Abstract: (The network related functions (Sendto, and Receivefrom) in VoIPv6, are needed to obtain the communication socket in both UDP, and TCP before the communication can take place between the sending and receiving ends. The intent of testing and evaluating the network related functions in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIPv6) in this research work is not to provide a comprehensive benchmark, but rather to test how well TCP (Transmission Control Protocol), and UDP (User Datagram Protocol) perform in sending and receiving VoIPv6 traffic and bulk data transfer, Part of this, due to the cumulative nature of VoIPv6 performance, can be achieved by testing the network related functions which are the Sendto and Receivefrom socket calls. This is because the sending concept in UDP IPv6 is based on the best effort sending of packets not a guaranteed sending as in TCP IPv6. In this context, performance enhancement techniques are needed to be applied in VoIPv6 due to the fact that there is no dedicated line between the sending and receiving ends. This is actually the putty and the drawback at the same time of VoIP. This is also the reason for IPv6 to take longer time yet to reach its full maturity (Recommendation G.711 of the ITU expectation is by the year 2050) when fully deploying real time applications due to their time sensitivity.
