The Massachusetts-based Empirix today announced that Brian Gollaher, senior product manager at Empirix will participate in a panel session entitled, "Troubleshooting IP Telephony Networks" on Tuesday, March 31.
Gollaher will discuss how voice quality monitoring solutions are used to ensure IP telephony voice quality in the enterprise and the contact center space.
While the presentation will address how using active call monitoring platforms can pinpoint a failure that has occurred, or that is about to occur, in an IP telephony network, Gollaher will also discuss multilayer monitoring. This monitoring identifies the cause of a failure to enable rapid troubleshooting and reduce the Mean Time to Resolution.

As a result, organizations can be confident that they can prevent IPT issues that could impact their businesses negatively as they offer new Unified Communications (News

In addition, Gollaher is expected to demonstrate how performance management reporting can be used to assure that service level objectives are met, identify recurring problems and prevent them in the future.
"My presentation will help delegates understand how voice quality monitoring can be used as a strategic tool to improve quality of service, maneuver through tricky telephony moments and prevent problems."
