  • Managing SIP Trunking Environments Efficiently and Effectively in 2017 Jan 31 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Ray Krug - Solutions Engineer
    42% of large organisations now use SIP trunking* with a further 16% planning to reduce costs, increase agility and boost business productivity deploying SIP.

    Issues with UC can quickly erode the promised cost and feature benefits of SIP Trunking, so IT managers need to be armed to quickly triage the source of the problems across a complex landscape of mixed endpoints, third party providers of SIP Trunks, session boarder controllers, UC servers, gateways, and networks.

    This 30 mins webinar explores how to get the most from SIP and SIP Trunking to make sure that UC operates at its best, including:

    • The importance of a holistic mulit-vendor management architecture to manage SIP Trunking alongside other UC and data services
    • How to rapidly triage of complex SIP Trunking Issues and problems
    • The need for critical evidence and insight to external PSTN / SIP Trunk service providers to accelerate problem resolution
    • Identification of Network and WAN capacity management issues to help identify bottlenecks

  • Improve Network Security Using a Wired and Wireless Portable Tool Recorded: Oct 27 2016 57 mins
    Mike Pennacchi – Owner, Network Protocol Specialists, LLC.
    Network security is on the top of every network administrator’s mind. While firewalls and intrusion detection devices do a good job of blocking threats from the outside, it is necessary to have a tool that can easily be moved around the network. Such a tool can be used to monitor the conversations to and from a device, as well as monitoring the wireless network.

    That is where the OptiView XG comes in. Join us for this webinar introducing this single, self-contained tablet, that provides the ability to monitor both wired and wireless networks, analyze the traffic, and provide visibility into potential threats. The OptiView XG has integrated tools and runs the Windows operating system, allowing additional security tools to be loaded.

    In this webinar, we will explore how you can use OptiView XG to:

    - Get in-line, monitor conversations to/from devices
    - Capture wired packets at full line rate
    - Export discovered device information to importable files
    - Monitor the 2.4 and 5 GHz wireless frequencies, identifying devices such as wireless cameras
    - Perform site surveys, which may be used to identify rogue networks and access points
    - Compare actual wireless network with a predefined policy
    - Create reports, detailing the policy violations

    About the presenter:

    Mike Pennacchi is the founder and owner of Network Protocol Specialists, LLC. For the last 20 years, Mike has been traveling the world teaching classes on network troubleshooting and analysis. When he is not teaching classes on network troubleshooting, Mike is using the OptiView XG to troubleshooting critical network problems for his clients. The methods and procedures used to troubleshoot these problems is then brought back into the classroom, to ensure the students are getting timely and accurate information.

  • Managing Your RF Spectrum... something nobody ever does, and absolutely should d Recorded: Oct 25 2016 42 mins
    Bai Qing, Technical Director, SystemEngineer360 Pte Ltd
    Many administrators will admit that they reactively manage their RF spectrum, waiting until client devices experience connectivity or performance problems before troubleshooting. Some administrators may incorrectly suppose that relying on Radio Resource Management (RRM) will solve their spectrum problems, but RRM algorithms simply react to RF interference sources. How then should we proactively manage our RF spectrum in order to lower OPEX, increase performance, and to get the expected ROI from our Wi-Fi systems? Join Wi-Fi expert Bai Qing as he teaches industry best practices for protecting and managing your most precious resource: airtime.
