    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is predicted to be the replacement of the traditional PSTN telephone system. Quality of Service (QoS) of VoIP systems are more difficult to measure and implement compared to PSTN systems. The nature of QoS in VoIP networks is very variable and hence it is important to be able to measure the QoS offered by the system in real time with a low computational cost. So it is very important to measure the quality of service offered by VoIP networks. In this paper we discuss a new novel model to calculate the perceived voice quality using Random Neural Network (RNN). The RNN is an open Markovian queuing model, motivated by spiking behaviour of biological neurons that has been used for several applications. We used the feedforward architecture with different numbers of hidden neurons to test the stability of our model. We study the RNN model with 4, 5, and 6 hidden layers of neurons. Our model shows a high degree of accuracy.
