Calls Dropping

I just recently took over the IT for my company.  They have been having many issues with ringcentral service.  Calls will just drop throughout the day.  They will be on a call with a customer and the line goes dead.  Occasionally calls will have other quality issues also.  Most of the issues are with them dropping.  I reached out to their customer service and gave them a whole bunch of data from tests they had me run.  The final test I ran was to ping google from a cmd line, while I was running a speed test.  When the speed test was checking download speeds, my latency went from around 33ms --> up to 139ms.  Their customer service said my issue is with comcast and to contact them.  Does this seem like a latency issue?  Or is it Ring Central just pushing the issues to comcast?

Hello James,  Based on what you described above, it does sound like there may be a latency issue, but there's not enough data above to tell for sure.  Do you have a case number, or can you tell us what the main phone number on the account is?

Thanks Mike for responding.  Case #03531613.  I have done my different types of tests, including the Qos and capacity tests form ring central.  All seem to show everything is fine.  I tried to dig in a little deeper and analyse the voip traffic using WireShark.  The SIP traffic shows alot of Errors.  Most of the calls dropped show a CANCEL then SIP 487 Request Terminated .  Not sure if this matters.

Thank you James,  I'll need to review the case notes to get a full understanding of the issue. The most recent note was with regard to contacting/reporting the latency issue to your ISP. Have you had a chance to do this yet?

OK Thanks. Be sure to update the case notes when you are done speaking with your ISP.  They are waiting for confirmation that they can fix the latency issue.

Spoke w/ Comcast.  They didn't find any latency issues according to their tests.  They want to do a modem swap of course.  So according to them, it's not on their side. So frustrating...

Let us know after you get the new modem installed and test it again. If there's latency on the download side (which I can see there was),  they should be able to help you with that.
