USB-Testbook has the ability to make real SIP based VoIP calls to any destination including Fixed Line Phones (POTS), Mobiles, International Numbers and of course other VoIP devices. How often do you test a new SIP trunk or VoIP service and find that the maximum call capacity is configured incorrectly or that call routes to certain destinations are not possible. USB-Testbook.Lite allows users to check call capacity of trunks and networks as well as test call routes using a number of different calls modes.
A key issue when deploying VoIP especially when replacing traditional analogue and TDM voice services is the call quality, are users experiencing good voice quality when making VoIP calls. USB-Testbook provides a real-time call quality (MOS) indication whilst test calls are in progress. Using easy to understand colour indicators USB-Testbook shows the call quality for each call in progress allowing users to determine if the underlying network or service is able to deliver the required quality of service. Users can adjust the ToS (Type of Service) and CoS (Class of Service) for both the SIP signalling and RTP (Media) in order to determine network performance and to check if QoS settings are in place and effective.
Ensuring that your internal enterprise network is capable and ready for VoIP deployment is as important as testing eternal SIP trunks and VoIP service connections. Using USB-Testbook along with USB.Testbook loop provides a cost effective and powerful solution for VoIP pre-deployment testing. USB-Testbook uses real SIP VoIP calls with media to carry out it's tests rather than synthetic UDP packets. This allows you to stress you network with real VoIP conditions ensuring that your network and equipment is configured correctly and delivering the required QoS. Testing across your enterprise network is great to ensure network VoiP readiness, but often calls are to external numbers or remote workers and offices where calls have to transverse an external network. With USB-Testbook using real SIP signalling and media it can also make tests externally through SIP trunks and service providers VoIP networks to ensure call completion and call quality.
When deploying VoIP services behind routers especially those with NAT, ALG and firewalls, there can be issues such as no voice or one-way voice even if a VoIP phone indicates that the call is connected. USB-Testbook can help isolate VoIP issues by automatically reporting on a number of identified issues whilst making test calls. For example if during a call USB-Testbook detects that RTP (Voice) has been lost in either the forward or reverse direction it alerts the user to the issues both in the graphical user interface as well as the system log. This capability help users to identify issues that are otherwise difficult and time consuming to find. Once a problem such as one-way RTP is identified USB-Testbook can then by used to provide a consistent and repetitive method of testing whilst changes are made to network and equipment settings required to address the issue.
Testing Trunks and Networks for VoIP capability and performance is all well and good but how do you share with others those test results and prove that testing has been successful. With automatic PDF test report generation, USB-Testbook.Lite generates and saves detailed PDF reports in the background each time you run a test. Two test reports are generated, one graphical detailing call completion information and call quality statistics, the other providing a copy of the system log displayed in the test workspace detailing all call information and other detected events. The PDF reports can be customised by loading your own Logo/Header and details such as site details and engineers name can be added to the reports, Ideal for giving to customers or keeping for internal records.
Identifying issues in any network can be difficult especially when equipment and services are provided by different suppliers. When problems happen, finger pointing often occurs with different vendors blaming the other. With USB-Testbook you can easily isolate VoIP issues by replacing different VoIP entities in the network. In PBX emulation mode you can emulate a VoIP PBX or similar checking that SIP trunks and VoIP networks and infrastructure are operating correctly. In Network (ITSP) emulation mode you can emulate the VoIP network and infrastructure allowing users to test VoIP PBX's and other VoIP CPE to ensure for correct operation and configuration. Network Emulation mode is often used by users to pre-stage and test VoiP equipment in the lab before it is delivered and installed on customers sites.
USB-Testbook is a comprehensive SIP Trunk, VoIP service, and Enterprise VoIP pre-deployment tester. Designed specifically for those tasked with installing and maintaining VoIP services and equipment, USB-Testbook is an easy to use but powerful test tool. Able to emulate both customers equipment and the VoIP network itself, USB-Testbook can be used to test service providers VoIP services and SIP Trunks, VoIP equipment such as PABX's and VoIP routers, and internal network infrastructure for VoIP readiness.
USB-Testbook can be used to commission, bring into service or test SIP/VoIP trunks. It can make up to 30 simultaneous calls in standard mode or 200 in mass call mode and check that you can both make calls but also support a certain number of calls, it also provides a real-time MOS (Call Quality) indicator. In addition USB-Testbook can emulate the VoIP network allowing users to check that VoIP equipment is configured correctly and operateds before connection to the network.
USB-Testbook can be used with any x64 (64 bit) based PC or Laptop. It has a self contained operating system and application which means it boots from the USB device and does not rely on the operating system of the PC, and can still be used if the hard disk is locked down due to corporate or security policies.
No, you can use USB-Testbook on a VoIP network to make calls to any device/desitantion on the network such as a VoIP Phone, a Mobile or for example a voice mail box or other automated answering system. Of course if you wish you could make calls between two USB-Testbooks on the network and in this case USB-Testbook has some built in features to automatically answer incoming calls and send out media (RTP) which helps simplify the testing procedure.
