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 risk.

"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 related technologies."

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.

Software Quality Partners is a division of Ajilon Services, Inc., and operates a unique software testing laboratory in Nashua, NH supporting clients worldwide.
