Monitoring a connection between two locations

What is the smartest method for monitoring how stable a connection between two locations? 


In my company we have some problems with our video conferencing, there is a lot of disruptions and disconnections during calls.


To eleminate the posibility that our internet connection between the loacations causes the problem, I want to monitor how stable the connection  is.


At this time we have a robot running on one of the locations and none at the other. 


I'm thinking about using the url_response probe to monitor response times on a url running at the office, where we have no robot. Is there a smarter way to do it? Preferably without installing a robot on the second location.
