Name Type Description
SimpleVoipSender simple module

Implements a simple VoIP source. It is a constant bitrate source, with talkspurt support added. Packets do not contain actual voice data. Connection setup/teardown is not modelled. The peer must be a SimpleVoipReceiver.

// Implements a simple VoIP source. It is a constant bitrate source, with 
// talkspurt support added. Packets do not contain actual voice data.
// Connection setup/teardown is not modelled. The peer must be a 
// SimpleVoipReceiver.
//
// The source alternates between two states: talk and silence. The length
// the module spends in each state are controlled by the talkspurtDuration and
// silenceDuration parameters. In talk state, the module acts as a CBR source,
// and sends packets of size talkPacketSize every packetizationInterval seconds
// to the destination over UDP. Silence is implicit: in silence state, no packets
// are sent, and there is no explicit signalling of silence either. 
//
// Packets are of type SimpleVoipPacket. In addition to packet ID and timestamp,
// packets also contain a talkspurt ID and the total number of packets in the 
// talkspurt to facilitate statistics at the receiver side. (It allows the receiver
// to detect loss of packets at the end of a talkspurt; a full talkspurt can still
// be lost unnoticed.)
// 
// The destination address/port, the local port, start and stop times can be
// set via parameters.
