Trends in telecommunications show that customers require still more and more bandwidth. If the telecommunication operators want to be successful, they must invest a lot of money to their infrastructure and they must ensure required quality of service. The telecommunication operators would devote to development in this area. The article deals with quality of service in IP networks. Problems of quality of service can be solved through admission control methods based on measurements. These admission control methods take care of control of incoming traffic load. New flow can be accepted only if needed quality of service is ensured for it and without quality of service breach causing of already accepted flows. In the article were made description of simulations and results of simulations for Voice over IP, constant bit rate and video sources. Simulations were realized in Network simulator 2 environment. These simulations were evaluated on the base of some parameters such as: estimated bandwidth, utilization and loss rate.
