11/11/2003 - When Consultronics, Ltd, maker of sophisticated telecom test equipment, decided to expand its product offerings to meet the growing demand for VoIP network monitoring and test systems, it turned to NMS Communications (Nasdaq:NMSS), trusted supplier of communications products and services, for help. Consultronics needed to work with a partner who understood test equipment requirements and VoIP network environments. As a pioneer in IP communications and with a long history of supplying products and services to communications test equipment companies, NMS was the clear choice for Consultronics.
NMS supplied complete system building blocks (http://www.nmscommunications.com/solutions/PlatformProducts) ideal for Consultronics' monitoring equipment. To further reduce time-to-market, NMS provided technical assistance and on-site training for the Consultronics development team, allowing them to focus on their application, not on the hardware and software platform.
"We found NMS to be the ideal partner to help Consultronics maintain our leadership position in the telecom test equipment market," said Andre Poliszuk, Director of Marketing & Business Development, Systems, Consultronics, Ltd. "Their ability to provide a complete platform solution, with API's, codecs, H.323, as well as training in our European R&D lab, was key to getting us to market quickly and easily."
Consultronics' NMS-based VoIP network quality monitoring system examines and retrieves information from live IP and E1/T1 network traffic, helping to reduce network failures by providing early detection of network deterioration. Service Level Agreements (SLA's) are supported with permanent network assessment from the subscriber's perspective. New services can be optimized using fully automated field trials prior to and during rollout, and, because few skilled operators are required for testing, labor costs overall are minimized.
IDC projects the IP telephony equipment market to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 45% to $15.1 billion in 2007, supporting extensive VoIP network deployments, fueling the demand for VoIP network quality monitoring systems.
