Apparent Networks launches AppView

Updated: January 07, 2011

Apparent Networks, a provider of network monitoring services delivered via the cloud, has just publicly lanuched a new service to make VoIP testing services much easier. The software, named AppView, uses of a Linux-based appliance to determine if a network is strong enough to deliver VoIP services.

Apparent Networks' CEO Jim Melvin states that AppView is a piece of software that runs on a “micro appliance” about the size of a smartphone that plugs into a customer’s network. That appliance measures the amount of loss, latency and movement on the network in order to determine its suitability for running VoIP applications.

As Melvin said, AppView basically eliminates the need to send a professional technician to the customer site. The appliance is programed to send all the VoIP-related information concerning the network back to the Apparent Network monitoring service in the cloud. AppView will cost $50 per month.
