PSYTECHNICS EXTENDS VOICE PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT WITH IBM

VoiceCon, Orlando, FL: April 1, 2009 Psytechnics, a leader in performance management solu-tions for real time IP based communications, today announced that its Experience Manager so-lution will now also support IBM Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony users. Experience Manager will give Sametime Unified Telephony operations and support the ability to proactively manage and monitor voice call quality and deliver rapid, accurate diagnosis for any call quality issues. This ensures successful pilot or trial deployments, increased user confidence and adoption, as well as reduced operating costs both during deployment and once deployed.

Experience Manager’s unique user experience based approach ensures that performance man-agement and reporting for IP based telephony, including Sametime Unified Telephony in enter-prise or managed service provider (MSP) based deployments, accurately reflects the user’s real time experience. This increases user confidence with improved call quality reliability through proactive monitoring, detection, and diagnostics for user affecting issues. The Experience Man-ager solution delivers a reduction in operational and support incident overheads throughout the deployment life cycle by addressing common voice application problems including voice distortion, echo, and incorrect volume levels, as well any network induced problems across multi-vendor IP communications environments. Detailed performance reporting, analysis, and root cause diagnosis enable service levels to be maintained more effectively while reducing operating costs.

“Maintaining user confidence and effectiveness with IP based communications is essential to realize full business value and ROI while fostering a more successful collaborative environ-ment,” said Mike Hollier, CTO of Psytechnics. “Our experience with more than 1 million busi-ness IP telephony users clearly demonstrates the need for proactive management of the users’ call experience and reduced operational costs for IP based communications from the pilot or trial through to mature deployment. The required level of visibility and diagnosis for effective support is just not available from traditional network or VoIP management tools.”
“Voice quality can be affected by many different variables across the network with IP telepho-ny systems,” said Akiba Saeedi, director of unified communication and collaboration at IBM. “Using Experience Manager with Sametime Unified Telephony helps monitor and manage over-all voice quality in real time helping to reduce frustration and improve effectiveness of voice collaboration in business.”

Psytechnics is an IBM advanced business partner that has successfully worked with IBM Global Services previously on customer projects. This development is further evidence that the Psy-technics Experience Manager solution provides significant added value to IP Telephony dep-loyments and, furthermore, the addition of video conferencing and mobility management ca-pabilities ensures increased overall effectiveness as organizations further embrace a unified communications environment.
