Voice over IP (VoIP) is a methodology for transmitting data, voice, video, messaging, and chat services over Internet Protocol. The quality of VoIP is heavily dependent on the type of hardware used for call manager. Hardware calibration is a mechanism for selecting a suitable hardware (processor) which can match the processing requirements of call manager. The aim of this paper is to propose a hardware selection model that can handle VoIP-based real-time applications by considering parameters like CPU utilization and RAM utilization. The proposed algorithm takes into consideration input arrival rate, type of applications (peer-to-peer or back-to-back), codec, and call holding time (CHT) corresponding to which a hardware recommendation is generated. The experiments are conducted for different types of hardware, and results show that the proposed model can help VoIP service providers to select the appropriate hardware.
