In a January post, we introduced you to PathView, a new monitoring tool from Apparent Networks that we provide for our clients. PathView is an affordable hosted solution that enables close monitoring of network performance to ensure stable, high-quality network performance.
In the previous post, we shared the story of Princeton Consulting, a real EDC client that illustrates the real-world application of PathView and highlights the efficiency businesses can realize when PathView is implemented.
Here’s an excerpt detailing Princeton Consulting’s experience with PathView:
“Princeton…had been experiencing drops in service from their Internet service provider in New York. PathView allowed Princeton to verify that the disruption in service they were experiencing was coming from their service provider, not from their own equipment…Princeton also uses PathView to monitor voice quality of their existing ShoreTel VoIP system. The visualization of voice calling PathView provides allows Princeton to continually monitor problems in the system and know exactly when and where they occur.”
Princeton is an IT consulting company, but the value of PathView is not relegated to the IT industry. We are now beginning to see an interest in this service in the education industry.
Last week we published an interview with our CEO Al Harnisch that raised awareness about the efficiencies classrooms are experiencing when they implement IP telephony. In order for these schools to get the true value of these technologies, they must do their due diligence and monitor the performance to limit the occurrence of network threats.
When it comes to managing student databases, IT professionals at schools are impressed with the amount of data they are able to pull using PathView. They are able to pinpoint the entire path their data takes and if there are any problems during the delivery, PathView identifies them. They’re also impressed with the low price point and the fact that since it’s a hosted solution provided off-site by Eastern Datacomm, it doesn’t require additional staff or on-site equipment, which is good for their budget.
