17 Copyright© 2004 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved IP Migration Considerations CDUG Bryan Jefferson Managing Consultant, CSI Western Region

18 18 Copyright© 2004 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved IP Migration Consulting Services Planning is a critical component of successful IP migrations –Voice and Data place significantly different (and potentially conflicting) demands on your data network. Avaya helps clients effectively prepare for and transition to IP. –IP Readiness Testing (ExpertNet) –Migration strategy, planning –Implementation services –Operational Readiness (“Day 2”) –Validation / Troubleshooting services Vendor neutral Supports strategic decision making (“When / why should I migrate to IP”) and implementation (ensuring smooth migration)

19 19 Copyright© 2004 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved VoIP Challenges Voice and Data have different requirements Most data networks do not deliver to the performance standards needed in a converged environment Multi-vendor network components (interoperability) Most networks have congestion –Problems hidden by applications –Or, users are tolerant (same users will NOT tolerate bad video/voice) Users have expectations for voice quality, regardless of the technology

20 20 Copyright© 2004 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved Voice vs. Data: Fundamentally Different Networks VoiceData Connection-basedConnectionless GuaranteedBest-effort Black phones, intelligent networks Smart hosts, dumb networks Stable and predictableDynamic and exponential growth

21 21 Copyright© 2004 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved Congestion is Inevitable At some point, the current network will experience congestion that will degrade voice quality Congestion Effects: - Packet loss – Buffers fill up – additional packets are dropped *Causes audible gaps in speech - Jitter Buffered packets are transmitted with varying delays *Causes distortion in the play-out of the reconstructed voice signal - Delay – Packets are buffered (queued) before being transmitted *Causes talkers to interrupt one another

22 22 Copyright© 2004 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved Avaya’s Convergence Recommendations Baseline the current network Develop a QoS strategy Make improvements before converging –Stabilize –Streamline –Optimize routing tables –Redundancy –Service Level Agreements Implement QoS end-to-end Adjust support processes Monitor performance

23 23 Copyright© 2004 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved Avaya ExpertNet - Powerful Support Tools Assists Avaya experts in assessing your network for IP readiness Enables analysts to pinpoint network issues Integrates call path with device utilization and end-to-end QoS statistics Provides live network assessments 24/7 Supports seamless integration with IP Telephony Automatically discovers all network devices Scans entire network and/or sub-networks Polls the discovered network elements Collects device and interface information Generates chosen sets of synthesized calls Provides visualization of call path and data

24 24 Copyright© 2004 Avaya Inc. All rights reserved How Call Synthesis Works Place synthetic call endpoints on IP Telephony deployment subnets Inject traffic (RTP) flows between endpoint pairs Monitor end-to-end QoS –Delay –Jitter –Loss Store data ExpertNet Server
