Visual Networks, a provider of network and application performance management solutions, on Thursday announced the immediate availability of a suite of on-site Voice over IP (VOIP) readiness and monitoring services.
The new offerings utilize the company's Visual UpTime Select product, which provides real-time and historical information to enable enterprises to manage VOIP and network availability across the entire enterprise.
Visual Networks' VOIP services provide a range of diagnostic network health reports based upon real-time customer traffic that delivers an analysis of existing performance levels and bandwidth usage. The data helps enterprises to plan and optimize the performance of the wide area network for VOIPs. Among the metrics measured are round trip delay, jitter, packet delivery ratio, availability, bandwidth utilization, and granular burst analysis.
Visual Networks' services range from two-day single-site assessments to five-day multisite assessments. Enterprises also receive recommendations on suggested network changes to optimize VOIP as well as reports ranging from number of calls supported per site, circuit upgrade recommendations, service-class prioritization, and throughput measurements.
"By offering a wide range of VOIP analysis services to our existing and prospective customers, we are providing enterprises the flexibility to choose the one that best meets their varying business needs," said Larry Barker, president and CEO of Visual Networks. "Using our services, enterprises can analyze their own real-time traffic, thereby obtaining detailed evaluations of network readiness and capacity requirements before deployment or receive granular insight into current VOIP service levels," he said.
The new services are available now.
