The Korean Telecommunications Technology Association has standardized on RADCOM’s Omni-Q VoIP quality monitoring solution to verify standards compliance by operators.
RADCOM, Ltd (NASDAQ:RDCM) announced that TTA, the Korean Telecommunications Technology Association, a non-governmental IT standards setting body, will use its Omni-Q system to conduct pre-licensing certification testing of more than twenty VoIP service providers for compliance with VoIP quality of service standards set by Korea’s Ministry of Information and Telecommunication.
Omni-Q is a distributed voice quality monitoring system that intelligently manages end-to-end voice and signaling quality on packet and circuit switched networks. It provides operators with a dynamic view of network service quality, and gives them quality management control by monitoring, analyzing and measuring VoIP network traffic.
The TTA is responsible for testing products from leading Korean manufacturers and service providers. It was established in 1988, and is a member of international standards organizations such as ITU, ETSI, T1, TTC, ARIB, TSACC and ACIF.
RADCOM believes that the TTA’s selection of Omni-Q will raise RADCOM’s visibility with VoIP technology and service providers who are required to show continuing compliance with mandated quality of service levels.

Pivetal will provide real-time VoIP-specific monitoring of user-perceived quality, thanks to Telchemy’s call quality analysis software.
Telchemy, Inc and Pivetal, Ltd announced today that Pivetal has embedded Telchemy’s VQmon/SA Stream Analysis call quality algorithms in Pivetal’s new QspeeQ family of VoIP Speech Quality Monitoring products, allowing Pivetal customers to assesses user-perceived VoIP quality in real time.
This new VoIP-specific capability further enhances the ability of Pivetal’s Cortex Service Assurance Suite to identify and fix network issues before they impact on service quality levels. This meets the needs of service providers, large and small, to monitor and enforce SLAs (Service Level Agreements) at the customer premise, as they begin rolling out real-time multimedia services such as VoIP.
Traditional call quality management systems have not so far provided the diagnostic tools needed to support the SLAs for new IP-based services, generating a demand for more sophisticated capabilities.
Telchemy’s VQmon provides real-time analysis of VoIP calls, generating quality metrics including listening and conversational quality scores, and detailed diagnostic information on the severity and distribution of packet loss, discards and jitter. VQmon is standards-based call quality monitoring software that supports the IETF RFC 3611 (RTCP XR) Protocol and the new QoS reporting protocols for ITU’s H.323, H.248 and G.799.1 standards.
