GL Communications Inc conveyed today the availability of Signaling System 7 (SS7) Protocol simulation using Digital Central Office Switch Simulator (DCOSS).

DCOSS SS7 System

The Digital Central Office Switch Simulator (DCOSS) offers the capability of simulating Signaling System 7 (SS7) digital protocol.

GL Communications Inc. a leader in providing PC-based test, analysis and simulation products and consulting services to the worldwide telecommunications industry, conveyed today the availability of Signaling System 7 (SS7) Protocol simulation using Digital Central Office Switch Simulator (DCOSS).

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Robert Bichefsky Senior Manager of the company said, ”The Digital Central Office Switch Simulator (DCOSS) offers the capability of simulating Signaling System 7 (SS7) digital protocol. DCOSS SS7 utilizes a user-friendly GUI in which the complex SS7 configuration can easily be created, thus allowing DCOSS SS7 to be fully functional within a few minutes.”

He added, ”DCOSS SS7 also incorporates the flexibility to modify SS7 parameters, both at the MTP and ISUP/TUP layers as well as the ISUP/TUP message content. This flexibility ensures that the DCOSS SS7 will communicate with the system under test.”

Mr. Bichefsky further added, “Configuring DCOSS SS7 is quite simple, even for the most complex requirements. The DCOSS SS7 utilizes a GUI that provides the user with all required SS7 parameters. These parameters may be saved to the DCOSS database, after modification, for later retrieval.”

Important Features

·All SS7 networks supported
·Build your own SS7 Network with SSP, STP and SCP nodes. Complex STP non-adjacent links supported
·Supports SSP/STP combined nodes for additional flexibility
·User-Friendly GUI for Configuring the SS7 MTP Layers and ISUP/TUP Layers. This includes access to optional MTP/ISUP/TUP parameters such as timers, route masks, and priorities
·4 or 16 Configurable Signaling Links per SS7 board, up to two SS7 boards per DCOSS system.
·Supports multiple OPC configuration per SS7 board
·Dual T1 E1 User Defined Interfaces on each SS7 board supports SS7 Signaling Links
·Subsequent Address Message (SAM) configurations available
·TCAP/SCCP functionality supported. Generate a user-defined SCP database. Create a user-defined 800 number or LNP look-up table
·SSP and/or STP Emulation with the capability of Adjacent Routes as well as Non-Adjacent Routes
·Fully Supported Continuity Testing (COT) that includes both COT messages and user-defined loopback tones
·Access to all ISUP and TUP Message Parameters (IAM, ACM, REL, CPG)
·User-Friendly GUI for creating the Circuit Mapping. Define Circuit Identification Codes (CIC) and map these CICs to Timeslots/Trunks in order to enable Voice/Data traffic
·Logging of all SS7 Messages in real time. Each SS7 message displays the OPC, DPC and CIC defined within the message
·Save and Load Protocol, Trunk and Dialing Parameters as User Defined Configurations

About GL Communications Inc.,

Founded in 1986, GL Communications Inc. is a leading supplier of test, monitoring, and analysis equipment for TDM, Wireless, IP and VoIP networks. Unlike conventional test equipment, GL's test platforms provide visualization, capture, storage, and convenient features like portability, remotability, and scripting.

GL’s TDM Analysis & Emulation line of products includes T1, E1, T3, E3, OC-3, OC-12, STM-1, STM-4, analog four-wire, and analog two-wire interface cards, external portable pods, and complete system solutions. Capabilities include voiceband traffic analysis and emulation across all traffic types (voice, digits, tones, fax, modem), all protocols (ISDN, SS7, GR-303, Frame Relay, HDLC, V5.X, ATM, GSM, GPRS, LTE, etc.), and with capacities up to thousands of channels. Our newest products provide astonishing capacity and capture capability up to and including gigabit speeds.

GL’s VoIP and IP products generate / analyze thousands of calls and traffic simultaneously with traffic types such as frames, packets, voice files, digits, video, tones, noise, and fax. Almost all codecs are supported including G.711, G.729, AMR, EVRC-A,B,C, GSM, iSAC, and many more. Additional features include visual analysis, real-time listening, and recording. The product line also includes Ethernet / IP Testing capability that simulates and checks frame transport and throughput parameters of Ethernet and IP networks, including delay, errors and other impairments.

GL's Voice Quality Testing (VQT) product line complements all of GL's products. Using ITU-standard algorithms (PAMS, PSQM, and PESQ), GL's VQT provides a widely accepted solution for assessing voice quality in the telecom industry. Voice Quality Testing across multiple networks (T1, E1, T3, E3, OC-3, OC-12, VoIP, Wireless, and Landline) is available.

GL’s Wireless Products perform protocol analysis and voice quality assessment on GSM, CDMA, UMTS, and LTE networks. Connections can be made to any wireless phone with automated call control, GPS mapping and real-time signal measurements.

GL’s Echo Canceller testing solutions provide the broadest range of simulation and analysis, including line and acoustic echo. GL’s compliance testing per G.168. G.167 and P.340 across TDM, IP, VoIP and Wireless networks is widely accepted in the industry.

GL’s wireless VQT solutions help assessing impairments to voice quality such as poor mobile phone quality, voice compression and decompression algorithms, delay, loss and gain in speech levels, noise, acoustic and landline echo, and other distortions are easily assessed and accurately measured.

GL’s Handheld data testers can test a wide variety of communications facilities and equipment including T1, fractional T1, E1, fractional E1, T3 and E3 modems, multiplexers, CSU, DSUs, T1 CSUs, DTUs, NTUs and TIUs and more. The testers provide convenience, economy, and portability for almost any interface, including RS232, RS-422, RS-530, X.21, T1, E1, T3, E3, and many others.

GL’s Network Surveillance and Monitoring products include Probes for TDM, IP, VoIP, ATM, and Wireless networks. An open standards based approach provides a scalable, feature rich, real-time access to network characteristics. Centralized or distributed access, efficient transport and database loading allow compatibility with 3rd party and standards based monitoring systems.
