Dual Universal Telephony Adaptor

The Dual Universal Telephony Adapter (Dual UTA) is a comprehensive hardware device designed to interface and test the voice and data quality of telecommunication networks.

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 its Dual Universal Telephony Adaptor (Dual UTA) hardware.

Speaking to the press, Mr. Robert Bichefsky Senior Manager of the company said, “The Dual Universal Telephony Adapter (Dual UTA) is a comprehensive hardware device designed to interface and test the voice and data quality of telecommunication networks. The Dual UTA features all the circuitry necessary to universally adapt to any telephony instrumentation, such as standard Plain Old Telephone Systems (POTS), digital hybrid interfaces, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks, wireless cellular phones and mobile radios including devices that utilize Bluetooth®, Broadband 3G/4G, LTE technologies.”

He added, “Used in conjunction with GL's VQuad™ software application, the Dual UTA simplifies end-to-end testing of voice quality, echo, noise, and other impairments of TDM, VoIP, and Wireless networks.

VQuad™ with Dual UTA supports mobile audio interface for Smartphones (iPhone, Android, Blackberry) where the Dual UTA acts as a headset connection to the Smartphone. Using Bluetooth® , the VQuad™ can send a variety of commands to the Smartphone to retrieve RSSI, Battery Level, and Network to name a few."

Mr. Bichefsky further explained, “VQuad™ can send commands to the Mobile Device Controller application residing on the smart phones to remotely perform Automated Data Testing (NetTest) including TCP, UDP capacity, VoIP, Route, HTTP, FTP, DNS and SMS irrespective of whether the phone is on a voice call or not.All results are retrieved by the Mobile Device Controller (MDC) and sent to the WebViewer™ Central Database via DataImport.

VQuad™ with Dual UTA supports Fax Testing (sending and receiving) up to 4 independent and simultaneous T.30 faxes. The user can configure the Tx and Rx fax rate from 2400 baud to 33600 baud with V.34 fully supported.”

Important Applications

·Send/Record audio for Voice and Data Testing, Echo Measurements over TDM, VoIP, and Wireless networks
·Network One-way delay measurements. (collocated or geographically separated)
·Network Round Trip Delay (RTD) measurements. (collocated or geographically separated)
·Echo measurement and analysis using Echo Measurement Utility (EMU)
·Automated Data Testing (NetTest) including TCP, UDP capacity, VoIP, Route, HTTP, FTP, DNS and SMS
·Acoustic echo canceller testing
·Automatic control of Push-to-talk phones/radios (key/unkey radio)
·Ability to generate and receive T.30 faxes using the Dual UTA 2-wire FXO or 4-wire analog interfaces. Fax testing for additional interfaces such as T1/E1 and VoIP (T.38) are coming soon.

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.
