January 30, 2013
Radvision has announced the availability of eVident, a package of comprehensive video network readiness and monitoring tools.
Enterprises and service providers are expected to benefit from the intelligent monitoring that eVident provides. Company officials said that intelligent monitoring will help them ensure the network readiness, before and after the deployment of voice and video applications.
“eVident helps take the guesswork out of IP audio and video deployments while ensuring a high quality video experience in even the largest deployments,” said to Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research.
eVident’s main components are network readiness assessments, with features like PreVideo; real-time voice and video monitoring, RVMON; and quality measurement and analysis; VQInsider. Company officials said that PreVideo enables network administrators to test their networks. Moreover, it also helps them to determine if they are ready for voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and HD video conferencing, prior to deployment.
In addition, it also offers continuous network monitoring of media, which enables detection of faults that may hamper the use of application. Plus, it ensures quality of experience (QoE) for users.
Delivering software-based network monitoring, the newest offering helps organizations avoid network degradation, which leads to poor or distorted images or audio, packet loss and delay, according to company officials.
RVMON continuously collects and analyses audio and video metrics of conferences throughout the entire installation, providing real time QoE monitoring. In addition to helping define usage trends, the bandwidth monitoring also helps define usage trends and traffic routing patterns.
And, for quantification of voice and video quality, VQInsider provides in-depth measurement and analysis of the user experience. It identifies the cause of quality issues as well as provides improvement options via detailed reports from non-intrusive examination of network and audio/video codec parameters, said company officials. Thanks to this, companies can develop maintain HD video conferencing applications and services.
“Radvision eVident enables organizations to pre-assess the readiness of their network for IP audio and video traffic, and supports ongoing, real-time monitoring of the data network and audio/video experience,” Weinstein said.
Radvision, an Avaya company, is a provider of video conferencing and telepresence technologies over IP and wireless networks.
Earlier this month, the company announced that this week it’ll launch its newest video collaboration solutions ideal for businesses of any size.
