IP Network Assessments

At TOTLCOM, we know that Network Assessments are the key to a healthy VoIP system and thus make them a mandatory prerequisite for all VoIP implementations.

How do you know if your network infrastructure is ready for VoIP? Network Assessment.

We offer stand alone Network Assessments if your goal is to receive an objective opinion not related to a telephone system installation.

What is a Network Assessment?

We execute a series of steps to evaluate the readiness of your network for Voice over IP services.

Those steps may include the following:

  • Interview with customer of existing or required programs, applications & use of the data network.
  • Consider hardware in network infrastructure; routers, firewalls, LAN switches & cabling.
  • Analyze traffic flows in the network to determine if bandwidth issues will arise when VoIP is added to the network.
  • Deploy more complex tools like network sniffers, protocol analyzers, synthetic traffic generators & monitors over a day or week.
  • Watch and measure how the network reacts when voice traffic is simulated over the network.

The end result can be as simple as a section of the proposal or a detailed several hundred page report documenting everything to bit packet flows.
