Abstract [en]

In todays GSM network more and more interfaces are run over IP instead of classic synchronized networks. This rises new issues to be solved, for example handling of jitter that use of IP networks introduces. The jitter can be handled by a jitter buffer which ensures that the packets are forwarded in evenly spaced intervals.

In GSM, data is requested a certain time in advance before delivery to a cellphone. This "time in advance" needs to be adjusted according to the delay of the channel. For an IP network this delay varies (jitter), which means that it would be beneficial to have an algorithm which continuously adjusts how long in advance the packets should be requested. The adjustment is made according to current channel delay and jitter size.

In this thesis work a model of a general IP network has been developed and isthen used for development of two algorithms for jitter buffer handling. Once the algorithms have been developed they are evaluated and compared to each other and previous solutions to the problem. One of the algorithms is new and the other is an already existing algorithm that has been extended.

The simplified conclusion is that the behaviors of both algorithms are very similar. They mainly have small packet loss but sometimes the packets are requested earlier than needed and therefore are kept in the buffer a bit longer than necessary. When comparing the two developed algorithms with previous solutions it is visible that they improve the buffer handling a great deal.
