The principal conclusions of the study were:
  1. Overall, the one-way listening speech quality provided by the combination of Microsoft’s client and USB handset was consistently better than that provided by Cisco’s IP phones and Call Manager, whether using G.711 or G.729.
  2. More detailed analysis showed that the mean transmission bandwidth of the Microsoft solution typically fell between 24kbps and 80kbps, which are the bit-rates of the Cisco solution with G.711 and G.729 operation respectively. The peak bandwidth of the Microsoft solution was 100kbps for some IP conditions.
  3. In general, the maximum recommended value for round-trip delay is approximately 400ms, i.e. a one-way delay of 200ms. The delays observed for both Clients with low IP impairment conditions are within, or close to, this budget, although it should be noted that control of the delay budget within VoIP networks remains essential.

  • Many enterprises are working with an IT architecture that's evolved over time. As business needs evolve, IT must decide whether to modernize incrementally, or all at once. Each approach has its benefits and drawbacks. Identity Management is key to modernizing IT; it plays a crucial role in migrating to cloud apps like Office 365 or HR information systems, building web and mobile apps, and opening developer access to business systems. Read how Okta's modern approach to identity management helps business lower …

  • MongoDB has the flexibility, adaptability and extensibility to embrace widely varying data types and rapid design/deployment cycles. Combining MongoDB with our 5100 ECO Enterprise SSD brings amazing results in smaller, simpler deployments compared to legacy storage. In this technical brief, we compare two MongoDB test clusters, each using the Linux Logical Volume Manager (LVM) for RAID configuration: 5100 ECO 3-node cluster: Two Micron 5100 ECO (1.92TB) per node configured as a software RAID 0 (LVM) Legacy …
