Abstract Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) provides a new telephony approach where the voice traffic passes over Internet Protocol shared traffic networks. VoIP is a significant application of the converged network principle. The research aim is to model VoIP over a hybrid Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) network and to identify an improved approach to applying the ITU-T Recommendation G.107 (E-Model) to understand possible Quality of Service (QoS) outcomes for the hybrid UMTS network. This research included Modeling the hybrid UMTS network and carrying out simulations of different traffic types transmitted over the network. The traffic characteristics were analysed and compared with results from the literature. VoIP traffic was modelled over the hybrid UMTS network and the VoIP traffic was generated to represent different loads on the network from light to medium and heavy VoIP traffic. The VoIP over hybrid UMTS network traffic results were characterized and used in conjunction with the E-Model to identify VoIP QoS outcomes. The E-Model technique was implemented and results achieved were compared with results for other network types highlighted in the literature. The research identified an approach that permits accurate Modeling of VoIP QoS over a hybrid UMTS network. Accurate results should allow network design to facilitate new approaches to achieving an optimal network implementation for VoIP.
