There is an increasing reliance on wireless computer networks for communicating various types of time sensitive applications such as voice over internet protocol (VoIP). Quality of service (QoS) can play an important role in wireless computer networks as it can facilitate evaluation of their performance and can provide mechanisms to improve their operation. In this study probabilistic neural network (PNN) and Bayesian classification were developed to process delay, jitter and percentage packet loss ratio for VoIP traffic. Both methods successfully categorized the transmission of VoIP packets into low, medium and high QoS categories but overall the Bayesian approach performed more accurately than PNN. By accurately determining the network's QoS, an improved understanding of its performance is obtained.
