Provide reliable, high-quality voice and video that drives adoption and user satisfaction over an optimally configured network
How well your network performs is key to the success of your voice and video solution deployment. For your employees to receive consistently high quality experiences, you want to be sure your network is ready to manage and support voice and video traffic.
By assessing your network’s performance before you deploy a Polycom solution, you can identify in advance any areas that may affect the performance of your solution.
Polycom is a leading expert in the requirements for high-performance voice and video traffic over an IP network. As such, it offers Network Readiness Services designed to share our knowledge with your network or IT team.
This service may follow the Design phase and, if applicable, will use your design plan to review your intended deployment and network design and compare them to Polycom best practices. Then, our consultants will identify any areas where you need to make changes.
These services utilize a test tool that analyzes the current implementation to identify areas where the network cannot consistently provide high-quality support.
By using the Network Readiness Services, you can:
These services analyze your network for best practices and actual performance in supporting the low loss, latency and jitter requirements needed to support high quality real time media for Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) solutions, and provides a report indicating the status of the network and a remediation plan for work that should be done to correct any issues discovered during the assessment.
Polycom Network Readiness Services include two key components:
1. Network Assessment Essentials focuses on workshops and the planning activities to help you prepare for delivering real-time media solutions to end users. It includes
2. Network Assessment Advanced leverages hands on analysis and simulation of real-time media on your network to examine its current performance as well as modeling its potential to support the planned workloads.
The Polycom Network Assessment Advanced Service can be delivered separately for those organizations who have gone through a Skype Operations Framework Network Assessment Essentials engagement as part of an Office 365 Cloud PBX or PSTN Conferencing migration and require a deeper examination of the actual performance, modeling expected traffic, or deeper guidance than the Network Assessment Essentials activities include.
The key deliverables for these network services are a written report and a meeting in which the report is presented and discussed. The report will include a review of each of the areas described above, identify shortfalls in the current deployment based on current best practices, and comment on the potential impact and severity of impact on the delivery of consistent high quality UCC services.
