SolarWinds IP SLA Manager uses the SNMP and ICMP monitoring technology at the core of SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM) to interact with call managers and to track call manager performance persistently. With the addition of SolarWinds IP SLA Manager, you immediately know the status of your VoIP network and all of its components at any time.
SolarWinds IP SLA Manager can monitor any node that is relevant to your VoIP network, provided you have first added the node to SolarWinds NPM.

SolarWinds IP SLA Manager provides a number of default alerts, reports, and resources that allow you to monitor all of your VoIP devices constantly.
