Location Quality


I can see the poor streams ratio for audio, video and sharing streams in a simple gauge visual format. 

Microsoft recommend 3% as a starting target for poor streams, and this will be in the green range of each gauge. 3-6% will be in amber, over 6% into red.

The lower pane shows for each AD department / city / country the total and poor streams for each media type. The last three columns for poor % are colour coded allowing easy identification of areas where performance drops below 3% poor. Using the AD / Building switch this can be changed to Building name / city / country instead.

Use the date, Active Directory and Call Type slicers at the top of the report to limit to a particular area of interest. Further advanced filtering can be done using the Filter pane on the right hand side.

This report tells me
