Integrated Research helping Alphawest make VoIP more manageable

  • 14 February, 2005 14:59

<p>Sydney 14 February 2005 - Integrated Research (IR) is pleased to announce it has signed a three-year deal with Alphawest, an Australian leader in IP Telephony solutions, to provide their PROGNOSIS IP Telephony Assessor and PROGNOSIS IP Telephony Manager software.</p>
<p>“The PROGNOSIS suite of IP Telephony products has been developed over the past four years, and we have over 90 major global organisations currently using it to manage their Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) systems,” said Kailem Anderson, Product Manager, Integrated Research.
“I believe our already mature, tried and tested IP Telephony products, built on PROGNOSIS’ seventeen year heritage in business critical application management, provided the best fit for Alphawest’s requirements”.</p>
<p>John Sanger, National General Manager - Operations, Alphawest agrees, “Alphawest sought a scaleable solution to manage multiple customer IP Telephony environments and provide a unified view of IP Telephony health across all customers.</p>
<p>“IR's PROGNOSIS product was chosen for its ability to provide clients with deep measurement and flexible views across their IP Telephony environment,” he added.</p>
<p>“There are tremendous benefits for organisations deploying IP Telephony, but managing a converged network introduces new challenges for some organisations,” Sanger said.</p>
<p>“As a specialist IT services provider, Alphawest can help mitigate the risk of deploying a new IP Telephony solution by offering a support, maintenance and managed support model which delivers cost efficiencies and reduces the complexities often associated with integrating a new technology," he added.</p>
<p>Kailem Anderson said, “The scale and rapid rate of adoption of IP Telephony is due to the benefits VoIP has over traditional carrier phone systems; namely reduced costs and greater efficiency. And, as we’re seeing with our customers across the US, the greater benefit of IP Telephony is being driven by advances in plug-in applications such as video over IP.”</p>
<p>“We’re pleased to be part of Alphawest’s plans for making VoIP more accessible,” he added. “It’s a Win Win Win situation for IR, Alphawest, and those businesses who now see that a managed IP Telephony solution is attainable.”</p>
