VoIP readiness analysis for complex issues

For a holistic analysis of softphone behavior, a VoIP Readiness Analysis is sometimes essential. Here we work together with external service providers.

Preparation of the analysis

For analysis, you need the following information and data. 

Performing the analysis

  1. The debug logs are limited to the date/time (5min before/after).
  2. Comparing the information in the debug logs with the described actions and observed behavior.
  3. If the point in the debug log has been found and the information does not allow any conclusions, the analysis of the Wireshark trace begins.
  4. Verification of the network traffic in the Wireshark Trace by date/time to further narrow down the events.

What further details and data are required for analysis by estos?

  • Network topology of the environment
    • IP addresses
    • WLAN routers, network routers, and firewalls
    • Computers and virtual machines with details of the software and operating systems used
  • Version information of the estos software components used
  • Used PBX with firmware version
  • Files with a description as an attachment 

In special cases, our support will request additional data if necessary.
