Monitoring, Diagnostics and Reporting for Remote Cisco Collaboration Users

Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM) has a history of providing reliable, secure, scalable, and manageable UC call control to large numbers of global enterprises. Nectar has been a long-time preferred Cisco solution partner providing customers the third-party UC monitoring, diagnostics and reporting tools needed to provide a centralized performance management view with real-time troubleshooting.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a transformational era of remote worker collaboration enabling new scenarios for end-users, but also posing new challenges to IT ops and support teams who struggle to gain visibility into all the elements that may be contributing to session health and user experience.

In this webinar we’ll address probing issues including:

•Real-time and historic media/signaling analysis of Cisco voice and video sessions
•Monitoring Cisco Expressway for Mobile and Remote Access
•Monitoring VPN users at the Edge/VPN Concentrator
•Overall CUCM Platform health and availability monitoring

  • Microsoft Teams PSTN Calling: Testing and Troubleshooting Aug 19 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Tim Armstrong, Ken Lasko
    Advanced troubleshooting, analytics and testing for Microsoft Phone System calling using Microsoft Teams Direct Routing or Microsoft Calling Plans.

    Organizations have been migrating to cloud-based collaboration and calling services, such as Microsoft Teams, at a record-setting pace in response to the work-from-home scenarios created by the global Covid-19 pandemic. Microsoft offers two options for connecting a Teams environment to the PSTN to enable inbound and outbound calling for end-users; Microsoft Direct Routing or Microsoft Calling Plans.

    Both options for bringing PSTN to the Teams service involve trade-offs producing both benefits and challenges. However, one common challenge that enterprise support and operations teams face is having visibility into the telephony-related performance, quality and availability issues.

    Cloud providers like Microsoft Teams have made it clear that the responsibility for the end-user experience remains with the enterprise, including the networks and endpoints. In this webinar, Nectar will address:

    - The Evolving Microsoft Teams Landscape
    - Microsoft Teams PSTN Options and Impact to Visibility
    - Microsoft Direct Routing Diagnostics Options and Capabilities
    - Cloud-based CX Services to Test and Monitor Teams Calling Plan Scenarios
    - Testing & Monitoring Microsoft’s Cloud Auto Attendant and Call Queue Features
    - Analytics and Reporting Options Available Today

    While Microsoft Teams has proven a valuable tool to enterprise end-users, the transition to the cloud has left IT Operations and Support teams with a lack of visibility into the user experience. Microsoft’s basic dashboards and reporting provide some high-level insights but troubleshooting and user-level diagnostics remain challenging tasks for many enterprises. Complicating the situation, most enterprises are also deploying Microsoft Teams leveraging Direct Routing which connects on-premise carrier telephony to Microsoft’s cloud. This Direct Routing traffic represents all inbound and outbound PSTN calls, often the most important calls for most businesses.

    In this webinar we’ll address:

    -Advanced PSTN Call Troubleshooting capabilities
    -Monitoring SBC health and availability for Teams Direct Routing
    -Powerful media and signaling analysis for PSTN calls to and from Microsoft’s cloud

    Nectar has been monitoring remote workers for over ten years, as well as Microsoft UC platforms since their inception.
