Our colleagues over at CNET Labsfrequently test new VoIP phone services.
The testing environment involves calls made from a broadband VoIP service connection to atraditional landline phone.
Our lab folks send lots of data, voice and file traffic, and then employ some rigorous tests to see how the transfers went.
Want a plain-English explanation of what we look for - andby extension, what service standards you should expect from your VoIP provider?
Go to our How we test Voice over IP page. It's interesting reading - with no equations. I promise.
Then, when you are done, don't forget who sent you there. Come back here and give us a TalkBack with your thoughts about if there are any other criteria our VoIP testers should be looking for.
