VoIP call quality falls - Survey

Discussion in 'UK VOIP' started by KnowingAbout.com, Jul 27, 2006.

  1. VoIP call quality has taken a nosedive over the last 18 months, with
    nearly 20 percent of VoIP callers experiencing unacceptable voice
    quality, according to a survey done by Brix Networks.
    The results come from Brix Networks' TestYourVoIP.com site, a free
    VoIP quality-testing portal. Brix claims that nearly one million VoIP
    phone tests have been conducted at the site since its March, 2004
    launch.

    Brix claims that from late 2004 through mid-2006, the tests done at the
    site have shown a consistent decrease in overall voice quality as
    calculated via the Mean Opinion Score (MOS). MOS is an a measurement of
    conversational voice quality that rates calls on a scale from one (bad)
    to five (excellent). Test calls with a MOS of 3.6 or better are usually
    regarded as being satisfactory, and those below it as unsatisfactory.
    Only 81 percent of VoIP calls tested on the site were rated at 3.6 or
    better, the company says.

    How accurate are the results? Without a third party to analyze them,
    it's difficult to know. Brix, though, sells IP and VoIP testing
    solutions, and the company does have a vested interest in touting any
    results that show poor VoIP quality. On the other hand, anyone who has
    made a VoIP call knows only too well the sometimes erratic nature of
    call quality.
