Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) and Network Physics announced they have partnered to deliver optimized end-user experiences for VoIP and IPTV services.

Designed around TI's PIQUA quality management system, the partnership will further help service providers and enterprise IT managers deliver important real-time visibility into performance related problems and provide automated corrective actions that can be deployed to mitigate some of the challenges with delivering IP-based services.

"Working with Network Physics, our PIQUA system automates the process of gathering IP endpoint performance metrics and converts this data into real-time actionable information, improving the delivery of IP services," said Debbie Greenstreet, director of service provider strategic marketing, TI. "The results of our alliance will include improved user experience and a reduction in overall network operating costs."

Based on TI's DSP technology and embedded software solutions, TI's PIQUA system utilizes, real-time calculations to instantly assess quality parameters related to the user's experience, allowing both equipment manufacturers and service providers to automatically and dynamically adapt to changing conditions and make adjustments.

The integration of PIQUA software with the NetSensory Solution Insight for VoIP 2.0 from Network Physics is done via standard protocols such as RTCP-XR by communicating call quality metrics, including TI RTCP-XR extensions for reporting echo quality metrics. The NetSensory tool combines valuable endpoint information and correlates it with other network data to provide network operators and enterprise IT managers with an outstanding set of metrics for actionable and rapid resolution, ensuring high quality services.

The NetSensory Solution Insight for VoIP overcomes problems associated with typical voice monitoring solutions by integrating standard voice quality metrics with more than 60 performance and utilization metrics. The Solution Insight for VoIP delivers real-time, integrated management of both voice and data applications from an easily-installed appliance, without the need for agents, probes, or synthetic handsets.

"The whole point of deploying VoIP is to run voice across the network just like any other application, but voice and network management tools aren't always up to the task," said Kenny Frerichs, president and CEO at Network Physics. "The marrying of TI's PIQUA technology and the NetSensory Solution Insight for VoIP seizes the full advantage of the PIQUA system by creating a solution that optimizes services based on true end-user experiences and provides exceptional insight into application performance."
