Make Sure The Network Is Ready for That Call

Unified Communications, Collaboration and VoIP solutions are pervasive and mission-critical to most enterprises today. They also remain difficult and complex to manage, monitor, and ensure acceptable service levels.

The shift to cloud-driven Unified-Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) offerings like Microsoft Teams, Slack and Skype for Business makes it even more difficult to diagnose.

Where Existing VoIP and UC Monitoring Solutions Fail

  • Traditional tools that rely on Call Data Records are latent, slow, reactive and useless
    What good is a CDR from a call last week? You need proactive monitoring to find and fix problems before the important conference call. Not after.
  • Network changes demand before and after baselining of Quality of Service and end-to-end call quality
    Network changes are the bane of IT’s existence, things break when changes are made and you need proactive diagnostics in place BEFORE the change. So you can see if somethings broken.
  • Traditional tools have no visibility outside the network you own
    As the adoption of UCaaS grows, the importance of the Internet and networks beyond your control grows exponentially. Tools to assist with seeing what is happening beyond your firewall become critical.
  • Insight Into Major Cloud Platforms is Required
    Usage of collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams, Slack and Skype for Business has exploded and replaced traditional PSTN and VoIP sub-systems. End-to-end availability monitoring for the platforms is required.

Growth of Unified Collaboration Solutions

The growth of Unified Collaborations-as-a-Service (UCaaS) solutions like Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Slack and Zoom has shifted UC/VoIP traffic from internal to external. This cloud shift puts pressure on different parts of the network than legacy VoIP/PSTN/on-premises solutions like from Cisco and Avaya.

According to a study by Transparency Market Research, the UCaaS market is poised to reach US $79 billion by the end of 2024 and represents an incredible compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 15%.

This growth in the UCaaS market is attributable to business value of the tools. Most UCaaS platforms incorporate email, voicemail, phone calls, text messaging and external communications, all integrated into a single unified solution. Unified communications are a fantastic accelerator for business and enable faster project completion and joint project management.
