What is VoIP Codec?

Posted by 15 October, 2019 Comments Off on What is VoIP Codec?

A codec refers to an algorithm that is used to decode and encode voice conversation in VOIP. The sound and voice that human beings hear is in analogue form and has to be converted to digital to make it possible to transmit it over the internet. The sound or voice has to be converted back to analogue once it reaches the receiving end so that it can be heard.

VoIP Codec

There are various ways that the decoding and encoding can be done but the majority of them use compression. This method ensures that the bandwidths are reduced. If the compression is heavy, there is usually a delay in the conversation because it takes time. It is possible to find a VoIP codec that will take a minimum amount of time.

Subnet Mask

Posted by 14 October, 2019 Comments Off on Subnet Mask

A subnet mask is used to detect the IP address that is reserved for your network and the one available for use by the host. The subnet mask offers you all the information that you need to calculate the network and host portions of the address with great ease. With the subnet mask you can calculate whether the IP addresses are in a similar subnet.

The subnets are necessary for the IP network communications to carry on. The network devices use the IP addresses and a defined subnet mask to determine if the host is on a remote subnet or local subnet.

SolarWinds Orion Network Performance Monitor Review

Posted by 20 May, 2012 Comments Off on SolarWinds Orion Network Performance Monitor Review

SolarWinds Orion Network Performance Monitor (NPM) is a powerful yet easy-to-use tool for detecting, diagnosing,and resolving network performance issues. The next time a user complains that “the network is slow”, you can have the tools to turn that uselessly vague complaint into actionable data.

NPM automatically discovers your network, creates network topology maps, and then provides you with real-time views into network performance.

NPM provides a centralized console to monitor performance statistics from network devices such as routers, switches, wireless access points, and servers.

In addition to the up/down status provided by ICMP pinging, SolarWinds NPM uses the industry-standard SNMP protocol to retrieve detailed network performance statistics from SNMP-enabled devices.

NPM doesn’t just wait for you to watch the screen either, it’s network alerting feature monitors the network 24 hours a day and alerts you when an issue needs your attention. It can even correlate multiple events to provide you with sophisticated root cause analysis. For example, if fifteen servers behind a switch suddenly disappear, NPM is smart enough to notify you not that 15 servers disappeared from the network — but that the switch in front of those servers failed.

To help with one of the most hated chores in IT, Network Performance Monitor even creates customizable reports for you to share with your boss. The next time a user complains about network speed, you can respond with a detailed PDF report confirming or denying their suspicion.

NPM took me less than an hour to setup. SolarWinds even offers a 30-day free trial to try NPM before you buy it.

You can find more tools like NPM at this excellent web site.
