I'm about to delve into the world of VOIP and this is really a step up in complexity compared to POT! Anyway, I like the ability to select an ISP on performance and not have to deal with land line issues at the same time.
I happen to run a FreeBSD is the main gateway on my network and I wonder if it's traffic shaping capabilities are useful when going VOIP. I.e. should I always leave 8kpbs availabe for VOIP? Do people use that? Is that recommended? Does it improve quality? And I mean especially responsiveness, I just hate those delays when talking to people.
And should it be 16kpbs instead of 8kpbs?
So like to hear from people doing that kind of thing and what their experiences are.
Thanks a lot,
