announces the availability of its latest planned product release to enhance the company's successful Maestro system. The NetSymphony Maestro product is an active testing and monitoring solution for monitoring and managing the full life cycle of VoIP deployments. NetSymphony is helping to ensure trouble-free VoIP installations and high-quality voice services. The Maestro product provides an independent plug and play testing layer for company networks that observes but does not impact existing network hardware or software or other network testing equipment.
Maestro Product Release 1.02 adds numerous high-value analysis, monitoring and management features to further complement the already strong and effective M10P IP endpoint that self-installs and automatically begins testing once the Ethernet cable is connected. The M10P endpoint is the size of a candy bar, making it the smallest such testing product available. The product delivers value starting with pre-deployment testing and continuing on as long as needed to support your VoIP deployment and its ongoing management and service assurance.
Maestro's innovative architecture and M10P IP endpoints enable VoIP service providers, IP telephony manufacturers, enterprises and system integrators to assess, monitor and troubleshoot networks remotely, cost effectively and with non-expert technicians. The Maestro solution covers the entire life cycle from pre-deployment testing through day-two management of VoIP services by leveraging test endpoints placed on IP and PSTN networks to measure call setup and voice quality performance while allowing deep visibility into the end-user's quality of experience. These test and measurement endpoints can be deployed to test on and/or off net segments and support both packet and analog network interfaces.
Maestro Product Release 1.02 feature highlights include:
- The M10P IP endpoint tests both inter-location and intra-location,
providing enhanced site assessment and fault isolation for multi-location
- Two-wire analog endpoints providing packet-to-analog performance
monitoring and fault isolation across SIP/PSTN gateways.
- Consistent voice quality scoring for packet and analog interfaces,
providing an objective comparison of before and after testing of analog-to-
- SIP call setup performance monitoring providing early warning of
server or network congestion issues.
- Enhanced packet loss, jitter and delay performance monitoring for
every test call, providing additional fault isolation information.
- Reachability and delay performance monitoring from all IP endpoints to
critical components via ping tests.
- STUN testing and reporting to determine the suitability of existing
NAT routers and to resolve problems commonly found when using NAT routers
