Hilversum (NL), Dallas (USA), Lod (Israel) - November 4, 2019 - NEC,
global leader in Enterprise Communications & IT solutions, and AudioCodes, a leading vendor of advanced voice networking and media
processing solutions for the digital workplace, today announced that they are collaborating in providing a comprehensive voice and data
layer network monitoring and analytics solution.
The joint solution is facilitated through integration of the AudioCodes One Voice Operations Center (OVOC) and NEC's MasterScope and is
designed to help enterprises, contact centers and service providers simplify voice network operations, improve user experiences and reduce
downtime. Both companies will sell the joint solution to their customers around the world.
OVOC and MasterScope combined
The combination of OVOC and MasterScope enables customers to monitor and analyze voice and data layers via a single view. Customers can
corroborate statistics from different network layers to ensure accurate troubleshooting and root cause analysis. Current and historical
call data can be viewed along with the underlying data layer information with just a few clicks, offering intelligent insights into
network trends and performance that can assist in network planning and design.
MasterScope is NEC's integrated operations management software brand that leverages the expertise and advanced technologies developed by
NEC over many years. NEC delivers more than 3,000 MasterScope systems to customers annually. MasterScope provides end-to-end support for
systems encompassing ICT infrastructure to applications, and meets our customers' needs for easy-to-operate products. This SNMP-based
network management system improves the efficiency of multi-vendor networks and reduces management costs, including Configuration
Management, Fault Management, Performance Management and Advanced Functions.
AudioCodes One Voice Operations Center (OVOC) is a holistic life-cycle FCAPS (fault, configuration, accounting, performance and security)
management and voice network design solution that combines management of voice network devices and quality of experience monitoring into a
single, intuitive web-based application. OVOC enables administrators to adopt a holistic approach to network lifecycle management by
simplifying everyday tasks and assisting in the troubleshooting process from detection to correction. Through the collaboration with
NEC, OVOC is now able to monitor a variety of NEC network devices.
Comprehensive voice network monitoring
"Integration of AudioCodes One Voice Operation Center with our MasterScope network analytics solution is an important development for
voice network managers," said Ram Menghani, Senior Vice President, NEC Enterprise Communications Technologies, Inc. "We are confident that
the combination of our two companies’ market-leading technologies and decades of field expertise will help organizations improve the
