VoIPmonitor QoS assessment tool now available for installation on ScopTEL

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).  ScopServ has published a must read guide on QoS at https://blog.scopserv.com/2012/07/scopserv-advanced-training-on-qos-and-vlans/

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.
