Monitor your geographically distributed VoIP deployment

ManageEngine releases new Distributed Edition of VQManager-version 7.0 which is highly scalable for mid and large Enterprises and Service Providers with geographically distributed locations.

VQManager Distributed Edition is built on a Central – Probe architecture. Central Server provides a centralized console UI to view the data collected periodically from all the sites(probe server installed at individual sites). With this latest release, you can monitor more than ~1000 concurrent calls spread across multiple VLANs in a single location as well as your geographically distributed VoIP network by installing multiple probes.


The

VoIP industry leaning towards SIP

1
The latest VoIP market trends show a strong inclination towards SIP(Session Initiation Protocol). It is definitely encouraging to see the VoIP industry converge toward a common standard to get rid of all the interoperability problems and pass on the true benefits of VoIP to the consumer.

Unsuccessful Calls split

Analysis has to be started once a call fails, ie an Unsuccessful call. It is almost impossible to debug each and every unsuccessful call that happens in the network so VQManager’s ‘Unsuccessful Calls split’ pie chart lists the ‘Top 10′ reasons for unsuccessful calls. In a call center or large enterprise the ‘Busy Here’ reason w

What is being cooked @VQManager – Part I

While monitoring your VoIP set-up, two high priority areas to be tracked are QoS(Quality of Service) and Call drops. In our upcoming release, we have added two new graphs which help in quicker troubleshooting of poor call quality and call drops.

1. The ‘Call Quality Trend’ graph

This new graph is a line chart plotted every hour, showing the successful calls categorized based on quality distribution [Good, Tolerable and Poor]. One can click on any of the data points and drill-down to the call list showing the calls that contributed to the bad quality and further debug by accessing individual Call Details pages. Based on the history data range chosen in the calendar, one gains insight on the call qua…

Post the H.323 release, VQManager continues to go places and this time we are accompanying a big ManageEngine team alongside dedicated ManageEngine European partners. Mark Miller’s team at VoIPPlannet and TMCnet gave us just the right beginning to our “shout-out-loud” plans on letting the VoIP world know of a truly simplified, complete, cost-effective VoIP monitoring solution ;). Now that VQManager supports most VoIP protocols in the market, we’re quickly adding features and improving on performance – expect the next product release very soon!

So Europe, we’re coming over to meet u in your neighbourhood. We’re arranging a Roadshow from Denmark to Swed…

We’ve built you a configuration wizard that’s more than just pretty.

Configuration Wizard

This screen appears when a user logs into VQManager for the first time. All first-time users can now breeze through the steps to set up VQManager to start reporting on VoIP traffic. Access the help card found on the top right corner of the wizard for more details on each screen.

Packet capture – easier now!

As we had promised, here we are with the inbuilt option to get a packet capture of your VoIP traffic for troubleshooting.

If you felt even one is more, no problemo.. Enough of the sniffer.exe… command, the option blah blah for the capture. )

Here’s how simple it is!!

As you click on the ‘Create the latest support information file‘ from the ‘Support’ tab, you get this form to fill up the details. Just check the ‘Add packet capture file to support log information’ checkbox and enter the details.

VQManager-packet-capture

Click on ‘Send’. In a few moments, the job’s done. The rest we don’t need to say, do we?? ;)

we’ll be back with more…

cheers,
