[Asterisk-Users] VoIP Dropouts

I have a problem with dropouts on our VoIP calls.  I have tried two 
different carriers, both with the similar results, although with one of 
them, the dropouts appear to be of shorter duration.  Both the frequency 
and duration of the dropouts vary with time of day, pointing an internet 
traffic density as the root cause. Our local network is all 100BaseT 
with a Gigabit backbone and Gigabit access to the public internet.

I am hoping that some of you might have some suggestions about the 
feasibility of RTP packet routing prioritization and its implementation, 
both on our local network and over the public internet, since 
traceroutes indicate significant delays from time to time at all points 
along the routing path.

This is the last hurdle to getting our phone service quality up to land 
line quality.
