Poor connection speeds can massively interfere with your cloud phone system’s call quality and put a huge dent in efficiency and patience. According to the latest BCT Report, 65.5% of people said voice and phone calling was their preferred method of contact. Therefore, ensuring that your clients get a familiar, high-quality calling experience is key for modern businesses.
What is Measured in the Speed Test?
VoIP needs only an active internet connection to make and receive calls. However, to ensure you can support multiple concurrent calls, these factors are important.
PING: Measured in milliseconds, Ping looks at the delay before sending and receiving data from one point to another. For your VoIP needs, this means how long it takes for voice to reach the other recipient on a phone call. Low ping is good ping.
JITTER: Jitter is linked to call quality and is often the difference between a positive call and a frustrating one. Like Ping, Jitter measures delays and packet loss. Depending on what type of communication you are using, Jitter can show up differently with voice, video, and music being the most common.
DOWNLOAD & UPLOAD SPEEDS: The higher the number, the better your download and upload speeds are. Measured in megabits per second, this can affect how fast your data travels and the overall call quality. A good speed means fewer delays. As a result, there is less communication lag, which can sometimes leave you looking like a bad puppeteer act!
