Adoption of VoIP is rapidly increasing in global enterprises that are eager to experience the benefits of IP communications, including cost savings, extended communication capabilities and integration.
TruView Live makes it easier for IT managers to routinely and continuously test the quality and availability of VoIP capabilities and offers a dashboard that tracks testing results. VoIP monitoring is the latest capability to be offered under the TruView Live cloud-based network monitoring service.
Daryle DeBalski, vice president and general manager of the Fluke Networks Enterprise business unit at NETSCOUT commented: ‘Like so many of today’s applications, VoIP can be deployed on premise or hosted in a hybrid environment. Regardless of how it is deployed in the network, VoIP calling needs to work flawlessly for all enterprise users, all of the time. Unfortunately, most users have had a negative experience with their VoIP systems in the past. TruView Live gives IT managers the tools they need to identify and resolve potential issues before they even affect the user.’
The new VoIP monitoring capability in TruView Live uses active, synthetic testing to let customers check their SIP-based VOIP systems for call availability (“can I make a phone call?”) and call quality (“is the call quality good?”). To perform this check, TruView Live sets up network Pulses that act as a phone to place an actual phone call. During the call, TruView Live plays music, allowing the system to measure Mean Opinion Score (MOS), loss, latency, and jitter. IT managers can determine whether to set up the tests between two pulses or locations (a Pulse-to-Pulse call) or to an external number for their hosted or on premise VoIP system. Following testing, MOS test results are displayed in performance graphs and alerts are issued based on customer-specific thresholds.
