View Full Version : quick summary of 6.0 changes?

2005-01-04, 13:35
We (the company I work for) regularly stream very high quality G711 encoded
voice over IP audio over wireless networks and don't have trouble. The real
challenge/opportunity is in building a very reliable RTCP based statusing
system into the delivery processes so that you can know exactly when you are
receiving network issues and correlate them to audio dropouts, etc.
