GL Communications Inc.conveyed today the availability of its product MAPS™ MGCP Protocol Emulator – Scripted MGCP Protocol Emulation.

MAPS™ MGCP Emulator

GL’s Message Automation & Protocol Simulation (MAPS™ MGCP) is an advanced protocol simulator/tester traffic generator designed for MGCP testing, which can simulate MGC to test Media Gateways with various types of calls.

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 product MAPS™ MGCP Protocol Emulator – Scripted MGCP Protocol Emulation.

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia Senior Manager said, ”The Media Gateway Control Protocol (MGCP) is a signaling and call control protocol used between the Media Gateway Controller (MGC) and Media Gateway (MG). The MGC uses MGCP to instruct MG about the events, media, signals to be played on Endpoint, to create a Connection, and to audit the status of the Endpoints and connections involved in the conversion of media from one type of network, to the media required in other type of the network. The Media Gateway uses MGCP to report events (such as off-hook, or dialed digits) to the Call Agent.“

He added, “GL’s Message Automation & Protocol Simulation (MAPS™ MGCP) is an advanced protocol simulator/tester traffic generator designed for MGCP testing, which can simulate MGC to test Media Gateways with various types of calls. It can also control scenario involved in Media conversion. This test tool can also be used to perform protocol conformance testing (MGCP protocol implementations) as per IETF Standard according to RFC 3435.”

Mr. Vadalia further added, “The MAPS™ MGCP Protocol Conformance Test Suite is designed with 70+ test cases, as per RFC 3435. Test suite includes in-built scripts, which tests the functionality of the Media Gateway for MGCP protocol valid and in-valid behavior.”

·Script based & protocol independent software architecture.
·Provides call statistics with associated captured events and error events during call simulation
·Logging of all messages in real-time

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.
