:: Sample Result ::

For VoIP the RTA (Ping) result are most critical since this will influence the Audio (Voice) stream.

Please compare your RTA with below table to get an indication of the voice quality or issues that might occur.

RTA Remark
<1ms - 10ms Excellent
10ms - 50ms Good
50ms - 150ms Poor - some voice quality issues right occur
150ms - 500ms Bad - frequent voice quality issues will occur
>500ms Very bad - constant voice quality issues will occur.

If you have low bandwidth and/or high RTA selecting the right codec might help to reduce some symptoms.
