This paper describes an implementation for monitoring the QoS and expecting the QoE of a voice communication in a Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) based telecommunication environment. The resulting QoS parameters are evaluated; the QoE is determined with the E-Model and processed for graphical presentation. With the use of some open-source programming libraries, the presented prototype can be a helpful alternative for expensive measurement devices and is ready to be deployed in a widespread Telecom environment at low cost.
