Advanced Signal Processing Seminar 2

Voice over IP

Prof. G. Kubin, Seminar Course 441.123, summer term 2001

Voice over IP

In the mid 90's, Internet telephony started as a means to bypass high costs for long-distance calls. Today's converged communication networks carry both voice and data with packet-switching protocols auch as the Internet Protocol (IP). Voice over IP will become the future standard paradigm for voice telephony where the high quality expectations of the user are met by advanced signal processing and protocol engineering methods.

Suggested Topics for Seminar Presentations

Packet-Switched Networks
Speech Coding
Network Signal Processing Algorithms
State-of-the-Art, Usability and Emerging Applications


The seminar is organized by the newly established Signal Processing and Speech Communication Laboratory at the Institute for Communications and Wave Propagation of TU Graz. Students will study a selected topic, prepare a WWW presentation, and present it in class during a 45 minute discussion session. Work in small groups of 2 or 3 students is strongly encouraged. Parts of the seminar are coordinated with the Speech Signal Processing Group at KTH Stockholm such that international student teams may engage in remote collaboration on selected topics. The working language will be English.

The first meetingwill be held in lecture hall i11 at TU Graz, Inffeldgasse 16, on Friday, March 9, 2001 at 9:00 a.m. This will be used to assign groups and topics, and to coordinate the seminar schedule.
