          Voice and Video Readiness
          Making the Move to VoIP?

          Get Your Network Dialed In with a Voice and Video Readiness Assessment

          PC Connection’s Voice and Video Readiness Assessment is the first step for any organization looking to implement a Voice over IP (VoIP) solution. Our assessment helps determine if your network is ready to support the real-time traffic and Quality of Service (QoS) level necessary for VoIP applications. The Voice and Video Readiness Assessment identifies potential problem areas in your network, and it includes recommendations to ensure your IT dollars produce maximum ROI while delivering the high levels of performance that VoIP demands.


          How a Voice and Video Readiness Assessment Works

          PC Connection’s Voice and Video Readiness Assessment is the perfect way to begin your Unified Communications discussion. It outlines the key issues you need to address to ensure a successful implementation.

          Our assessment evaluates your IP network by introducing simulated calls via Active QoS monitoring. It also examines your equipment to ensure that it supports QoS and industry standards such as 802.3af (Power over Ethernet).

          An assessment allows you to select the number of VoIP calls that you plan to support and demonstrates the impact that these calls have on the network via simulation—before any real-time traffic has been deployed.

          We also provide comprehensive documentation of any issues that arise during simulated calls. The assessment delivers the tools and information you need to optimize your network for real-time traffic, including a detailed QoS configuration to provide performance analysis of your complete network.


          In Order to Optimize, You Must First Analyze

          To help you understand the bigger picture, a Voice and Video Readiness Assessment will:

          • Provide a network inventory analysis
          • Analyze network QoS performance
          • Identify network issues/concerns
          • Document the network and recommend a path for simulated traffic with a Visio topology drawing
          • Compile and correlate the data collected to to offer insight into your network and its performance


          What to Expect

          1. First there is a kickoff call to review documents and schedule your assessment.
          2. Next a Voice and Video Readiness Assessment appliance is shipped to your site and remotely installed.
          3. The assessment data is gathered for 5 days.
          4. Then an engineer validates the data.
          5. After the appliance is removed and returned, we generate your reports.
          6. Finally we prepare your deliverables and recommendation document and provide an executive review of the findings.
