Does anybody know?
Is there a known issue with centro grande dsl router and PPTP VPN over swisscom net? We have several customers that can’t establish a connection any more - since about 2 or 3 weeks.
Thanks for some help

Here's a short follow-up to yesterday's presentation of Zebbra guys.
What Markus and Roland have presented, is an approach to monitoring
the quality inside the box (CUCM in their case). But there are
actually ways to monitor the quality outside of the box, and they have
been around for a while.
For example, I've seen a demonstration of Malden MultiDSLA tool over
10 years ago. At that time they only had the analog interface that
emulated a handset, and two Malden boxes were sending an audio sample
to each other and assessing the quality of received audio. The tool is
quite expensive though.
There are currently several commercial solutions for audio quality analysis:
POLQA (expensive), recommended by ITU-T: it compares two audio files
and produces the quality assessment score.
Sevana AQuA (less expensive): it also compares two audio files and
produces several quality metrics. I compared it with PESQ (predecessor
of POLQA), and AQuA works significantly faster. It was very helpful in
detecting lost RTP packets in the tests where I could not place a
packet sniffer wherever I wanted.
There are also various approaches to passive quality analysis, and
some are documented in ITU-T P.563 and G.107. Sevana is also offering
its PVQA tool that tries to detect packet loss and audio distortions
by analyzing the input audio.
I could not find any open-source tools which would help in quality
analysis at the audio level. But there's plain old tshark which
produces the loss and jitter statistics for RTP streams, and it's
pretty efficient if you are able to capture the traffic at the
receiving end. Also VoIP monitor provides the ability of G.107
analysis on captured data packets.
Here's my detailed article on using Sevana AQuA:
And here's my demo lab, and you have a possibility to send an audio
recording for Sevana PVQA analysis:

I recently bought a Mikrotik CR1009-8G-1S-1S+. I added a Mikrotik S
-31DLC20D SFP module to connect my internet uplink.
The uplink provider confirmed that the uplink should be working with
wavelength 1310 nm, single mode, 1GBit, no auto negotiation.
Unfortunately the webinterface shows "no link". Firmware is 6.33 and I
rebooted the device - still no link.
Please note that I do NOT get a value for sfp-rx-power in the
webinterface or the following dump. Is that a hint that the fiber is
not OK or is that conclusion invalid?

We are looking for a tool that permits to check the behavior of a telephony system at the level of the end user.
The idea is to launch telephone calls at regular intervals one system, to pass through the public network and to check on the PABX system under test (Siemens HiPath 4000 with Trade-Boards) that the voice call arrives (signaling path) and can be established (voice path).
Our problem today is that we can check plenty of internal interfaces and links, but we do not known if all the higher level protocols behave well.
Thanks for your ideas !
