  • Patent number: 7313098
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for improved monitoring and analysis of VoIP communications, multimedia communications or other types of network traffic in a network-based communication system. In accordance with one aspect of the invention, an endpoint device of the system includes an integrated call synthesis capability. More particularly, the endpoint device is configurable into at least a first mode of operation in which the device responds to one or more commands from a testing server of the system directing the device to participate in a synthetic call or other test communication within the system, and a second mode of operation in which the device is utilizable by a system user to establish an actual communication. Other aspects of the invention relating to kernel timestamping and timestamp post-processing provide improved accuracy for measurements such as jitter, loss and delay.

  • Patent number: 7031264
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for improved monitoring and analysis of VoIP communications, multimedia communications or other types of network traffic in a network-based communication system. In accordance with one aspect of the invention, endpoint devices of the network-based communication system are configurable so as to collectively implement a distributed monitoring and analysis system which does not require a centralized testing server or other centralized controller. Distributed test units associated with the endpoint devices may be utilized in implementing the distributed monitoring and analysis system, and are preferably configured to support a web-based user interface providing access to measurement data. The endpoint devices may be advantageously organized into a hierarchy comprising a plurality of zones, with each of the endpoint devices belonging to at least one zone.
