On the receiver side of mobile VoIP, when a packet arrives at the receiver, the receiver strips the packet information and places the packet in the jitter buffer.
Generally, the channel zap time consists of command processing time, network delay, STB jitter buffer delay, and video decoding delay [4].

Sometimes endpoints use a jitter buffer to help packets arrive in the right order.
Proper timing and synchronization eliminates periodic jitter buffer slips associated with asynchronous connections or nodes in the network.
This is where the electrical signal is put through a jitter buffer and the signal timing is re-aligned.
