Introduction

The QualiPoc 10.6 Speech and Video Test Description provides an overview of the following types of QualiPoc Speech and Video Call/Streaming tests: Speech: A-Side and B-Side LQ assessment tests Call to any number (access test) Video call test (access test) Video call to any number (access test)

Note: For a description of the abbreviations in this document, see the "Abbreviations" section on page 18. Intrusive, that is, double-ended tests, require a dedicated channel in the test system. The test transmits a predefined reference signal through this channel. The test assesses the quality of the calls by comparing the originating call signal (A-Side) to the received call signal (B-Side). Non-intrusive tests, that is, single-ended tests do not require a dedicated channel in the test system. These tests assess an unknown sample and do not occupy network resources to the same extent that intrusive tests do.

Overview of Speech and Video Call Tests


You can perform the following QualiPoc Speech Call tests to assess the functionality and quality of speech calls on a network. Note: To calculate the MOS speech quality, QualiPoc sends a predefined reference audio sample over the network. Speech Call Test: Assesses the functionality and quality of voice calls on a network. You can start the call on an A-Side or a B-Side device, which can be a mobile phone or a Diversity voice server. You can also use a dedicated service number, that is, IVR, for either side of the test. Call to Diversity Voice Server: Standard speech test where the Voice Call Server is controlled with DTMF tones that are sent to an ISDN or PSTN device that is connected to the server. You need to use this test if your Voice Call Server does not have access to an IP enabled network.

Note: Before the test starts, the A-Side device sets up a full configuration call to select the test on the BSide and to synchronize the measurement windows of both sides. Call to Any Number Test: Simple variant of the standard speech test that sets up a call for a specified amount of time. This test does not assess the speech quality of the call. Video Call Test: Same as the standard speech test except that the call is a video call instead of a voice call. This test cannot record the call. Video Call to Any Number: Same as the Call to any number test except that the call is a video call instead of a voice call.

QualiPoc 10.6 Speech and Video Test Description

A-Side and B-Side Tests


During a double-ended speech or video call test, the following sequence of events occurs: One device initiates a configuration call to the other device Other device sends a synchronization tone to the calling device Calling device synchronizes to the tone and the sample sequence starts on both devices One device starts to play a speech or video sample Other device records the sample

Note: Video call tests cannot record the sample. Recorded sample is compared to a local reference and MOS quality value is calculated. Calling device terminates the call

This sequence repeats for the amount of cycles, that is, window duration that you specify for the test. For more information on test settings, see the "Configuring an A-Side or B-Side Speech or Video Call Test" chapter on page 7. Configuration calls are required for Mobile to Mobile and Mobile to Diversity Voice Server B-Side devices while the following tests do not require a configuration call: Call to any number Call to Answering Station or Service Number (IVR)

Figure 1-1 on page 3 provides an overview of a speech call test. The general flow of a speech call is similar on the A-Side and B-Side devices except for the call and the sample directions. Each test starts with the 1 call setup delay which is followed by a consecutive series of call windows, that is, cycles. These two parameters are the same on both sides of the test. Note: On a trace capable phone, the call starts with trace capability setup which is followed by the actual test phase, that is, 1st call setup delay and the call windows. The behaviour of the test inside the call windows is determined by the job settings that you specify and the st network conditions. For a successful test, the call connects before the 1 call setup delay expires and terminates before the guard time ends. The guard time ensures that the call successfully terminates at the end of the test cycle. If the first call setup fails and the call terminates when the timeout is reached, the test attempts to reconnect after the amount of time that you specify. However, if this attempt exceeds the guard time, the call disconnects.
st

Video Call Tests


The test flow for Video call is exactly the same as for the speech call test. The main difference is that the call is a video call instead of a speech call. A Video Call Test establishes a Video Call and calculates the video quality of the presented video display. This test can only be done on trace-capable phones. To establish a Video Call there must be a 3G Network available. A Video Call Test with video quality evaluation (MOS-Value) must establish the call to a Video Call Server which transmits a predefined video sample to the A-Side. In combination with NQTM such a test can be easily configured and run automatically.

Call Direction
The call direction of A-Side and B-Side tests is specified by Mobile Originated Call (MOC) and Mobile Terminated Call (MTC) values respectively.

Parameter
MOC-only MOC/MTC MTC-only

Ratio
MOC/MTC = X:0 MOC/MTC = 1:X MOC/MTC = 0:X

X Value
(X>0) (X>0) (X>0)

For example, if the MOC/MTC ratio is 2:1, the A-Side device initiates the call in the first two call windows while the B-Side device initiates the call in the third call window. Similarly, the B-Side device terminates the call in the first two call windows while the A-Side device terminates the call in the third call window. The test

Sample Direction During a Test


During a double-ended test one side plays a sample and the other side listens for and measures the quality of the sample. The sample direction can either be from A to B, where the A-Side device plays the sample and B-Side device listens for the sample or from B to A, where B plays the sample and A listens for the sample. The test repeats this sample direction for the duration of the measurement. Note: Each test is equal to one speech sample.

Sequence of Call Setup and Playing Samples


After a successful call setup, the test plays a defined sequence of sounds on the called side. The A-Side searches for this BD-DTMF sequence, that is, synchronization tone and then starts to record and evaluate the speech samples.

Figure 1-4 Sequence of tones and samples

The called side plays the following sequence of tones and samples: Twitcher and Cocodjojo sample: Serves as line opener for QualiPoc Synchronization sample: Combination of four multi-frequency tones, namely a regular DTMF BTone and D-Tone as well as two higher frequency tones that are outside of the DTMF-frequency range which trigger the recording start on QualiPoc phones. This reference sample is played after the Connect to synch delay that you specify.

Note: For standard answering machines, this delay is 7 seconds. The delay must provide the phone enough time to play the sample and to switch between the phone application and the QPAEngine after the connection is established. WAV reference speech sample: Plays 2.6 seconds after the synchronization sample start. The voice starts on the reference sample after two seconds of silence, so the actual delay is 2.8 seconds for the standard sample. The length of the interval in which the speech sample repeated plays depends on the length of the sample, for example, a 5 second sample corresponds to a 20 second interval and a 6 second sample corresponds to a 25 second interval.

Call to Any Number Test


The Call to Any Number test procedure is the same as the speech tests that are described in the "A-Side and B-Side Tests" section on page 2 except for the following differences: Call duration is limited to 60 seconds if you use Test Manager to configure the test Test has only one pause value, which is also used as the value for the guard time

Note: For the Video Call to Any Number Test, QualiPoc attempts to establish a video call with the receiving end.

Call to Diversity Voice Server Test


The Call to Diversity voice server test procedure is similar to the speech tests that are described in the "ASide and B-Side Tests" section on page 2. The only difference is that the configuration call uses in-band DTMF tones to select the corresponding test and in a second sequence, to synchronize the call windows for the measurement.

consult the manufacturer manuals for your phone and your computer. 2. Copy the following B-Side device configuration file from your phone to your computer: C:\data\QualiPoc\DataTest\Jobs\VoiceServer\Job_123.ini 3. Copy the Job_123.ini file to the following location on the Diversity Voice Server: C:\Documents and settings\All users\Application data\SwissQual\Diversity\Tasks\ PreDefinedJobs Important: The three digit number in the filename must be unique on the server. This number is transmitted during the configuration call as in-band DTMF tones to identify the job that the Diversity Voice Server has to start.

Starting a Double-Ended Speech or Video Call Test


At the start of a Data Call test, QualiPoc opens a GPRS session through the access point that you configured for QPAEngine on the phone. For information on how to configure an access point, see Manual QualiPoc SW - Active Engine.pdf. QualiPoc uses an adapted version of the Squad LQ algorithm to calculate the MOS of the speech samples that are received. Depending on the processing power of the phone, the algorithm takes 5 to 15 seconds to calculate the MOS. The amount of time between two speech samples is 20 to 30 seconds is determined by the length of the reference sample.

To manually start a double-ended Speech or Video Call test in QPAEngine


1. On the B-Side device, start the B-Side test. a In QPAEngine, select Options > Start a job > Choose from List > Speech Call.

Note: For a video call, select Video Call/Streaming. b c Select Call-MOS (B-Side) and select Start. Take note of the Job ID for the B-Side test in the Status view.

2. On the A-Side device, start the A-Side test. a b c d In QPAEngine, select Options > Start a job > Choose from List > Speech Call. Select Call-MOS (A-Side) and select Start. In the Start Job view, select Yes. In the TID from BSide Job box, enter the Job ID from the Status view of the B-Side test, and then select OK.

Note: NQDI uses this ID to match the measurement files from both sides of the test when you import the files into the NQDI database.

Stopping a Call to a Diversity Voice Server without a Connection


If you stop a test on the phone that involves the Diversity Voice Server, QPAEngine plays a "stop" reference sample instead of a speech sample, and then exits the test. Upon receipt of the "stop" sample, the voice server component of the test automatically stops. Important: If QPControl in advanced mode cannot end the current cycle and play the "stop" sample within 50 seconds, QPControl forces a stop. The voice server restarts the task after the test duration expires or when you start a new configuration call. Such a scenario can occur if the samples finish playing and recording before the call duration expires.

Configuring a Speech or Video Call to Any Number Test

This section describes how to manually configure a Speech or video Call to Any Number test in the QPAEngine software on your phone. You only need to configure the test on the A-Side device. Although you do not need a dedicated B-Side device, the device that receives the call must be able to answer the call and hold the connection until the ASide phone terminates the call. The Call to Any Number test does not perform a speech quality assessment.
