The audit "was shocking proof of how much we needed to get a better understanding of our network prior to going large-scale with VOIP," Haltom says. For example, networking gear that could handle data traffic with only minor delays would not be capable of handling the stress of voice data, he adds. "We had duplex mismatches, NIC cards chattering in several locations — all of which have some minor effects on data-based traffic," but with voice they would be a menace.
