• Additional Information is available on the Mediatrix Wiki
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.
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
How to install VoIPmonitor on ScopTEL (assuming your software maintenance is active):
From Linux console type:
Login to the ScopTEL GUI and edit MySQL Server and check Enable TCP/IP listening ? [x]
Log Out of the ScopTEL GUI
From Linux console type:
service mysqld restart
scopserv_yum install voipmonitor
service scopserv restart
Login to your account at http://www.voipmonitor.org and copy your license data to clipboard
Login to the ScopTEL GUI
Click on the VoIPmonitor Tools menu in the ScopTEL GUI and paste your key.
After clicking on ‘Recheck’ your installation should be finished
But you will probably see this error when you click on Installation is Finished.
Click OK and ignore the error. A ScopTEL crond task will automatically execute this command.
From Linux console type:
service voipmonitor start
Now you can click on Tools>VoIPmonitor in the ScopTEL GUI and start using VoIPmonitor.
You may need to edit the network interface(s) that VoIPmonitor is configured to monitor.
If you edit and save this configuration you must…
From Linux console type:
service voipmonitor restart
Then open the ScopTEL GUI and go to Tools>VoIPmonitor to see VoIPmonitor options and reports.
Sometimes it is necessary to set bridge interfaces on ScopTEL to support multiple devices on the same subnet.
After you install the necessary Network Interface Cards follow this simple tutorial.
Update the ScopTEL server to network package 126.96.36.199 which supports the new network bridging feature
scopserv_yum update scopserv-network -y
NOTE: You can also use the package manager to update this package
Install the bridge-utils package if not already installed (check with ‘rpm -qa bridge-utils’)
scopserv_yum install bridge-utils -y
Edit your Network Configuration and create one new interface to act as your first bridge interface like br0 and assign a static IP address to this interface for management.
Create another network interface or use existing eth<interface> and set its type to BRIDGE, then make sure the ‘Bridge Interface’ text matches the text you entered on the matching bridge interface br0. This example uses eth0 as the WAN interface (which matches the br0 configuration)
Now you have to edit or create an additional hardware interface in order to bridge it with eth0. In this example the hardware interface will be eth1 and it will also be bridged with br0
Save and Commit your configurations and reboot the server
Even though IPv4 has been fully occupied, many people still not realized that they need to start implementing IPv6 for their services. In this post, I am going to show how to implement IPv6 connectivity to SIP service which run on Asterisk.
Please note that we assuming that you already have enable IPv6 support on Network Configuration available on the ScopTEL PBX Web Management. If not, please refer to this article that explain how to enable IPv6 support on ScopTEL PBX.
We now support IPv6 out of box since Telephony module version 2.6.2.
Enabling IPv6 support in ScopTEL PBX is incredibly simple. In the GUI, click on Telephony -> Configuration -> Channels -> SIP Channels and set the Bind Address (UDP/TCP/TLS) to :: (all addresses), click on Save then click on Commit to update Telephony configuration files.
The Telephony service (Asterisk) will now route SIP traffic over IPv6 for any Extensions and VoIP Accounts that have either a valid DNS record (AAAA) for their hostname, or if you specify an IPv6 address on the Extensions and VoIP Accounts.
Phones can register using IPv4 or IPv6; the PBX will translate traffic between IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and even send RTP streams between IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. This makes it much easier to upgrade the network even when some devices do not support IPv6 yet.
Following is the list of some VoIP phones that are IPv6-ready. These are not the only SIP phones on the market that support IPv6; many Softphone (client) do and even more will also support it via a firmware update. These phones are those which, in addition to IPv6, also offer other great features and performance.
