As we read in Zeus Kerravala's NoJitter article, the Unified Communications environment has evolved due to the explosion of IT innovation.  With this growing centralization around media-rich network traffic like voice and video, comes the pressure for network administrators to ensure that such traffic is performing up to expectation.  LiveAction helps network administrators to identify analyze, troubleshoot and mitigate underlying performance issues for voice and video before they become major network catastrophes. Read more to learn how LiveAction helps to optimize enterprise voice and video.

To keep up with this constantly evolving era of IT, network administrators need to change the way that the manage their networks.  Relying on the command line to do QoS configurations often requires special training, is slow, and is prone to human error.  It is a stressful task, especially when you cannot see or verify changes that you are making to your network.  With this menthod, you're never really sure of how the changes you are implementing is effecting your network.  With LiveAction's rich graphical templtes, point-and-click configurations, and real-time changes, you can control application and network performance characteristics quickly and accurately.  Read on to find out more about LiveAction as a solution for QoS configuration.

In part 1 of this blog, we went over what IP SLA can do in terms of monitoring the performance of the WAN and specific application types such as voice, video, HTTP and other services.  Once you have IP SLA setup, it will provide you with information on WAN performance and degradation as it occurs.  In addition to monitoring, you can actually manage and solve performance issues by following the steps below:
