SUWANEE, Georgia – June 7, 2004 – Telchemy (R) Incorporated, the global leader in VoIP performance management technology, today announced its new SQmon (TM) family of software products for end-to-end VoIP service quality monitoring. Building on the strength of its widely deployed VQmon (R) VoIP call quality monitoring technology, SQmon represents the next step towards Telchemy’s long term goal of providing the performance management infrastructure needed to support the growing range of real-time applications and services.
SQmon is a family of modular OEM software applications that includes sophisticated probe and mediation/aggregation functions.

The product will be available as a software application for selected versions of Linux, Windows and Solaris during the fourth quarter of 2004.
SQmediator is an advanced VoIP call quality correlation and aggregation function designed for use with the SQprobe. SQmediator provides the ability to monitor service across a network, summarize call quality metrics derived from call quality records, generate real-time alerts and integrate with SNMP-based reporting applications.
