The global view enabled by a Software Defined Network (SDN) architecture allows us to observe the contribution of each congested router to the overall Mean Opinion Score (MOS) degradation of a VoIP service. Thus, when a number of routers in the path may add to the MOS degradation, the SDN controller can quantify the contribution from each router. This work presents the implementation of a network monitoring system for OpenFlow protocol aware enterprise VoIP networks. The presented solution enables network administrators and developers to access on demand information about intermediate packet loss and MOS for real-time applications. The main contribution of this work is an out-of-the-box architecture to enable users to find the exact location of quality degradation with a small operational cost.
