VoIPmonitor QoS Assessment Tool

VoIPmonitor QoS Assessment Tool

VoIP is a beautiful thing but not if your network is the source of bad voice quality and you cannot prove the source of the problem.

Most of the time the problem is caused by newtork latency, lack of bandwidth, or packet loss.  The G.107 E Model is a great tool to assess a network and determine the MOS of phone call(s).

VoIPmonitor is a third party tool that is pretty easy to install and can easily generate a QoS report and it has a lot of other cool features.


Installing VoIPmonitor using the ScopServ package manager will automatically build a working installation fo VoIPmonitor.
To install VoIPmonitor you must obtain a 30 day trial license or purchase a Server license from VoIPmonitor.

Disclaimer: ScopServ does offer any support of any kind for VoIPmonitor.  Support requests must be made directly to VoIPmonitor and all support documentation is available from their website.  http://www.voipmonitor.org/
