Understanding and Monitoring Echo Cancellation for Optimal VoIP Performance

bullet

NetQoS

Echo is a difficult problem and not one that can be readily solved without access to the end-to-end circuit. Echo cancellation devices at the boundary of the VoIP system attempt to reduce echo that is of no concern in the PSTN so that it cannot be heard in the IP telephony environment. NetQoS VoIP Monitor provides a quick, overall rating of the success of this effort in the form of ACOM values for all gateway calls made on the monitored network, as well as some additional details, such as ERL, Signal In, and Signal Out, that are essential for troubleshooting echo problems.
