VoIP Quality & Streaming Testing
Video streaming is a huge part of daily life, especially in the last two years with many working remotely. Being able to easily communicate over Google Meet, Teams, Zoom, and other video calling services is essential for many employers and employees. Moreover, countless users consume hours of online videos in the form of news, TV series, and movies on streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, and Hulu on their mobile and desktop devices each day. However, effective, high-quality video streaming is often reliant on stable networks and optimized device performance. Guaranteeing video streaming performance over bad networks can be achieved with the help of our video streaming and VoIP quality testing tools.
Test Your Video Streaming Quality Before You Go Live
Since the network is the most dynamic factor in online video streaming it’s important to consider how network impairments will affect quality of service. Internet video is based on packet transmission, and can be affected by delays, transmission errors, data loss, and bandwidth limitations. These impairments all have a detrimental impact on the quality and experience of streaming content.
Test video streaming quality on emulated networks first and utilize network load tests to understand how these impairments affect the performance of the video then make adjustments to provide the best quality of video possible.
Apposite’s video performance testing tools can help developers identify and address performance bottlenecks caused by network impairments like bandwidth, latency, and packet loss prior to deployment. Our emulators can mimic cellular, Wi-Fi, and IP networks to assess video quality and performance against the full spectrum of potential impairments. You also can measure video quality with MOS, VMAF, POLQA, and PESQ using our traffic generation solutions. Generate video streaming traffic at a high scale to determine whether your network and devices can handle the load. Use both network emulation and traffic generation for complete video streaming performance testing.
Mimic cellular, Wi-Fi, and IP networks, and simulate any combination of network impairments. Conduct network bandwidth tests to make sure your applications are fully optimized to handle any drop in service.
Understand how changing network conditions will affect the end user’s streaming experience. Apposite’s network emulator measures the effect of real world impairments on video streaming prior to deployment.
After testing network bandwidth and video streaming, it’s easy to make adjustments to keep videos and VoIP running smoothly no matter what the network conditions.
Optimize Network Usage With VoIP
VoIP can be used to reduce network infrastructure costs because it allows enterprises to operate voice and data on a single network. However, voice traffic is sensitive to latency and can increase bandwidth requirements. While compression can be used to reduce usage, it can also negatively impact voice quality.
Network emulators allow you to performance test your VoIP against a variety of network conditions to validate voice quality on enterprise or private networks.
Video Performance and VoIP Quality Testing You Can Trust
Before you’re ready to switch your VoIP service or video streaming software, you need assurance that it will work in real-world conditions. Video performance and VoIP quality testing in a typical office setting can’t provide that level of confidence. But network emulators create a controlled environment that can deliver the real-world results you need from your VoIP quality and video streaming testing.
Network emulation allows you to test your application against real-world network impairments like latency, loss and bandwidth constraints. A video streaming test on an emulated network enables developers to understand how these impairments affect the quality of the video stream. You can quickly troubleshoot and optimize video streaming to ensure top performance. You also can use our traffic generation solutions to emulate video and voip traffic at scale to measure video quality with standards, like POLQA and PESQ.
What Is the Difference Between PESQ and POLQA?
PESQ (Perceptual Evaluation of Speech Quality) is an internationally recognized standard that provides an objective measurement of subjective listening tests. PESQ accounts for parameters like variable delays, noise on the line and clipping of audio.
POLQA (Perceptual Objective Listening Quality Analysis) is the next-generation global standard for testing. It delivers an advanced level of benchmarking accuracy and covers the latest speech coding and network transport technology.
