AirMagnet Upgrades Voice-Over-Wireless LAN Monitoring Tool

VoFi Analyzer 3.0 understands voice traffic as it passes through a wireless network and collects connection, device, and server data for better insight into company voice deployments.

AirMagnet, a provider of wireless network analysis, on Monday launched a new version of a tool for monitoring and troubleshooting voice that's deployed over wireless local area networks.

VoFi Analyzer 3.0 understands voice traffic as it passes through a wireless network. It then collects and combines connection, device, and server data to give IT managers better insight into their company's voice deployments, said AirMagnet. In other words, the data is collected from three different sources: the phone, the WLAN, and the wired side, such as a server.

The new version allows IT managers to pinpoint call problems and generate mean opinion scores, which measure the quality of received media after compression or transmission, even on networks that have been encrypted. Traditional packet-sniffing technologies have to decode the traffic first to determine call quality scores, AirMagnet said.

"With more and more companies looking to run voice applications over wireless networks, it's critical for an IT manager to be able to quickly troubleshoot VoWLAN deployments without endangering the security of their networks," said Dean Au, president and CEO of AirMagnet.

VoFi Analyzer integrates with popular networking products like Cisco's Call Manager and Vocera's servers to provide analysis of a network's end-points and the traffic in between. This is especially important when it comes to correcting connection issues. It also supports SpectraLink's IP phones.

The new version comes in two editions. VoFi Analyzer Standard costs $10,000; VoFi Analyzer Pro costs $12,000 and includes all the features of the Standard edition, plus support for Cisco, SpectraLink, and Vocera.
