As network complexity increases, downtime can seem inevitable. Each year, companies lose $26.5 billion in revenue due to IT downtime – either planned or unplanned. When there are critical application failures on the network the costs can hit a staggering 1 million dollars per hour lost in Fortune 1000 companies.

Pinpointing the source of a voice quality problem is among the greatest challenges for telecom professionals and isolating the issue takes time and eats up valuable resources. Resolving problems quickly requires end-to-end remote monitoring of the network – and to effectively manage voice quality, a solution that combines UC and network management is critical. Tools that alert IT professionals to problems and identify their source quickly lead to a dramatic decrease in downtime.
