we have a 7206 router which does saa jitter operation measurement for about 50 access-location.
to one location we had a 2mb/s fr link and the mos value was 4,06.
we have this value from hp-ov which reads out the mib from the 7206.
today i upgraded the link to this location to 10mb/s (eth) - but the mos value did not change at all.
i know that 4,06 is ggod, but in my logical point of understanding i thought that if i have 5 times a quicker connection - it should be recognizable - although the jitter value which we also measure has decreased a lot
I mean, that the PCM (G.711) codec, which is normally used for Ethernet to Ethernet VoIP would not provide a MOS better than 4.1 (as far as I remember). PCM is also used with ISDN (64 kbps) telephony.
As you need to digitize an analog signal (voice) there needs to be a codec (coder - decoder). Depending on your codec of choice MOS values above 4 are not possible. And with PCM you get around 4.1 - so 4.06 should be close to the optimum. The underlying reason is, that digitizing usually involves degradation of voice quality. "Normal" telephones f.e. will cut off any frequencies outside 300 Hz - 3.4 kHz.
The question is, however, how HP-OV measures MOS and whether the two values are comparable. Between which values could those MOS values from HP-OV potentially be? Normally MOS is on a scale from 1 (unusable) to 5 (very good).
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
