Contact Center Network Traffic Analytics at the Edge

Ec2Traffic compiles SIP-Trunk analytics at the network edge of Contact Center. It provides network clarity for CC to match business resources to real traffic trends and mitigate traffic anomalies quickly, thus elevating operation agility to new high.

Ec2Traffic Implementation

Based on real-time IP packet analysis at the network edge of Contact Center, Ec2Traffic provides network traffic analytics that are hidden away from the bubble of internal analytics:

Ec2Traffic Call Routing Call Routing – Keeping track the traffic of 128 call routes or groups that are definable by phone numbers. Traffic analytics include call volume, call blockage with response codes and peak voice channels in 15-minute granularity, 24 x 7 x 365. Also, Ec2Traffic can trigger email alerts when traffic is above the threshold set by business needs.
Ec2Traffic Voice Quality Voice Quality – Call Detail Record (CDR) includes additional voice quality parameters such as RTP packet lost, jitter and SIP signalling response time. Parameters, measured separately for the incoming and outgoing directions at the edge, can quickly determine whether CC or network side is the root cause of quality issues experienced by customers.
Ec2Traffic R-Report R-report – Ec2Traffic provides daily reports written in R language. Reports summarize voice applications and network performances together throughout the day, making it easy for CC to allocate business resources matching to real traffic trends. Ec2Traffic is a building block for network intelligence, analytics are available for CSV- file upload to business management platform and wallboard.
Deep Packet Inspection Troubleshooting DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) – For ultimate troubleshooting experiences, users can capture SIP and RTP packets, filtered by phone numbers, from the edge to Wireshark and other diagnostic tools. Since Ec2Traffic is not using CC cpu and memory resources, users can troubleshoot voice applications even during peak traffic in a production environment, without compromising CC performances.
t-QuickSight SIP Traffic Overview t-QuickSight – Customer journey starts from the digital transformation to network traffic. t-Quicksight is an online dashboard comparing this traffic between last 24-hr and 14-day windows, differentiating anomalies from trends. It provides traffic clarity online. CC can keep everyone in sync with customer journeys and collaborate with vendors to mitigate problems quickly.

Ec2Traffic is carrier and CC platform agnostic. Therefore, it is simple to setup in the Cloud, Data Center and On-premises. Please see implementation diagram for details.

Use Cases

Regulatory Compliance Proof of Call Routing Contact Center Health Check
Agencies providing Contact Center as a service are often mandated to report QoS. Ec2Traffic provides traffic clarity at the edge. It simplifies the art of provisioning just enough SIP-trunk capacity that letting all calls passing through and accounting for every blocked call.

Business Benefits:
Convincing reporting at low cost.
Companies providing coast to coast logistics are facing the challenges of time zone differences and low tolerance to the delays of material handling. Their contact centers require dynamic call routing keeping all agents, customers and business partners constantly in touch around the clock. Capable of tracking 128 call routes and triggering alerts, Ec2Traffic is used as a safety-check to ensure routing instructions are executed exactly as planned.

Business Benefits:
Minimize business risk.
Customer journey starts from the digital transformation into network traffic. Therefore, detecting traffic anomalies is an effective method for Contact Center health check. Ec2Traffic provides network traffic clarity so that CC can identify root cause and mitigate problems quickly. When irregularities defy common sense, Ec2Traffic provides DPI feature for gathering real-live evidence from the edge, preempting unnecessary meeting and finger pointing.

Business Benefits:
Business continuity.
