Management for VOIP and Unified Communications
Source: Nemertes Research
As enterprises introduce VOIP to their networks as the cornerstone of ensuing unified communications deployments, and as those networks must cope increasingly with mobile hosts, IT needs more specialized network management tools to match. Management tools must focus on the specific needs and characteristics of the new devices and protocols on the network. They should also provide for flexible IP address-management, which, by providing policy-driven IP address lifecycle management, can both allow IP address space to be managed as a strategic resource, and provide critical information to security and performance monitoring tools.
