Global Quality Assurance Program
The Global Quality Assurance Program aims to improve Access Grid sessions by improving the quality of individual Access Grid nodes. The test includes measurement of a number of metrics ensuring that the service level of an Access Grid node is at an acceptable standard. These metrics cover the categories of audio, video, networking and the use of related applications. QA tests also provide a means to disseminate good practice to node operators. Quality Assured Access Grids are highlighted within the Global Node listing.

To request a QA test of your node, please contact your local QA tester. A list of QA testers can be found here.
