About NetIQ Chariot VoIP Assessor

Based on the proven network testing technology of NetIQ's Chariot software, VoIP Assessor allows systems integrators and network managers to determine a network's readiness for VoIP prior to the purchase and deployment of any VoIP equipment. Users are accustomed to the extremely high reliability of the PSTN and call quality drops off quickly if packet loss, delay or jitter occurs. VoIP Assessor can emulate more than 2,500 simultaneous VoIP calls across a network, collecting key voice and network metrics and analyzing the results - allowing administrators to make informed decisions on how to proceed with deployment.
