Collaboration and IT professionals, come join us on October 27-29, 2020 for the twelfth annual CollabSphere conference. This three-day conference focuses on HCL B2B application and HCL Digital Solutions technology and this year will be an online conference. Learn from your fellow IT and business professionals and share your experiences and best practices.

The global pandemic affected everyone throughout the world. Rather than an in-person conference, CollabSphere's team have decided to host an online event for 2020. As with the 2020 theme "On the Rise Together," the conference is bringing everyone together to learn and network. We look forward to being a part of the continued growth of the community by sharing knowledge and expanding awareness in collaboration technology.

Webinar: Monitoring User End-Point Performance for Call Quality Analytics and Troubleshooting

13:00 - 13:30 (EDT) | online

29 October
13:00 - 13:30

Bad call quality during Microsoft Teams meetings usually results in employee escalations to the IT group for investigation. Without the detailed data to perform forensic analysis on the issue, the investigation usually goes nowhere. As enterprise organizations steadily adopt Teams as their main solution hub for conference calls and meetings, they will need access to more in-depth metrics to identify and troubleshoot video and voice call quality issues.

New capabilities inside OfficeExpert gather end-point performance data from each user computer. This information helps IT groups view call quality metrics to identify problems and gain insights to help prioritize troubleshooting and investigate system anomalies. The metrics help spotlight issues including old headsets, network infrastructure bottlenecks, and slow Internet Service Providers (ISP’s); all of which cause user experience nightmares.

In this webinar, you will receive an introduction to Teams call quality analytics leveraging accurate end-point performance data. If you want to know the truth about your Teams call quality experience, then please join us to see how proactive troubleshooting can work to remediate issues before they become nightmares.

During the webinar demonstration you will explore topics that include:
  • Tracking end-point call quality performance by device (BlueTooth Headset, PC Audio, Surface Hub, Mobile Device, etc.)
  • Detailed analytics for end-point locations (Home Users, Office Users, Mobile Phones, etc.)
  • Real-world troubleshooting for call quality issue resolutions
  • And more…
Don’t miss the opportunity to take advantage of this timely information.
