Speed tests

Post by zappullae » Wed Jun 03, 2009 6:42 am

I was on the phone with tech support yesterday. What are the 2 speed test sites they use? I need to gather performance data for them. My ooma is dragging.

Here is the one most here recommend:

http://www.whichvoip.com/voip/speed_test/ppspeed.html

There was another posted by Dennis P or Bobby B but I don't have that one bookmarked. You can search for posts from one of those two to see if you can find it.

Tech support asked me to use http://ndt.iupui.nuq01.measurement-lab.org:7123/ when I was experiencing echo problems. The site always says "We are sorry, but the NDT server is currently unavailable. Please check back later" but as soon as the "Start" button appears you can run the test. After running it, click the "Statistics" button to bring up a complete report. You can highlight the text in that report and copy it to this forum if needed. The server is not too far from ooma's servers.

Friends don't remember what Landline Integration was or why we did it.

I have found traditional speed test sites like http://www.speedtest.net are inneffective for VOIP testing. Even dial up will produce adequate bandwidth to support the bandwidth requirements of Ooma, but will it pass the latency and QoS tests?

I think the other ones posted are better for our needs.

There are a wealth of "bandwidth" measurements. Try http://www.dslreports.com/tools and http://www.whichvoip.com
