In this paper, the performance VoIP is investigated for IPv4, IPv6to4 tunneling mechanism, for various VoIP codecs, namely the G.711.1, G.711.2, G.723.1, G.729.2 and G.729.3 codecs using Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Parameters studied are jitter, RTT (round trip time) and throughput. The results indicate that IPv6to4 tunneling generates extra RTT and jitter compared to the IPv4 networks. For the system studied, the highest RTT was at 0.8msec for G711.2 using Pv6to4 tunneling. For the system studied, the G.711.1 codec provides the highest bandwidth of 688Kbps while G.723.1 has the lowest bandwidth of 77.4 Kbps of all codecs studied.
