If you run out of media resources, symptomatically, some strange things happen:

  • Calls remain queued, even though there are available agents
  • VDN of Origin announcements don’t play for agents
  • Calls go directly to voice mail without the station ringing
  • Call recordings aren’t made
  • Conferences fail when attempting to add new members

When users report these types of things, its enormously hard to pinpoint why. Even worse, you may not even know it’s happening. So, it makes sense that this crucial resource is given visibility and is managed correctly.

What are these reports for?

  • Measure actual media resource peak consumption
  • Identify which sites have sufficient resource and those that don’t
  • Redistribute resources without having to simply purchase more
  • Trend consumption over time for accurate forecasting
  • Control costs and improve customer experience

Where do I find them?
