Net2Phone's ADIR Technologies Launches Voxis VoIP Management
Suite of Products
First Real-Time VoIP Performance - Management Software
Solution for Large Service Providers
NEWARK, N.J. --Oct. 17, 2001-Net2Phone, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTOP)
today announced that its majority-owned subsidiary Adir Technologies,
Inc., a leading supplier of software for Voice over IP (VoIP)
networks, launched the Voxis VoIP Management Suite of products.
Voxis is a comprehensive, easy to use performance management
solution for large VoIP service providers worldwide.
Voxis is the first VoIP performance and fault-management
software solution that offers service providers the highest
degree of visibility and control at the call level, in real-time.
In contrast to IP network products that focus on data packets,
Voxis is designed to address the specific needs of service
providers who operate VoIP telecommunications networks. In
addition, the Voxis Suite is compatible with Cisco 2600, 3600,
5300 and 5400 voice-enabled hardware platforms.
The Voxis VoIP Management Suite was originally developed
to support the worldwide operations of VoIP market leader
Net2Phone. It is thus already proven in a production environment,
capable of handling tens of thousands of simultaneous calls
across thousands of gateways. The Suite uses a distributed
architecture that makes it easy to scale up to the requirements
of the largest VoIP networks, yet requires very low bandwidth
to capture large amounts of real-time data.
"This is a significant milestone for both Net2Phone
and Adir Technologies as we begin to see incremental financial
return on the six years of research and development Net2Phone
has dedicated to the management platform," said Howie
Balter, CEO of Net2Phone. "By leveraging Adir's strong
strategic relationships and technological expertise, we can
extend the Net2Phone standard worldwide, as well as interconnect
with countless Cisco-powered networks."
Voxis provides an end-to-end, call-level view of VoIP network
performance, instantly, so service providers can proactively
identify the root cause of problems. This enables them to
provide excellent voice quality, minimize service outages,
grow subscribers and revenue per minute, and minimize investment
in infrastructure and staff.
"The leading world providers in VoIP tell us that
our products have contributed significantly to their success.
The Voxis VoIP Management Suite is a must have for any service
provider looking to offer exceptional QoS to their customers,"
said David Greenblatt, Chief Executive Officer of Adir. "The
goal is to troubleshoot any problems before the customer realizes
that something is wrong. Voxis, with its PSTN and IP testing
and complete call-level view of network activity, is unparalleled
in the current marketplace."
The Voxis Suite includes:
- Voxis Dashboard: True real-time call-level "console"
that displays gateway, span, and call detail information,
enabling service providers to quickly identify and resolve
- Voxis Miner: Intelligent data reduction, analysis, alarming,
and reporting that support SLA management, network troubleshooting,
and fraud detection.
- Voxis Dialer: End-to-end PSTN testing and analysis that
measures and reports on call completion, access, and voice
- Voxis Streamer: IP "mesh testing" systematically
measuring packet loss, jitter, delay, and other metrics
regardless of how large and intricate the network grows.
Taken together, these components provide a comprehensive,
end-to-end picture of network performance. With this information
in hand, service providers can limit incremental hires of
operations and customer support personnel as network complexity
increases, as well as limit unnecessary expenditures on incremental
hardware. They can also roll out new revenue generating enhanced
services with confidence. More technical information about
the Voxis Suite can be found by emailing Adir at sales@Adirtech.com.
