VoIP within the enterprise is increasingly being considered for the significant benefits that can be obtained, however few organisations really understand their technical environment to the point where a successful rollout of VoIP can be assured.
, a market leader in network management systems and VoIP management solutions aims to change that. "As an independent expert in network management systems, we are not a provider of IP telephony or VoIP" said Peter von Dietze, Head of sales at Torokina. "As such we can offer an unbiased opinion on the readiness of a clients network and associated IT environment for a VoIP implementation, prior to actual roll out"
One of the biggest challenges facing significant take up of VoIP in the Australian enterprise is an understanding of exactly what can impact a production VoIP environment, and why so many have failed. This lack of understanding causes many potential corporate VoIP users to remain skeptical, who in turn are hesitant to entrust the core communication channel with clients to VoIP.
"Our free VoIP readiness assessment is a component of a larger offering Torokina has in managing VoIP and IP Telephony environments, said David burns, head of Integration at Torokina. ‘We see too many clients looking for management solutions after having already implemented a VoIP environment, where the business units are questioning reliability and quality. A quality VoIP deployment really needs three components, Initial readiness assessment, a solid VoIP security policy, and ongoing performance management of both the network, and IP Telephony components. The Torokina solution for VoIP and IP Telephony covers all three aspects"
"Torokina’s assessment uses simulated voice traffic flowing through the network between endpoints, and produces information on core metrics, such as latency, jitter, and MOS values. This allows an organization to understand the environments capabilities at different times, and under different work loads. This is a critical pre-deployment requirement that is all too often overlooked." said Mr Burns.
Torokina expects a significant take up of the assessment service, for both the no charge smaller assessments, as well as the larger, more comprehensive service. For more information, contact Peter von Dietze at Torokina Networks, or go to Torokina Networks
