Quality of Service (QoS)
VoIP provides the capability of HD Voice
Why not use it? If your business relies on call quality, you need QoS. It will keep a garbled or dropped call from leading to a loss of a customer, the deal or your credibility. With Swordfish, you get quality of service on your office phone system as a standard feature.
What is QoS?
QoS stands for quality of service, and is an industry-wide set of standards and mechanisms used to ensure high-quality performance for critical applications which, in the case of a communications system, includes HD voice and video. Learn why quality of service from Swordfish is a true competitive advantage.
Swordfish Quality of ServiceGoes Beyond the Network and Touches Every Aspect of our Solutions
We Make Quality of Service Work
Add elevated QoS to your broadband or other network connection. We apply SD-WAN technology to UCaaS to elevate quality of service for your mission-critical communications.
Swordfish offers services from the largest network providers in the country with intelligently engineered quality of service that ensures high-priority voice with 99.999% uptime reliability.
Why Do You Need It?
Voice or video data sent through an IP system is broken into thousands of data packets which travel through your network without the need or cost of a dedicated phone line. This data is reassembled as a call, conference or video. QoS is achieved when unified communications have sufficient bandwidth, jitter is controlled, latency and data loss are reduced and MOS is optimized.
- What is latency? The time it takes a voice packet to reach its destination is called latency or delay. Too much delay can create an echo on the line or causes parties to talk over each other.
- What is jitter? Jitter is the variation of delay between packets. The human ear can handle consistent delay between packets but when the information jumps, we may hear garbled audio.
- What is packet loss? Information packets can also be dropped. When this happens, data will be missing when it has being reassembled at its destination.
- What is MOS? MOS (Mean Opinion Score) is a measure of how humans perceive the quality of the voice call calculated based on industry standard benchmarks including average latency, delay and jitter.
The Swordfish platform is designed to minimize latency, jitter and packet loss while maximizing MOS.
Swordfish Takes QoS to the Next LevelIn fact, we take it to all the levels.
In the Network
We have designed, deployed and continually develop our platform. It provides QoS with multiple carriers by finding the best and highest quality route automatically. It also allows multiple last mile connections from redundant providers which greatly enhances QoS.
At the Premise Edge
Swordfish provides our on premise appliance for voice QoS, traffic shaping and active, real time management to make sure that “voice always wins” and you experience the highest voice quality possible. We also provide, or work with, other devices as necessary to exceed our client’s quality expectations.
In the Local Area Network
Unlike most UCaaS vendors, Swordfish provides current generation LAN switches with our solutions that provide power over Ethernet, VLAN tagging and management capabilities required to deliver true QoS. We also work with and know how to configure every major LAN switch if you already have current generation switching equipment that meets industry QoS requirements.
At the Desktop
Swordfish solutions come with state of the art phones from the top suppliers in the industry. We have deep relationships with the manufacturers and know how to configure every device so as to provide the best quality of service as well as the most features.

When our old phone system started to die on us, we needed an entire technology refresh fast! Swordfish replaced the equipment in a very short time frame while keeping us in business. That’s what I call disaster avoidance. They are the best!Dale West
