What are latency, jitter, and packet loss and how do they affect my calls?
Once a call has successfully been setup, latency, jitter, and packet loss effects are important predictors of overall call quality.

Latency
A measure of the delay in a call. We measure both the round-trip delay between when information leaves point A and when a response is returned from point B, and the one-way delay between when something was spoken and when it was heard. The largest contributor to latency is caused by network transmission delay. Round-trip latency affects dynamics of conversation and is used in our MOS calculations. One-way latency is used for diagnosing network problems.

With round trip latencies above 300 msec or so, users may experience annoying talk-over effects.

Jitter
Jitter refers to how variable latency is in a network. High jitter, greater than approximately 50 msec, can result in both increased latency and packet loss. Let's see how.

When talking to someone it's important that they hear what you say in the same order that you say it, otherwise they won't understand what you're telling them. Unfortunately, jitter causes packets to arrive at their destination with different timing and possibly in a different order than they were sent (spoken), with some arriving faster and some slower than they should.

To correct the effects of jitter, Voip endpoints collect packets in a buffer and put them back together in the proper timing and order before the receiver hears them. This works, but it's a balancing act. Processing that buffer adds delay to the call, so the bigger the buffer, the longer the delay. Remember the effects of latency? Keep in mind, no matter how big the buffer is, it is finite in size. If voice packets arrive when the buffer is full then packets are dropped and the receiver will never hear them. These are called discarded packets.

Packet Loss
Just as it's important to hear what someone says in the order they say it, it's also important to hear all of what they're saying. If you miss one out of every 10 words or 10 words all at once, chances are you're not going to understand much of the conversation. This is packet loss — some of the voice packets are dropped by network routers or switches that become congested (lost packets), or discarded by the jitter buffer (discarded packets).

Knowing the average packet loss for a call gives you an overall sense for the quality of the call. A call with less than 1 percent average packet loss will always sound better than a call with 10 percent loss. But average loss doesn't tell the whole story. You need to know what type of packet loss you encountered.

There are two kinds of packet loss: "random" and "bursty". Think about two calls each with average 1 percent packet loss. Call A loses one in every 100 packets over the entire call (random loss) while Call B loses 100 packets in two clumps at the beginning and the end of the call (bursty loss). Which call would you rather have? That's why we report not just the average packet loss but also the type of loss and information on any bursts of packet loss during your call (reported as loss periods). It matters.

Caller Can''t hear me


I've been on Vonage for a year now with no problems until the last week. The people
any recent changes to your setup? any pattern (happens on some calls but not others)? what
Nothing has changed on my system. My Results: Download 4,758,224 bps Upload
hmm ok, those results look more like "I can hear you but you're choppy/breaking
Usually they can hear me at first, after 20 seconds or so they usually cannot hear
before I did that I would run pingplotter.com for a while. search if you need more
Another easy way I found my problem was to open a dos window, then enter the coomand: ping
I am having the very same issues going on over here. Just Pinging, I get 0 loss...
I'm still having the same problems with Vonage. The cable company is supposed
