-This article intends to characterize the traffic flows of SIP/ RTP and IAX protocols in the environment of IP Telephony as standard of communication in their local networks. Our study allowed us to conclude that the packages of voice have a significant impact on the amount of data injected in LANs, which makes of fundamental importance the development of tools to evaluate them.
