This paper presents QoS control enhanced architecture for VoIP networks. In this architecture we use both the probe flow delay and average loss rate measurement systems. First we apply the probability-based EMBAC scheme on our delay system. Then we propose a new probability-based EMBAC with a severe congestion consideration scheme to improve the admission control scheme in both measurement systems. We compare the performance of the enhanced systems in terms of blocking probability under the same condition of achieving average packet loss rate no greater than the certain target by setting an appropriate admission threshold in each system under each scenario. In this study, it is shown through simulations that for the same target voice average loss rate, the enhanced systems proposed in this paper outperform the conventional schemes in handling the network resources. Then we will seek to prove that, for extra traffic loads within a busy period of time and with an optimal admission threshold chosen in advance, the enhanced systems can be a powerful and reliable EMBAC tool for VoIP networks in achieving high network performance with minimum blocking probability and minimum average loss rates. Finally it is shown that the enhanced systems have reasonable scalability.
