Internet Protocol Service Level Agreement (IP SLA) technology offers a cost-effective and efficient response to the needs of enterprises of all sizes. However, network managers face more than the simple question of whether organisation’s network is up or down. They need to know specific quality of service measurements for the organisation’s network. SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager gives users the tools to quickly test the fitness of their current network, and then determine and track quality of service on their network over time. It also generates synthetic VoIP traffic using Cisco IP SLA technology and facilitates capacity planning and measurement of voice quality in advance of new VoIP deployments. But that’s not all! SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager tracks key edge router and switch statistics and helps keep a close eye on site-to-site WAN performance.
Key features of SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager
Quality of Service (QoS) Monitoring with Cisco IP SLA Operations
SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager uses Cisco IP SLA operations to measure network performance. Specifically, IP SLA operations provide immediate insight into network Quality of Service (QoS), including packet loss, latency, jitter, and mean opinion score (MOS) metrics. SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager collects IP SLA data and then presents it in the easy-to-use Web Console environment. With SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager and IP SLA operations, users can know at a glance exactly how well their network is and has been performing.
VoIP Phone Troubleshooting
SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager uses Call Detail Records (CDR) and Call Management Records (CMR) data from users call managers to help them identify possible affected calls and patterns of affected calls. CDR/CMR data provides region information per call record in addition to the call source and destination, MOS, latency, packet loss, termination call code, and more. With SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager, users can drill in to problem areas to start identifying the underlying problems.
VoIP and WAN Capacity Planning
SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager generates synthetic VoIP traffic using Cisco IP SLA technology to facilitate capacity planning and measure voice quality in advance of new VoIP deployments.
Custom Charts and Gauges
SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager provides easy-to-read charts and gauges that users can customise to suit their monitoring requirements. Users can quickly determine the current status and performance of their network using custom gauges of key IP SLA metrics such as jitter, latency, packet loss, and MOS. With custom charts, users can easily track the historical performance of all the paths on their network.
Intelligent VoIP & WAN Performance Alerts
SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager enables users to create custom alerts for their network in the same way users create alerts and actions in SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor. Specifically, users can configure IP SLA-related alerts with a variety of corresponding actions to notify them of events on their network. This enables the users to be the first to know when performance thresholds are crossed or when an issue arises.
VoIP and Network Quality Manager provides real-time and historical statistics reporting for the IP SLA-specific network statistics. Moreover, the tool makes it easy to generate custom VoIP and WAN performance reports using out-of-the-box templates that can be adjusted with a few mouse clicks, automating report creation and distribution.
