19 Oct 2005

Presentation Examines How Large Enterprises Can Successfully Prepare for and Manage Voice-over-IP Deployments to Assure Network Availability and Quality of Service

WESTFORD, Mass., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NetScout Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: NTCT), a leading provider of network and application performance management solutions, today announced that Senior Solutions Marketing Manager Leslie Miller will present a session on performance management for converged networks at TMC's INTERNET TELEPHONY Conference & EXPO(R) Fall 2005 taking place October 24-27 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

As Voice over IP (VoIP) becomes more widely deployed, network and application performance management is more critical than ever for enterprise IT managers to ensure that key business and technical requirements, such as network availability and service quality, are met. The market for VoIP monitoring solutions is forecast to grow to more than $297 million in 2008, from $50.7 million in 2004, according to market researchers Frost & Sullivan.

Miller's presentation for the "Enterprise Traffic Management Challenges" session describes how greater visibility into networked applications enables companies to optimize delivery of converged services and discover and resolve utilization and response time issues before they impact business operations. The presentation will include an in-depth look at the internal VoIP deployment of a national cable operator. It will also outline a four-part performance management lifecycle for converged enterprise networks, including:


  • Assessing network readiness for voice traffic;
  • Planning for an effective VoIP rollout;
  • Analyzing the success and impact of the deployment; and
  • Ongoing management of a growing converged network.


Miller's presentation will take place on Thursday, October 27 from 1:15 - 2:00 p.m. in room 514, as part of the conference's Large Enterprise VoIP Deployment track.
