Cupertino, California – (The Hosting News) – October 13, 2008 – The VoIP-Data lifecycle management solution at Packet Island Inc., has been expanded with new functionality, to include video network assessments for HD telepresence deployments.
Praveen Kumar, CEO and Founder of Packet Island noted, ”Given the rising cost of travel and the broad desire to fight global warming, telepresence has huge growth potential. The one problem that could slow the momentum of this new technology is the quality of the transport networks . especially when converged media networks are used for such deployments. We have introduced the video assessment functionality to support the pioneers in this market make telepresence a quick success.”
The video assessments are performed by small 4.x5. micro-appliances deployed in each conference room location and can generate HD video traffic ranging from 10 to 25Mbps. This functionality provides for an accurate assessment of the amount of video traffic a network can handle before experiencing video quality degradation. Besides being used for pre-assessments, the micro-appliances can be permanently deployed for continuous active monitoring of the inter-conference-site links.
Packet Island creates scalable solutions that allow Enterprise IT managers and service providers to pinpoint network, signaling, or equipment based problems affecting voice quality in minutes. Solutions are available that allow 24/7 monitoring of real time traffic and signaling net flows remotely, removing the need for staffing each site of a multi-site enterprise with IT experts. Each solution features the ability to view individual calls, UDP vs TCP/IP traffic flows, dropped packet stats, QOS, jitter, and the ability to perform remote packet captures with Ethereal/wireshark interoperability to quickly diagnose or predict network issues.
