Abstract  Current trends point to VoIP as a cheaper and more effective long term solution than possible future PSTN upgrades. To move towards greater adoption of VoIP the future converged digital network is moving towards a service level management and control regime. To ensure that VoIP services provide an acceptable quality of service (QoS) a measurement solution would be helpful. The research outcome presented in this thesis is a new system for testing, analysing and presenting the call quality of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). The system is called VoIP WeatherMap. Information about the current status of the Internet for VoIP calls is currently limited and a recognised approach to identifying the network status has not been adopted. An important consideration is the difficulty of assessing network conditions across links including network segments belonging to different telecommunication companies and Internet Service Providers. The VoIP WeatherMap includes the use of probes to simulate voice calls by implementing RTP/RTCP stacks. VoIP packets are sent from a probe to a server over the Internet. The important characteristics of VoIP calls such as delay and packet loss rate are collected by the server, analysed, stored in a database and presented through a web based interface. The collected voice call session data is analysed using the E-model algorithm described in ITU-T G.107. The VoIP WeatherMap presentation system includes a geographic display and internet connection links are coloured to represent the Quality of Service rank.
