Vonage Correct. It has no bearing except to measure the RTT which is important. Also 68%





Correct. It has no bearing except to measure the RTT which is important. Also 68% is not a firewall issue that would record 100%. 68% indicates packets are dropping big time, very unhealthy, but 32% are getting through.

The fact that you lose packets does not detract from understanding your RTT. ICMP traffic being diagnostic traffic is not afforded the same privilige as UDP or TCP traffic. In simple terms UDP and TCP packets usually get to use the HOV lane and make it to the destination. ICMP on the other hand does not when traffic is high and in some cases will fail to reach the destination. Packet loss is very bad and if left uncorrected will eventually affect the Voip. YOU SHOULD NOT DROP PACKETS except by firewall design. It is an early warning, first comes high and erratic RTT then eventually packet loss.

The speed test does not use ICMP (Ping) for this reason it uses UDP and TCP. That said ICMP is an excellent early warning protocol because it is the first packet type (normally) to be victimized. When you get to the stage that UDP and TCP packets start dropping you should packup and go home.

Knowing your normal RTT using PING does provide a valuable and useful baseline measurement that alerts you to when there is trouble coming. Knowing the values that are normal allows you to understand when the values are abnormal. More importantly it also allows you to validate 'normal' as 'acceptable' because it often isn't.
To make my point say you own a BMW 530i and have done so for 6 months. I think it would be fair to say that you would have a good feel for its normal gas consumption. Just say in the 7th month you suddenly notice that your gas consumption drops from the normal 30 MPG to 10 MPG, wouldn't you take it to the dealer and say there is someing wrong fix it. Maybe if you purchased the BMW and it had only 10 MPG you would have accepted it as normal but it wouldn't necessarily be acceptable. The RTT is a measure similar to the MPG of the car, knowing what it is (average) and what is acceptable is an important baseline measurement.

When all is said and done what matters is the jitter, it is singularly the most important metric for Voip. Jitter is in essence the variation between what is normal and what is abnormal. i.e it is the variance above normal. If the variance is high then Voip will suffer. To know high you must know normal.

You cannot allow 68% packet loss to continue it will affect you if left uncorrected. Ultimately the ISP responsible must accept responsibility.
