The use IP Telephony has been growing rapidly in Japan and users have become very interested in obtaining objective measurements of the call quality offered by service providers. In response, the Japanese Ministry of Public Management, Home Affairs, Posts and Telecommunication specified call quality measurement and reporting via the ITU standard "R-Factor". An R-Factor is an objective transmission quality rating that is based upon the degradation caused by network impairments, such as jitter (discards), delay, and packet loss. Telchemy's VQmon/EP and VQmon/SA are the only products that produce such an R-Factor for both conversational and listener call quality, making VQmon/EP and VQmon/SA attractive solutions for the Japanese market.
