Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA – September 23, 2008 – GL Communications Inc. announced today the release of enhanced T1 E1 Analyzer Hardware and Software - Version 5.13. Addressing a press conference, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia, Senior Manager of Product Development, said, “The T1/E1 Analysis Suite of products provides comprehensive analysis and emulation capabilities for voiceband and signaling protocol emulation and analysis. The additions to the T1 E1 Analyzer product suite now include: New hardware called Universal T1 E1 Analyzer cards, software for WCS ISDN Emulation, and other enhancements to protocol emulators and analyzers”. He added, “The Universal T1 E1 Analyzer cards easily plug into PCI 2.1 Compliant slots of any PC. The advantage they offer over prior version of cards is integrated hardware support for both T1 as well as E1, thus allowing easy switching between T1 and E1 interface testing”.

Mr. Vadalia further added, “New software for ISDN Emulation in Client-Server mode allows easy automation and remoting for ISDN PRI applications. Another application is “Pulse Mask”, used for detection, monitoring, and plotting of received pulses. It includes Monitor Pulse Mask and Pulse Mask Display modules that can be remotely controlled using simple commands by client applications. Significant enhancements are also introduced to a range of protocol products that include: ATM, MC ML-PPP, and UMTS protocols.” He added, “With the introduction of the new applications and enhancements, the T1 E1 Analyzer Product suite adds significant value to T1 E1 testing needs of customers”.

A brief summary of the new features in the T1E1 Analyzer - 5.13 Release are provided below:
New Hardware
•Universal T1 E1 PCI Cards:
GL has added to its T1 E1 Analyzer hardware test suite new hardware called "Universal T1 E1 Cards". These cards easily plug into PCI 2.1 Compliant slots of any PC. The advantage it offers over the prior version of T1 E1 cards is that it includes integrated hardware support for both T1 as well as E1 lines, thus allowing easy switching between T1 and E1 interface testing.

For comprehensive information on the product, please refer to Universal T1 E1 cards website.

New Software:
•Pulse Mask:
Incoming pulses are tested for compliance against T1 or E1 standard pulse mask specified by the ITU G.703 standard and ANSI T1.102-1993. This feature is also available with the Client Server software for automation and remoting applications. It includes Monitor Pulse Mask and Pulse Mask Display modules that can be remotely controlled using simple commands by client applications.

  • WCS ISDN Emulator:

This Client-Server application is used for performing complete ISDN switch and subscriber emulation. The functions that can be performed using client-server are:
•Configuring the ISDN layer parameters, called/calling numbering plan/type, type of ISDN service
•Placing and accepting calls for each timeslot or for the whole trunk
•Loging call records for complete or incomplete calls
•Simple NFAS setup for T1

  • Client Server Pulse Mask:

This Client-Server application in Universal boards is used for detection, monitoring, and plotting of transmitted pulses. It includes Monitor Pulse Mask and Pulse Mask Display modules that can be remotely controlled using simple commands by client applications. Some of the commands supported are CheckPulseMask, validate pulse, stop pulse mask validation, and others.

Other Enhancements:

  • Protocol Analyzers:

•ATM Analyzer - Real-time Capture Filter in ATM Analyzer now supports filtering of Idle Cells along with the specified VPI, VCI, and PT values. Segmentation and Reassembly feature in ATM Analyzer now supports AAL - Layer 0
•MLPPP Analyzer is also enhanced to decode padded NCP messages
•UMTS Protocol Analyzer- The UMTS protocol analysis is now supported over IP as well as over T1 E1 and ATM. The supported standards include ATM, ATM AAL2 & AAL5, SSCOP, IP, UDP, SCTP, SSCF-UNI, SSCF-NNI, SAAL-NNI, NBAP, ALCAP, Iub-FP, Iu-UP, UMAC, RLC, MTP3B, SCCP, RANAP, M3UA, CC, MM, SMS, SM, SSSAR, and RNSAP.
