It says from the CCNP voice study that the max end-to-end transit time for voice is 150ms. How do I test that? The reason I ask is because my users are complaining of internittent lost of voice during their VoIP phone conversation. Thanks

Ping the remote phone system from the phone's location or vise-versa.  Ping -t will keep it going and show times in ms.

Ping gives you a fair insight of the latency between two nodes.

You can also use pathping which is a combination of ping and tracert and provides you more info of the intermittent nodes (hops) as well.

pathping 213.201.128.21

Tracing route to ns1.novaxess.nl [213.201.128.21]
over a maximum of 30 hops:
  0  xxx.xxx.local [x.x.x.x]

  2  nl-rt-dc2-ias-arg27.kpn.net [62.12.4.63]

Ping is NOT a reliable tool for testing latency in a VOIP environment. Ping is often treated as low priority network traffic by WAN networks and the results are not in any way representative for VOIP traffic.

Most VOIP systems do collect extensive data themselves (latency, jitter, packet loss), so the best way to do this is get the information from within the ip phones themselves. How to do this depends on your specific brand.

I am fairly new to VoIP. But I have Avaya VoIP phones. So I can get the stats from within the phone or it is somewhere in the PBX.

Both the phones and the PBX should be able to deliver some stats.

Avaya has a software called "Avaya Prognosis VOIP Monitor" that facilitates accessing these stats.

The problem may be in jitter buffer configuration
