Perceived Quality of VoIP addresses speech quality of VoIP networks, whilst addressing the implications for the design of VoIP networks and systems. The book bridges the gap between the technical network-world and the (psychoacoustic) world of quality perception. Starting from the network designer's point of view, the different characteristics of the network are addressed, and then linked to features perceived by users. Since quality can be viewed as the result of a comparison of perceived features with desired features, not only the perception of features determines quality, but also the features a user desires of a system. The book addresses both of these aspects.
