase their contrast concerning a hum noise of the sky [ 7 , 8 ].

Visual observation of a sidereal field and object on the monitor of VCD with simultaneous processing on PC, counting of brightness and coordinates immediately on scales of the control panel. Advantage of the second principle is the high efficiency of obtaining the image with an evaluation of quality and possibilities of reaching the necessary accuracy of installation of brightness and coordinates of the images at the expense of their direct counting without operations of photography, chemical processing of photos and writing them in the PC for the consequent digital processing.
The creation of a television telescope, i. It allows not only fast and precisely to determine brightness and coordinates of satellites in relation to rather reference stars, but also expands functionality of TV complexes. Most important for modern TVIMS is the capability of adaptation of their parameters depending on change of an astroclimate or other factors both fulfillment of diverse functions and problems. In developed and researched TVMIS the multifunctionality is provided at their designing and technological fulfillment. In particular, are used in transmitting cameras CCD matrix actually being multifunctional devices, working on various algorithms depending on pilot signals, modern PC for processing of videosignal and control, and also multifunctional RAM of volume in some television frames Mb.

In case of removal of a chamber part on rather large distance, the transmission of the video information and control commands is expedient for executing on FOLC. Similar MITVS executed on the basis of a television telescope and the PC can decide many problems faster and more effective than person.
