      Description

      Need a way to detect quality of VoIP providers (or
      rather, *'s connection to them) and block use if
      quality is too low.
       
      This will be implemented with a flag in the * db, like
      BLOCKTRUNK/{trunknum} 1. Dialout macro will look at
      this flag, and skip dialing that trunk (go on to the
      next priority trunk in the route) if it exists. (thanks
      to Ferrari_ for suggestions) (anyone have a better
      alternative to 'BLOCKTRUNK'?)
       
      Metrics of the link can be determined with something
      simple like ping/jitter, and a threshold.. optimally I
      suppose, would be a loopback and some way of detecting
      the quality returned.. this would be much more complex
      to implement, and hard logistically to make it work
      anywhere in the world (availability of loopback,
      connectivity of voip provider, endpoint (PSTN, another
      * box, some other voip system?)).
       
      should there be an interface on the trunk config screen? 
       
      [ ] Monitor connection quality
          Don't use if ping time is over ___ms [AND/OR]
      varies by more than ___ms. 
       
       
      There would just be a script that ran every minute/5
      minutes/whatever that would run the metric tests, and
      block connections as approiate. Using this method,
      current calls using the channel would not be
      interrupted, just new calls.
       
      Looking for any additional feedback before I implement
      this feature (hopefully sometime next week.. probably
      inversely proportional in time to the amount my VoIP
      providers piss me off..)

        Take a look at this:

        If there's a way to implement this, theoretically you can monitor the audio quality of the call.
