troubleshooting information.
Table 2: Changes to Voice Quality Metrics
Metric Change
Conceal Ratio and Conceal Seconds increase

is poor.

MOS LQK scores increase significantly
Voice quality metrics do not account for noise or distortion, only frame loss.

Cisco IP Phone Cleaning

To clean your Cisco IP Phone, use only a dry soft cloth to gently wipe the phone and the phone screen. Do
not apply liquids or powders directly to the phone. As with all non-weatherproof electronics, liquids and
powders can damage the components and cause failures.
Voice Quality Troubleshooting Tips
Network impairment from packet loss or high jitter.
• Noise or distortion in the audio channel such as
echo or audio levels.
• Tandem calls that undergo multiple
encode/decode such as calls to a cellular network
or calling card network.
• Acoustic problems coming from a speakerphone,
handsfree cellular phone or wireless headset.
Check packet transmit (TxCnt) and packet receive
(RxCnt) counters to verify that voice packets are
Network impairment from packet loss or high jitter
• Average MOS LQK decreases may indicate
widespread and uniform impairment.
• Individual MOS LQK decreases may indicate
bursty impairment.
Cross-check the conceal ratio and conceal seconds
for evidence of packet loss and jitter.
• Check to see if the phone is using a different
codec than expected (RxType and TxType).
• Check to see if the MOS LQK version changed
after a firmware upgrade.
