Critical Answers

You've considered moving to or upgrading your existing Voice over IP (VoIP) solution, but you're unsure of the impact IP telephony will have on your network or team's work flow. Before adopting anything new, it's critical that you first understand the state of your existing network. Quest can help you identify current limitations and restrictions so your company can plan accordingly.

Examination and Practical Simulation

To identify potential hiccups and define the most efficient VoIP transition, Quest reviews your network's capability to support Voice over IP by simulating and measuring user experience. Using RISC Network's Traffic Sim tool, Quest:

  • Simulates VoIP media traffic using constant packet rates and sizes that mimic specific VoIP Codecs (such as G.711 or G.729)
  • Applies separate quality measurements and profiles to each type of packet flow
  • Provides detailed insight into 3 key metrics - jitter, loss, and latency - on each of the simulations performed, with well-defined, easy-to-evaluate thresholds

Actionable Documentation

Following evaluation and simulation, Quest provides a high-level overview of your network performance. Armed with such information, you can toss yesterday's outdated technology and embrace newer, more efficient features that better complement your organization's competency.
