Solutions from NetBrain
NetBrain’s visual workbench can significantly lower the barrier for network engineers to deploy and troubleshoot VoIP networks by:
- Mapping out voice paths across a network
- Measuring VoIP-related performance such as Delay, Jitter and Packet Loss across a live network
- Analyzing VoIP-related design, including QOS, Dial-Plan etc
- Providing VoIP-specific troubleshooting assistance
Map Out Voice Path across a Network
Leveraging NetBrain’s live discovery capability, both L3 and L2 VoIP paths can be mapped out in mere seconds. For VoIP assessment, a traffic path can be computed via simulation based on configuration files.
Map Out Voice Path in L3 and L2
Measure VoIP Metrics Such as Delay, Jitter and Packet Loss
Select two Cisco routers along the VoIP traffic path and launch the IPSLA toolkit to emulate VoIP traffic across a live network. Real-time packet drop, delay and jitter can be collected for VoIP readiness analysis, or for voice quality troubleshooting.
IPSLA Use Emulated Traffic to Measure Live Network
Analyze Network Design of VoIP
Simply zoom-in on the data-driven map to reveal network design such as routing, traffic filtering, etc. For VoIP related design, including advanced QOS and dial-plan configuration, use NetBrain’s Design Reader – a configuration analyzer based on customizable templates. Network consultants or senior network engineers will likely write their own design filters to help other people to understand enterprise-specific VoIP design.
VoIP and QOS Design is Analyzed via Design Reader
Speed up VoIP Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting can be sped up even further through the utilization of the customizable VoIP troubleshooting guide in the sample page of the NetBrain Design Reader. Network operational groups can receive on-demand help on what to do when troubleshooting such complex VoIP technology. NetBrain can further automate the execution of show-commands from its data-driven map.
