Tone Software and Nemertes Identify Key Management Strategies to Drive SIP and Unified Communications ROI

Tone Joins Enterprise Connect and Nemertes for an Educational Webinar on Using End-to-End Management to Ensure the Expected Convergence ROI

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - April 6, 2011) -   Tone Software, an established provider of management and monitoring solutions for converged communications, today announced that it has partnered with Enterprise Connect, the team that presents the industry's leading IP-telephony/UC/convergence events, to deliver an educational webinar titled, "SIP to Softphones: Using End to End Management to Drive Convergence ROI." The webinar will take place on Wednesday, April 13, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. PDT / 2:00 p.m. EDT.

High expectations for significant cost reductions and increased productivity make the business case for SIP and unified communications increasingly compelling. However, once deployed, turning these expectations into reality is often an extremely challenging task. SIP, UC and VoIP networks often add complexity with an array of different elements from different vendors, as well as increasing demand for voice quality, performance, capacity, support and service level compliance. 

To tackle these challenges, enterprises need end-to-end management and unified visibility over every location in the network to isolate and troubleshoot issues with QoS, performance, faults and SLAs. Deep visibility is also needed throughout the entire "stack," from the network and session layers right up through the application -- from SIP at the core to the softphone at the edge.

In this informative webinar, John Burke, principal research analyst for Nemertes Research is joined by Tone Software director of strategic technology advancement Amit Kapoor to detail what it takes to actually implement this level of unified visibility and management, the standards and tools required and how to make the business case for deploying these tools. Attendees will come away from the webinar with an action plan for specifying and deploying holistic end-to-end management that helps ensure delivery of expected ROI from SIP and UC based communications.

According to Enterprise Connect co-chair and No Jitter editor Eric Krapf, who will serve as moderator for this webinar, "As part of the Enterprise Connect Webinar series, Tone and Nemertes will provide objective, technically deep, reliable information that will be invaluable for attendees tasked with deploying SIP and UC based communications."
