AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2012) - The need for affordable, easy-to-use VoIP performance monitoring solutions is increasing dramatically as more organizations embrace a unified communications strategy. SolarWinds® Inc. (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced the upcoming release of SolarWinds VoIP & Network Quality Manager, formerly known as SolarWinds IP SLA Manager, to help IT professionals maintain the highest level of VoIP network performance and voice quality.
SolarWinds VoIP & Network Quality Manager monitors the performance of individual VoIP calls by analyzing call quality metrics available within the call detail record (CDR) and provides real-time alerts when critical thresholds are exceeded. Coupled with its proactive WAN performance analysis capability, VoIP & Network Quality Manager will allow IT pros to troubleshoot and solve VoIP problems faster and more effectively.
"VoIP call quality monitoring and troubleshooting are critical needs in any VoIP environment, but finding where the problem exists can be tedious and tricky if you can't see everything you need to analyze the situation," said Sanjay Castelino, VP and market leader, SolarWinds. "Now with SolarWinds VoIP & Network Quality Manager, IT pros will be able to search, filter and analyze call data with one seamless solution."
SolarWinds VoIP & Network Quality Manager can be deployed as a standalone product or fully integrated with SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM), offering IT pros the flexibility to target VoIP and WAN monitoring and troubleshooting or gain a unified view of network performance.
