Nectar Announces Real-Time Quality of Service Management

CMP/Perspective Creates Synthetic Voice Calls to Track QoS

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - October 15, 2009) - Nectar Services Corp., an IP communications services firm and wholly owned subsidiary of Juma Technology Corp. (OTCBB: JUMT), today announced a new module for its Converged Management Platform (nectar/CMP).

The latest monitoring and management feature, labeled CMP/Perspective, tracks Quality of Service (QoS) for network applications such as voice and video in real-time.

Edmond Baydian, Chief Services Officer for Nectar, called supporting real-time applications in a converged network "a moving target," noting the various internal and external resources that can affect QoS in an environment. He said the new module takes the guess work out of QoS performance.

"Managing real-time applications within a wide area network is extremely challenging, especially when it comes to ensuring that traffic flows and applications traverse the network according to set priorities," said Baydian. "Because these applications run live within a complex framework, it becomes an arduous task to guarantee that QoS tags are always in line with network policies.

"Instances such as a breakdown in team communication or erroneous configuration change have the potential to render QoS ineffective," said Baydian.

The CMP/Perspective module simulates real traffic situations 24/7. These synthetic transactions provide network operators with the visibility needed to measure issues that can affect quality such as jitter, latency and packet loss.

Building on CMP's distributed agent model, the Perspective feature captures QoS from various reaches within a wide area network and presents the data on a single, company-wide dashboard.

"In a traditional network, it is difficult to identify when your QoS policies are not being honored. Network operators are often blind to a problem until it becomes service affecting. With CMP/Perspective, we give them sight."

CMP/Perspective Highlights:

--  Spot partial MPLS cloud problems using a meshed test approach
--  Use synthetic voice transactions to simulate branch-to-branch or
    branch-to-office call flows
--  Model data applications that require QoS
--  "Always on" testing for QoS metric settings
--  Centrally view real-time and historical measurements
--  Central administration of synthetic transaction sessions
