IMS Rich-Media Voice and Video Support

Both the BrixCall active testing and live call performance analysis applications feature full support for IMS-based rich media services, including support for 3GPP rich communications suite (RCS) specifications.

IP voice and video media quality is continuously measured by a full set of key real-time transfer protocol (RTP) metrics, including RTP streams volumes, codec utilization, bandwidth, average and burst packet loss, average and peak jitter, packet discard, and one-way and round-trip latency. Audio media performance is characterized on a per-stream basis using standardized ITU G.107 E-model algorithms to produce both R-Factor and MOS scores. Standardized PESQ measurements are also available for active performance analysis.

Video media performance is supported by identical raw RTP metrics, but also features Brix-patented video quality index (VQI) algorithms to produce a single metric view of video media performance.

Active Performance Monitoring

Deployed in conjunction with Brix BV-110 and/or BV-3100 Active Verifiers, BrixCall active performance monitoring is an integrated component within the BrixWorx central-site software engine the provides direct measurement of VoIP, IMS and video call network element performance. Network active tests directly measure underlying signaling and media transport performance, whereas service active tests directly measure service quality from network to subscriber and from subscriber to network. Features such as on-demand tests and media loopback tests provide direct methods to troubleshoot VoIP, IMS and video call functions if performance degradations are discovered.

Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) is no longer just a lab exercise. It is now being rolled out into live network trials with many service providers planning mass deployment within the year. Fueled by the explosive growth of 4G LTE data traffic, the pressure to lower operating costs and the promise of new competitive services, VoLTE is expected to permeate mobile networks by 2015. However, since mobile subscribers are accustomed to the reliability and quality of 2G/3G circuit-switch voice, ensuring a successful VoLTE rollout is imperative for mobile service providers.
