News Facts:

As organizations grow, organically or through mergers and acquisitions, they place increased importance on VoIP solutions like those offered by Avaya to keep their workforce connected.

VoIP is a high traffic application that experiences performance issues usually caused by problems on the network. Network engineers are increasingly faced with responsibility for administering VoIP infrastructures, and struggle to achieve adequate visibility into how their network and VoIP systems work together.

While various point tools are available to manage and monitor VoIP systems, voice implementation often suffers from dropped calls, poor voice quality, packet loss and latency issues.
