A VoIP based call has stringent QoS requirements with respect to delay, jitter, loss, MOS and R-Factor. Various QoS mechanisms implemented to satisfy these requirements must be adaptive under diverse network scenarios and applied in proper sequence, otherwise they may conflict with each other. The objective of this paper is to address the problem of adaptive QoS maintenance and sequential executionof available QoS implementation mechanisms with respect to VoIP under varying network conditions. In this paper, we generalize this problem as state-space problem and solve it. Firstly, we map the problem of QoS optimization into state-space domain and apply incremental heuristic search. We implement the proposed algorithm under various network and user scenarios in a VoIP test-bed for QoS enhancement. Then learning strategy is implemented for refinement of knowledge base to improve the performance of call quality over time. Finally, we discuss the advantages and uniqueness of our approach.
