Live Event Time: Friday, April 24, 2015 - 9:30 AM PST


Interop_170x200If Interop is for the geeks, then InteropNet is for the uber-geeks.

In the past, here at LoveMyTool, we have talked a great deal about InteropNet, the mission critical network that runs the show floor as well as supporting all the peripheral functions including classes and live demos.

Tim-outside-officesThis Friday we will interview Tim Titus, CTO and co-founder of PathSolutions, an InteropNet partner.

Tim will come to us live from inside the NOC which hopefully will be fully operational by then (three days before showtime). Tim will be sharing with us his experiences at Hot Stage and the network troubleshooting he did, and the technical challenges he and his fellow team members will be confronted before, during and after Interop.

Don't miss this live event.

Live Demo @ LMTV | Visual TruView from Fluke Networks (by Zack Belcher)




Flluke170x200Assessing and managing the VoIP network presents an entirely unique challenge from monitoring traditional data applications. As an example, there is a significant difference between an email taking 15 seconds to be sent and a garbled VoIP phone conversation.

Common challenges include:

  • Managing an infrastructure where VoIP can live with other applications harmoniously, is challenging at best without full visibility into the performance of both with the goal of optimizing the end-user experience.
  • Identifying not just when, but where, VoIP degradations are occurring.
  • Traditional VoIP monitoring tools rely on endpoints to report call quality—limiting troubleshooting effectiveness right from the start.
In this week's episode of LMTV, +Zack Belcher of +Fluke Networks and the other editors of LoveMyTool discussed these challenges and methods to overcome them, including a demonstration of Fluke Networks’ Visual TruView, the easiest to use VoIP quality of experience monitoring in the industry.


ZackZack Belcher is a product manager with Fluke Networks and has worked in network and application performance monitoring for over 8 years, across multiple vendors in the industry. He holds bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering from Schaefer School of Engineering and Science at Stevens Institute of Technology. Zack resides in Austin, Texas.
