Altura Communication Solutions

Network Operation Center


Thousands of enterprise customers across the United States depend on Altura for 24/7 peace of mind that Managed Services provide.

Altura’s SENTINEL SHIELD simplifies the process of monitoring and maintaining communications networks and applications. From our Network Operations Center in Fullerton, CA, and Disaster Recovery Center in Phoenix, AZ, Altura holistically monitors the performance of your communications infrastructure and system alarms to quickly identify any issue throughout the network and proactively addressed it to prevent an incident or system outage before it occurs. We monitor the Voice Software and Hardware as well as the IP Data Network when requested by the customer. This means peace-of-mind service for the entire IP Telephony infrastructure.

In the event of any incident, the monitoring system automatically notified our NOC technical engineers to log and track the event. If the event is not resolved immediately, our NOC will dispatch to one of our nationwide 26 service locations, for an on-site response. Altura’s Technical Assistance Group and Convergence Solutions Group are located throughout the United States to provide an umbrella coverage to assist both the NOC and Altura service branch in providing a quick response to a technical issue. This is another example of why Altura has been rated the top service provider in our industry. We go beyond what is required by our customers and provide the best customer experience.

    Network Monitoring and Management

    In today’s convergence environment, the data network is the backbone for a communications infrastructure. If the data network is not running in optimal condition, it can directly affect the voice QoS and applications riding on the network. In particular, without monitoring the network, it is difficult to determine the bottlenecks/faults when applications are not performing to optimum levels. With Altura’s SENTINEL SHIELD network assessment, monitoring and management service, we can accurately monitor virtually all network elements and identify bottlenecks/faults before they become a problem.

    Altura’s network monitoring and management specialists provide your network with optimization analysis and recommendations for improvement in traffic flow and strategies to mitigate downstream network risks. Our comprehensive SENTINEL SHIELD services include:
