The Avaya Voice Priority Processor (AVPP) is an Ethernet LAN
appliance that works with access points to provide Quality of
Service (QoS) on the wireless LAN. All packets to and from the
wireless telephones pass through the AVPP and are encapsulated for
prioritization as they are routed to and from IP Office. AVPP is
fully compliant with the IEEE 802.11a/b/g standards.
AVPP is required for QoS because the current IEEE 802.11a/b/g
wireless LAN standards provide only limited mechanism for
differentiating audio packets from data packets. It also delivers
quality of service by limiting the number of telephones that are
connected to one access point in order to avoid quality problems.
In addition AVPP ensures that the phone can run in energy-efficient
mode when not in use.
