Software Quality Partners Announces New Testing Services For
Voice Over IP
Software Quality Partners (SQP), a leading national software quality assurance and
testing company providing on-site consulting and lab-based outsourcing services, announces
new voice over IP (VoIP) testing services.
According to Mark Fusco, SQP President, " The explosive growth in transmitting
Voice over IP (VoIP) data networks means remarkable savings and flexibility for planning
and implementing enterprise telephony solutions. Quality, however cannot be measured nor
guaranteed without thorough 'real world' testing -- inadequate testing means unacceptable
"An integral part of SQP's VoIP Testing Services," added Mr. Fusco, "is
use of products of Hammer Technologies. Hammers are the only systems providing a complete
solution for load, feature, regression, and in-service testing of integrated
telecommunications systems and services. System test capabilities include voice, data,
T-1, E-1, ISDN, WWW, TCP/IP, LAN/WAN, SS-7, Facsimile, Speech Recognition and other
Specifically, SQP offers:
- IP Telephony Server/Telephony Load Testing: this service tests the
establishment and tear down of gateway connections using programmable and dynamic call
mixes and traffic volumes to determine the ability to handle increasing loads.
- Telephony Feature Testing: covering today's rich feature sets including
call routing, voice response interface functionality, billing system integrity, and call
set-up and handling functions.
- Data Network Analysis Testing: SQP's Hammer solution monitors VoIP
traffic for dropped packets, jitter, delays, and other transmission and traffic issues for
problem analysis and corrective action.
- Automated Audio Quality Testing: Industry standard-based Perceptual
Speech Quality Measurement (PSQM) voice quality testing using Hammer embedded PSQM
algorithms for call quality measurement -- Hammer can detect quality degradation at load
well before it can be detected by the human ear.
"Additionally, SQP delivers Hammer-based testing solutions with integrated Web
and/or GUI automated testing using tools such as SilkTest from Segue Software Inc. and
WinRunner from Mercury Interactive. Together, our VoIP and other automated testing methods
offers complete quality assurance to unified messaging and other voice/data convergent
solutions," concluded Mr. Fusco.
Delivery is custom priced depending on the scope of the engagement.
