Mean Opinion Score and V1 VoIP Quality

The Mean Opinion Score (MOS) is a test that has been used for decades in telephony networks to obtain the human user’s experience of the quality of a phone call. This measurement is the result of underlying network attributes that act upon data flow and is useful in predicting call quality and is a good VoIP test tool in determining issues that can affect your VoIP quality and your conversations.

Testing the quality of VoIP has become easier which has furthered the advancement in the quality of services has helped increase the number of VoIP subscribers, but occasionally issues affecting voice quality do arise and being able to test your VoIP and identify these instances can be helpful in addressing them. The MOS is assigned by a group of listeners using a scale of 1 to 5 with

5: Perfect. Like face-to-face conversation or radio reception.
4: Fair. Imperfections can be perceived, but sound still clear. This is (supposedly) the range for cell phones.
3: Not great.
2: Very annoying. Nearly impossible to communicate.
1: Impossible to communicate

By its very name “Opinion”, the MOS, Mean Opinion Score was a subjective measurement used to test the listener’s perception of the voice quality, and clarity of the communication. The test was performed in a ‘quiet room’ meeting specific size and noise requirements, in which listeners would receive and score calls on the quality as they perceived it. VoIP MOS score measurements, on the other hand, is usually more objective, the score providing a measure of the network over which it is carried.

Having a metric to measure changes or degradation in the quality of the voice/VoIP connection after testing can help identify problems. VoIP calls often are in the 3.5 to 4.2 MOS range. MOS is a relative scale and is built upon many factors which can affect voice quality. Real voice signals are used to test clarity, delay, packet loss, jitter and determine a probable MOS score. Yes, this is an estimate to the human based MOS score, but it is more practical and scalable. MOS takes into account factors including listening quality, transmission quality, and conversational quality.

Which Codec Should You Use for SIP Trunks

V1 VoIP thinks of voice quality on quite a different scale for VoIP users than with a standard cell phone call. While comparing the two might be simple, the better method when evaluating the quality of VoIP call quality is the codec. Assigned and a scale called the mean opinion score.

A codec, which stands for coder-decoder, converts an audio signal (your voice) into compressed digital form for transmission (VoIP) and then back into an uncompressed audio signal for replay. It’s the essence of VoIP. Codecs vary in the sound quality, the bandwidth required, the computational requirements, etc. Each service, program, phone, gateway, etc., typically supports several different codecs, and when talking to each other, negotiate which codec they will use.

Some codecs are royalty free, while others require licensing, often included in the gateways. Others drive the wholesale movement of voice traffic among the carriers and are used for specialty applications. Each contaisn variations within their own specification.

Common VoIP Codec Protocols
G.729 is the most commonly used codec in VoIP calling is a codec that has low bandwidth requirements but provides good audio quality.

G.711 with only a 1:2 compression and a 64K bitrate for each direction (128K plus some overhead), it is best used where there is a lot of bandwidth available.

G.722 is a high bit rate (48/56/64Kbps) ITU standard codec which, because it is of even better quality of the traditional public switched telephone network (PSTN), it can be used for a variety of higher quality speech applications. But be warned, this standard also requires an adequate amount of bandwidth.

You can assign a different codec to individual phones. You can use medium quality/low bandwidth G.729 codec while the boss and legal department uses the superior quality/heavy bandwidth G.722 codec. The codecs that provide the best quality consume the most data bandwidth, thus there is a trade-off that you need to consider. The easiest way is to ascertain, on a phone by phone basis, whether you want the voice conversation to be:

Easy Reseller Guide to V1 VoIP SIP Trunking

SIP Trunking has become one of the most requested services by V1 VoIP resellers. For those looking to get into the market, here is an easy guide to the underlying technology of SIP Trunking, including what goes into creating a SIP trunking service, and why you should be offering it to your customers.

What Exactly is SIP Trunking?
SIP trunking replaces analog and PRI phone lines because it is the VoIP connection used with a customer’s PBX for making calls. V1 VoIP SIP Trunking is usually much less expensive than traditional landlines and has an incredible amount of features.

The Elements of SIP Trunking
This is a central device in a telecommunications network which connects telephone calls from one phone line to another, across a legacy telecommunication network or the public Internet, entirely by means of software running on a general-purpose computer system.

SIP trunking requires proper Internet bandwidth at the softswitch location and across the entire Internet network. Quality providers have multiple ISP’s and use major internet backbone carriers.

V1 VoIP Guide to Components of SIP Trunking

By reselling V1 VoIP services, we can give you everything you need to be a provider of SIP Trunks. Do you even know what goes into a SIP Trunk? Here is the V1 VoIP guide to SIP Trunk components.

Call origination refers to the collecting of the calls initiated by a calling party on a telephone exchange of the PSTN, and handing off the calls to a VoIP endpoint or to another exchange or telephone company for completion to a called party. Originating carriers provide the DID’s and toll free numbers for SIP trunking.

Call Termination
Call termination, or voice termination, is the service of a telecommunication carrier who completes the telephone calls originated by the calling party to the intended destination.

Termination & Origination Carriers
V1 VoIP offers the largest footprint in North America including Canada from over 7,500 rate centers. Not only that but we offer ONE TIER of pricing for the entire United States. Contact us below to learn more!

Wholesale VoIP
SIP trunk providers purchase through the wholesale channel. They typically contract with many carriers and choose providers based upon coverage, pricing and quality. They then monitor the performance, statistics and costs for each carrier and modify their call routing to provide the highest quality calls. Most wholesalers offer tiered pricing that the SIP trunk provider can choose from. The best wholesalers provide custom-built “rate decks” that allow the SIP trunk provider to design their own network of carriers and automatically route calls based upon pre-set criteria.

Lastly, the SIP trunk provider can actively manage their carriers so that if a specific carrier has quality issues, that carrier can be removed from the call routing table, either temporarily or permanently.

Now that you know all that goes into being a SIP trunking provider, you are now an educated buyer.
