NetSocket CEM and Microsoft Lync Solutions Assure Exceptional Enterprise-Class Unified Communications

NetSocket, a leading provider of network service assurance solutions for unified communications (UC) in enterprise and service provider environments, today announced its collaboration with Microsoft in fully implementing the Microsoft Lync® Network Diagnostics API for Lync 2013 and 2010 environments. The latest version of its Cloud Experience Manager (CEM) delivers comprehensive, real-time visibility into IP network issues that could impact Lync users’ experience, enabling UC managers to quickly anticipate, isolate and remediate network-based UC problems. NetSocket CEM reduces problem resolution time by more than 70 percent, for a significantly lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and a superior Lync user experience.

NetSocket’s patented IP Correlation Engine® fully supports the Microsoft Lync Network Diagnostics API, a new and unique Microsoft Lync real-time service assurance API, to provide real-time, hop-by-hop IP topology path identification and recording of all media streams for all Lync voice and video calls. The real-time identification of specific route paths for each call allows IT support staff to correlate a user’s complaint to the likely root cause of service degradation more accurately and faster than has ever been possible before. NetSocket is the first IP network service assurance provider to deploy this new Microsoft Lync API in a real-time solution for distributed enterprises.

Offering more than just monitoring, CEM provides complete IP network information, automatically correlating session, content and topology data. CEM delivers immediate insight into the underlying IP networks that support Microsoft Lync environments without using costly probes throughout the network or burdening the performance of all UC elements with post-event diagnostics traces.

CEM’s UC service assurance management interface provides proactive and intuitive network service management through a single-pane-of-glass view that allows IT support personnel to rapidly execute diagnostic workflows upon receipt of service complaints. CEM’s interface and workflow structure allows a much greater percentage of UC service cases to be quickly managed by IT operations and support personnel without requiring a higher level of expert resources. CEM also supports manager-of-manager applications such as Microsoft System Center, delivering key performance indicator alerts and other service-related data to unified management solutions.

NetSocket’s powerful IP Correlation Engine, with its automatic correlation of all IP network data, fully supports the Microsoft Lync Network Diagnostics API to provide a complete picture of the Lync user experience. Within seconds, CEM isolates the faults of a service degradation event and, through its informative graphical user interface, provides both real-time and historical IP network information for any call, enabling root cause identification for all calls affected by an event.

“CEM optimizes Microsoft Lync UC service management and users’ experience by providing immediate insight into the IP network issues that could impact a Microsoft Lync user’s experience,” said John White, CEO and president of NetSocket. “NetSocket is leading the way in supporting the Microsoft Lync platform and assuring exceptional unified communications, providing further reductions in enterprise and managed service provider TCO.”

DXWordEXPO New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
In this presentation, you will learn first hand what works and what doesn't while architecting and deploying OpenStack. Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
Security, data privacy, reliability and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house client hosted environments to a cloud platform. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Vandana Viswanathan, Associate Director at Cognizant, In this session, will provide an orientation to the five stages required to implement a cloud hosted solution validation strategy.
