Ipanema Technologies provider of integrated WAN Optimization solutions announced its capability to optimize VoIP, videoconferencing and telepresence solutions with its Automatic Networking System.
Videoconferencing and IP Telephony depend on WAN capabilities using the same protocol set for carrying data, using Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP). Being real-time by nature applications using RTP generates network flows which are sensitive to network delay, loss and jitter, said Ipanema (News - Alert).
Also voice and video have brought about changes in the communications model across the WAN. Calls and conferences allow communications which take place between branches and not between a branch and a datacenter like in other applications. Such real-time meshed flows need next generation WAN optimization technologies which will enhance their performance besides making them easy to handle like other business critical applications.
Ipanema said that its Automatic Networking System will improve the performance of VoIP and videoconferencing as all the features are automatic and they can also scale up to manage large deployments as well.
The system can dynamically recognize voice or video RTP flows including their CODEC which applies tailored performance objectives. Ipanema Networking System enables global optimization of the traffic mix by dynamically managing competition between the flows across the network including the branch to branch and branch to datacenter communications.
Application performance is optimized by the Ipanema system eliminating uncertainty in both voice and video traffic without requiring static bandwidth reservations for different traffic types. Also the system’s optimization mechanisms offer required bandwidth for each active user without delay, jitter and loss.
Ipanema’s Application Quality Score (AQS) ensures precise reporting on the WAN contribution to the quality of experience. Including one way delay, loss and jitter and other network impairments the AQS offers perfect video quality monitoring. Also the Rightsizing capability of Ipanema system delivers accurate information on the real bandwidth requirements for critical business applications like voice and video flows.
Voice, video and other business critical applications’ performance is ensured across the whole converged WAN whatever happens in the network. The network is aligned with the business goals of the company irrespective of the application mix and traffic matrix complexity assured Ipanema.
The system also ensures telecommunications cost control besides understanding and reporting on the WAN contribution to voice and video quality of user experience. Further the WAN as a predictable asset for the enterprise to depend on is ensured by the networking system, said the company.
