High Jitter Buffer underflow
« on: November 09, 2011, 01:09:10 AM »
Hi,
Our call centre agents are experiencing quite a lot of dropped out.
Having a look the controller, the Voice Quality Statistics shows high Jitter Buffer Under Flow (over 2 thousands) for most records.
All the agents' phones are connected to Mitel Border Gateway. I have restarted MBG but in vain.
I have set Qos and DSCP on the switches. What else can I do to diagnose and fix the problem?

Cheers

If you're going across the public internet you loose all QOS.
Lets start 1st with your WAN pipe.   How big is it and what type is it?
A DSL will not provide the same up link speed as a the down link. 
What other type of traffic is hitting the external firewall interface?

I've seen one instance where the carrier showed me a report that showed the customers WAN interface completely saturated between 8 and 5 then it dropped to nothing.   Turns out that half the people in the building was using Pandora throughout the day completely overwhelming the pipe.

I have been monitoring the statistic over 2 weeks, the values for jitter buffer underflow is still high (>1000).
the Mitel Cx controller is hosted in the same building as the call centre.
The WAN link is 10mbits/s, the service provider has checked the traffic is fine.

what other things i can look for packets delayed.
I have used wireshark to trace traffic of a phone, which goes to the MBG (mitel border gateway).
So I got a list of UDP packets, and no hint if there is any delay as they are not sequenced.

anyone had jitter problem with VoIP?

Not providing a solution, but have you run the TNA tool from the call centre to see what the call quality looks like? Might give you a lead on where the cause may be.

TNA is a software tool that comes with your MBG server.
In the teleworker blade under diagnostics (I believe) you'll find the download link.
Run it on a PC at the remote location.
