AVI-SPL Expands Managed Services With Remote Management of AV Devices

Earlier today, AVI-SPL announced it has expanded its video managed services to consolidate support of all meeting room devices.  From our dedicated VNOCs, AVI-SPL  monitors every network-connected device for your meeting experience  in order minimize downtime and correct problems before they affect your operations.

Why do businesses need AV monitoring?

For a successful meeting room experience, AV equipment must be operational and work together. By capturing information about the AV devices throughout your network, we can ensure they are ready when you need them to be.

For those who rely on video conferencing and AV equipment, the benefits include:

  • Actively monitored meeting rooms and asset management
  • Immediate problem diagnosis and resolution
  • Minimized meeting disruptions due to faulty equipment
  • Advanced customer notification – users aren’t surprised by inoperable devices
  • Resolution of issues before they affect your meetings

What kinds of devices can AVI-SPL monitor?

The VNOC Symphony® Platform remotely monitors the AV devices in your meeting environment, including:

  • Projectors and displays
  • Control systems
  • Audio digital signal processors
  • Interactive whiteboards
  • Media servers
  • Video conferencing endpoints

How does VNOC Symphony AV Monitoring work?

A core management tool at the client site notifies the AVI-SPL VNOC® of any equipment issues. From the VNOC Symphony dashboard, dedicated help desk staff can view alarms and device status information. Symphony gathers information from SNMP-compliant devices and vendor monitoring systems, and will automatically open trouble tickets. By eliminating the need for onsite field technicians to detect and diagnose a problem, we expedite the resolution of any device issue.

We’ve also recently improved our ability to manage a client’s devices. AVI-SPL’s Communicator Proxy provides standards-based polling of all devices within the customer’s network and reports the information back to VNOC Symphony in real-time. Instead of hundreds of devices trying to talk to the cloud through the enterprise firewall, all communication is consolidated through the proxy, which provides the information to the VNOC. It also allows commands from the VNOC to be sent securely to the client devices for call launches and device control. For more information, please read our press release on Communicator Proxy.

AVI-SPL Symphony AV Monitoring is the next step in our quest to make your meetings and operations more efficient and productive.  Stop by booth #2381 at infoComm 2013 in Orlando this June 12-14 to see a live demonstration of AVI-SPL’s AV monitoring. Learn more about how AVI-SPL can protect your video conferences and provide low-cost, high-quality and easily scaled virtual meeting rooms.

AVI-SPL Improves Remote Managed Services With Communicator Proxy

As InfoComm 2013 gets underway, AVI-SPL has just announced a new offering that expands our ability to monitor a customer’s AV equipment and video conferencing endpoints behind its firewall.

AVI-SPL’s Communicator Proxy provides standards-based polling of all IP-reachable devices within the customer’s network and reports the information back to our cloud-based VNOC Symphony® managed services platform in real-time. Instead of hundreds of devices trying to talk to the cloud through the enterprise firewall, all communication is consolidated through the proxy, which provides the information to the VNOC. It also allows commands from the VNOC to be sent securely to the client devices for call launches and device control. For more information, please read our press release on Communicator Proxy.

We’ve developed Communicator Proxy to help IT organizations limit the number of external connections to their corporate network. AVI-SPL is the only video managed service provider with this capability. Until now, all video managed service providers required a dedicated connection to customer networks in order to monitor meeting room equipment and launch video calls. AVI-SPL’s Communicator Proxy puts key modules of our VNOC Symphony® managed services platform behind the customer’s firewall and uses their standard ports in the firewall to communicate with Symphony.

Benefits of AVI-SPL’s Communicator Proxy

  • Monitoring: Standards-based polling of all devices within the customer’s network. Reports the information back to the VNOC Symphony cloud in real-time.
  • Management: A secure link from the Symphony cloud to the Communicator Proxy sends call launching and device control information to the hundreds of devices located on the secure network.
  • Secure Access: A secure, single egress point for VNOC personnel to access devices via their integrated remote management capabilities.
