GL Communications Inc., announced today its versatile Multi-Protocol, Multi-Technology Test Platform.

GL Communications Inc., a leader in providing PC-based test, analysis and simulation products and consulting services to the worldwide telecommunications industry, announced today its versatile Multi-Protocol, Multi-Technology Test Platform.

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia Senior Manager for Product Development of the Company said, “GL's Multi-Protocol, Multi-Technology Test Platform is Message Automation & Protocol Simulation (MAPS™). And it is a protocol simulation and conformance test tool that supports a variety of protocols such as SIP, MEGACO, MGCP, SS7, ISDN, GSM, MAP, CAS, LTE, UMTS, SS7 SIGTRAN, ISDN SIGTRAN, SIP I, GSM AoIP, Diameter and others. This message automation tool covers solutions for both protocol simulation and protocol analysis. The application includes various test plans and test cases to support the testing of real-time entities. Along with automation capability, the application gives users the unlimited ability to edit messages and control scenarios (message sequences). "'Message sequences" are generated through scripts."

He added, “GL's MAPS™ is designed to work on TDM interfaces as well as on the Ethernet interfaces. TDM signaling protocols such as SS7, ISDN, MLPPP, CAS, MAP CAP and GSM operate over TDM networks, where as VoIP protocols SIP, SIP-I, MEGACO, MGCP operate over IP networks.”

Mr. Vadalia further added, “MAPS™ also supports 3G & 4G mobile protocol standards for testing the rapidly evolving mobile technologies. MAPS™ can simulate radio signaling protocols such as LTE (S1, eGTP, X2) interfaces and UMTS (IuCS, IuPS, IuH), GSM AoIP, SS7 SIGTRAN, Diameter, and ISDN SIGTRAN over IP as transport layer.”

Main Features

·Unparalleled robustness in analysis and simulation capability in protocol tester
·Provides fault insertion, and erroneous call flows testing capability.
·Functional testing, Regression testing and Conformance testing of network elements
·“Call Scenarios / Message Sequences” are generated through scripts
·Unlimited ability to edit messages and control scenarios (call scenarios/message sequences)
·Ready to use scripts make testing procedure simpler and less time-consuming, resulting in reduced ‘time-to-market’
·Supports transmission and detection of various TDM, GSM, Ethernet, & RTP traffic such as, digits, voice file, single tone, dual tones, fax, sms, email, http, ftp, and video
·SMS Testing from within the Wireless Infrastructure using MAPS™
·Supports scripting through a Command Line Interface (CLI) such as the Python, and TCL, using MAPS™ client-server functionality (requires additional license)
·Interactive GUI to view Status, Results, Call Information, Total Iterations to be done, and Total number of Completed Iterations
