Digitized voice becomes a payload for RTP (protocol we will study)
RTP is then encapsulated into UDP
And UDP into IP
So this becomes Voice over IP
At the and of this lecture we will again show how it all fits together
Connectionless unreliable datagram service on the top of IP
Adds port concept to identify peer application
Datagrams may be lost, reordered, or duplicated
Application responsible for reliability
Includes datagram loss, duplication, delay, out-of-sequence, multiplexing, loss of connectivity
Advantages over using IP directly
Can address individual applications via well-known ports
Minimal overhead, high performance
No setup/teardown, 1 datagram at a time
End-to-end reliable stream transport
Connection oriented - full duplex virtual circuit
Conceptually place call, two ends communicate to agree on details
After agreeing application notified of connection
During transfer, ends communicate continuously to verify data received correctly
When done, ends tear down the connection
Provides buffering and flow control
Takes care of lost packets, out of order, duplicates, long delays
Isolates application program from network details
Uses ports to identify individual connections and applications

1. Assume audio conferencing session with multiple participants using wideband speech (RTP streams). How would you:
a. Identify deferent voice streams that belong to the same session?
SSRC (Synchronization Source) in the RTP header uniquely identifies the source in the session.
b. Differentiate between RTP and RTCP packets that belong to the same session?
g. Determine the voice payload size if generic wideband PCM is used to digitize voice signal?
