Martello Vantage DX Extends Insight into the Microsoft Teams User Experience with AudioCodes SBC Reporting and New Dashboards
Microsoft-recommended modern workplace optimization SaaS expands capabilities in new release.
OTTAWA, ON, Sept. 20, 2022 /CNW/ – Martello Technologies Group Inc., (“Martello” or the “Company”) ( TSXV: MTLO), a leading developer of enterprise digital experience monitoring solutions that optimize the Microsoft Modern Workplace, announced today the launch of Vantage DX V3.7. This release provides enterprise IT and unified communications (UC) teams with end-to-end visibility into each part of the Microsoft Teams user’s call path with the addition of AudioCodes session border controller (SBC) monitoring. To instantly identify the most critical issues impacting users, V3.7 also includes out of the box Microsoft Teams Performance Overview Dashboards.
Microsoft Teams is the world-leading collaboration and productivity tool for today’s hybrid workforce with more than 270 million monthly active users, and more than 12 million of these users now make voice calls using Microsoft Teams Phone across VoIP and PSTN. In a January 2022 report, Gartner predicted that by 2024, 20% of total Microsoft Teams active users will adopt telephony services for external calling on Teams.
The users’ experience with Microsoft Teams is only as good as the network and IT environment it operates in. There is a critical visibility gap when it comes to delivering a stellar Microsoft Teams user experience; organizations lack an end-to-end picture of what problems are happening, what is causing the problems and who is affected. This challenge becomes even more pronounced in Microsoft Teams Phone environments, with PSTN, SBCs, Internet Service Providers (ISPs), network architecture and siloed IT teams all increasing the complexity of service delivery.
Today’s release of the Microsoft-recommended Vantage DX monitoring and optimization SaaS for Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365 takes aim at this problem, with deeper visibility into the most critical issues impacting users, to eliminate guesswork and resolve problems faster. New features in Vantage DX V3.7 include:
- End-to-end insight into each part of the user’s call path by correlating the AudioCodes SBC call detail reports with Microsoft Teams call quality analytics. The new AudioCodes integration also proactively detects Jitter, RTT or Packet Loss for all Microsoft Teams calls using AudioCodes SBC to prevent network problems from affecting the user experience. These capabilities make it easier to identify which network owner (internal, ISP, third party) is responsible for any network related issue.
- Out of the box Microsoft Teams Performance Overview Dashboards to instantly identify the most critical issues impacting users.
- Top Affected Users and Top Affected Locations help focus IT resources on the most critical issues.
- Global Heat Map shows regions experiencing the highest volume of poor calls, to identify how widespread a problem is and whether a local network or ISP issue is responsible.
- All Good, Poor or Failed calls are identified by call type (Teams Call, Teams Meeting, Teams PSTN).
Customer Berry Bros. & Rudd, a British wine and spirits merchant chose Vantage DX to get the visibility they were previously lacking into the Microsoft Teams user experience. “Often users don’t report a poor experience, they simply grow accustomed to subpar calls”, said Chris Brown, Head of Service Delivery for Berry Bros. & Rudd. “After deploying Vantage DX, not only were we able to more quickly identify the cause of user-reported problems, but we were also able to use the dashboards in Vantage DX to see which users were having a consistently poor experience. This meant we could proactively address the problems impacting these individuals and offer them a better, more productive user experience”. Read the Berry Bros. & Rudd Case Study.
“Martello’s longstanding expertise in unified communications performance analytics has helped us differentiate Vantage DX as the tool of choice for managing the Microsoft Teams Telephony user experience”, said John Proctor, President and Chief Executive Officer of Martello. “Working with Microsoft and its Operator Connect partners we are continuously expanding the capabilities of Vantage DX to ensure it meets the unique needs of enterprise IT teams providing their users with external Teams calling.”
