Say goodbye to Jitterbugs with
Network Jitter Monitoring

Continuously measure network jitter and defeat the enemy of VoIP calls.

Jitter is the most underestimated network metric. People are more familiar with packet loss and latency, but they forget that jitter has the biggest impact on voice and video applications.

Jitter is the variation in the arrival time of voice packets during their journey across the Internet. Jitter disrupts the regularity of packet arrival, leading to an inconsistent flow of voice data and, consequently, a degraded call quality.

Measure jitter isn’t simple - because it's not the time it takes to get from point A to B, it’s the variation. And tools like ping, and UCMP with traceroutes don’t give you the visibility you need to catch jitter in UDP applications.

That’s why Obkio’s Network Jitter Monitoring tool monitors jitter using synthetic UDP traffic to identify issues before they affect your real-time applications. With continuous visibility, it catches packet variations in seconds.

Measure Jitter With Minute-by-Minute Precision

Understand how much jitter is too much jitter.

Even the smallest amount of jitter greatly impacts VoIP and real-time applications. That’s why minute-by-minute monitoring is crucial to detect variations. To identify variations, you need a baseline.

Instead of waiting for variations to happen, Obkio’s Jitter Monitoring tool catches them for you, notifying you when jitter levels are too high, and allowing you to go back in time to determine when and where your applications were affected.

Do You Have Too Much Network Jitter?

Identify how much jitter is affecting your applications.

At this point, you’ll now have complete visibility of your network performance and continuous network jitter monitoring. So the next step is to identify how much jitter is happening in your network and if it is causing some dreaded lags:

YES

It looks like your network has a case of the jitterbugs!

Don’t worry, Obkio’s Jitter Monitoring tool will get to the bottom of it! If you are experiencing high jitter, you’ll want to analyze two things:

Congrats, your jitter levels look normal!

Your VoIP and video calls shouldn’t be affected. If you’re still experiencing performance issues, you can use Obkio to identify the actual source of the issue!

First: What are your jitter measurements?

Obkio's Jitter Monitoring tool offers real-time visibility into variations in packet delivery times, assisting in identifying potential disruptions to your network's performance. It goes beyond numerical data, providing a comprehensive understanding of how efficiently your data travels through digital pathways.

Jitter during a VoIP call is measured by analyzing the differences in arrival times of voice packets. Imagine you’re on a VoIP call with a customer and suddenly, their voice starts to sound a little jittery. If the expected interval between packets is 30 ms, but some packets arrive with intervals varying between 25 and 35 milliseconds, the jitter is calculated as the range of these differences, indicating the variability in packet arrival times.

Second: What is an acceptable jitter level?

Obkio guides you in establishing network jitter benchmarks tailored to your network and applications’ unique demands. Set thresholds based on how much butter is acceptable for different applications.

For example, VoIP and video conferencing require low jitter, from 1 to 20 ms, to ensure smooth and uninterrupted conversations. Jitter values below 10 ms are often considered excellent, while anything above 20 ms can start to affect call quality. For applications that are less time-critical, such as email or file transfers, jitter levels of up to 100 ms may be acceptable.

Detect & Solve High Network Jitter With Ease

Real-Time jitter monitoring to show you variations as they happen.

Latency fluctuations are what lead to jitter, and Obkio’s Jitter Monitoring tool shows you medians and averages on our monitoring graphs. Fibre optic connections with minimal jitter showcase a consistent line where minimum, average, and maximum align. But when there are variations, that’s when you have a problem. Obkio interprets this data for you, providing automated alerts so you’re never left in the dark.

Uncover the Causes of High Network Jitter

Obkio’s Network Jitter Monitoring tool dives in deep to understand the root causes.

Now that you're aware of potential jitter in your network, the next crucial step is to understand why these variations occur. Obkio's Jitter Monitoring tool is your key to unravelling the root causes of jitter, offering invaluable insights for targeted troubleshooting and resolution.

Network Congestion

Network Congestion

High traffic or overloaded pathways can lead to delays in packet delivery, causing jitter.

QoS/ SD-WAN Prioritization

QoS/ SD-WAN Prioritization

Inconsistent prioritization of data streams, often due to QoS SD-WAN settings, can lead to jitter as certain packets are delayed or prioritized over others.

Interference

Interference

Electronic interference or obstacles in wireless connections can disrupt the consistent flow of packets, resulting in jitter.

Faulty Hardware

Faulty Hardware

Malfunctioning routers, switches, or network devices can introduce irregularities in packet transmission times, contributing to jitter.

External Factors

External Factors

Environmental conditions or external influences may impact network stability, causing variations in packet delivery times and contributing to jitter.
