GL Announces Comprehensive IP Analysis and Simulation Tools
Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA – GL Communications Inc., announced today its industry leading IP Analysis & Simulation tools.
Speaking to the press, Mr. Vijay Kulkarni, the CEO of the company said, “IP and Voice over IP (VoIP) technology has revolutionized the IT and Telecom industries offering significant benefits to both, to name just a few: convergence of voice, video, and data networks, cost advantages in implementation and operation, simplified network management, and opportunities for wide array of next generation network applications. Of course conventional services of voice, video, and data must retain or exceed the quality of legacy networks.”
He added, “GL Communications Inc offers IP test suite that addresses wide ranging issues to ensure the performance of IP and VoIP technology. It consists of IP, VoIP, Wireless, LAN and WAN Emulation and Analysis tools that provide comprehensive real-time scenario of IP network analysis and emulation in a lab set up.”
Mr. Kulkarni further explained, “GL’s range of IP emulation products starting with Quad Port Ethernet Tester: PacketExpert™ 1G and 10G series support various important functionalities: Wirespeed BERT, Smart Loopback, RFC 2544 Testing, ExpertSAM™, IPLinkSim™, Record and Playback, PacketBroker, and IPNetSim™.
GL’s PcketCheck™ is software based Ethernet/IP test tool and also a general purpose network performance analysis tool for 10Mbps, 100Mbps and 1Gbps LANs and WANs. Throughput up to 800 Mbps can be easily tested.
GL's MAPS™ is a protocol simulation and conformance test tool that can be applied to a variety of protocols such as SIP, MEGACO, MGCP, SS7, SIGTRAN, ISDN, GSM, UMTS,LTE, IMS and others. It also supports simulation of FAX over IP (FoIP) - both RTP G.711 Pass Through Fax Simulation and T.38 Fax Simulation over UDPTL. It is also an ideal tool to evaluate Gateway / ATA with TDM and VoIP Interfaces. The tester supports T1 E1 PRI ISDN, Megaco, and SIP interfaces.
GL also provides a PC-based real-time VoIP bulk call generator referred to as PacketeGen™ that can be used for stress testing and precise analysis of the VoIP network equipment.
GL also provides testing and simulation tool that is designed not only to monitor RTP and RTCP packets, but also to allow users to manually create and terminate RTP sessions, independent of call-signaling protocols such as SIP, H323, MEGACO, or MGCP. GL’s RTP Core allows creating, managing and deleting RTP sessions. RTP Core is a standalone application that acts as an interface between RTP dll and the application.
GTP Traffic Simulation modules within MAPS™ support user-plane traffic simulation in LTE, UMTS, and GPRS networks. GL also has products that address testing ATAs and Gateways, Echo Canceller Compliance Testing, and IP Softphone Testing and more.”
Mr. Kulkarni further added, “On IP Analysis side, GL provides a host of products and leading the pack is All-IP Network Monitoring software referred to as PacketScan™ and it offers powerful features to capture and monitor live signaling and traffic over IP (version 4 and 6).
PacketScan™- All IP Protocol Analyzer supports monitoring all 2G, 3G and 4G protocols such as GSM, GPRS, UMTS, SIGTRAN, LTE, and Diameter, in addition to IP protocols such as SIP, MGCP, MEGACO, Skinny, and H.323. GL’s NetSurveyorWeb™ tool remotely works with PacketScan™, a central web server and database to facilitate result display using web based clients.
GL’s Packet Data Analyzer tool helps in live monitoring of signaling and traffic over IP. GL also provides handheld hardware tool referred to as PackettShark™ that can tap packet networks, capture Ethernet packets at wire speed.
GL also has tools for monitoring voice band network traffic, Fax over IP analysis that provides analyzes pre-recorded IP fax calls. GL also provides VoIP Voice Quality Testing Solutions that has the capability of connecting to and between any network, any service, and any interface for testing voice and data quality.”
He added, “GL’s WAN Emulators help user to test the performance of such WAN network-dependent applications by emulating the WAN conditions in a local setup easily and cost effectively.”
