Abstract: Long Term Evolution (LTE) is the last step towards the 4th generation of cellular networks. This revolution is necessitated by the unceasing increase in demand for high speed connection on LTE networks. This paper focuses on the performance evaluation of End-to-End delay under variable mobility speed for VoIP (Voice over IP) in the LTE network. In the course of E2E performance evaluation, realizing simulation approach three scenarios have been modeled using OPNET 16.0. The first one is the baseline network while among other two, one consists of VoIP traffic solely and the other consists of FTP along with VoIP. E2E delay has been measured for both scenarios in various cases under the varying mobility speed of the node. Simulation results have been studied and presented in terms of comparative performance analysis of the three network scenarios. In light of the result analysis, the performance quality of a VoIP network (with and without the presence of additional network traffic) in LTE has been determined and discussed. The simulation results for baseline VoIP network (non-congested) congested VoIP network and congested VoIP with FTP network show that as the speed of node is gradually increased, E2E delay slightly increases.
