Gaithersburg, Maryland (PRWEB) May 28, 2013

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 enhanced Packet and VoIP Network Monitoring System.

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia Senior Manager for Product Development of the Company said, “The Packet and VoIP network Monitoring System uses GL's Packet probe called "PacketScan™" and/ or Voice band Analyzer, PacketProbe™ to monitor packet flows in real-time within a VoIP network. All major VoIP protocols are supported including SIP, H.323, Megaco, SIGTRAN, RTP, and MGCP. A central database stores the real-time and historic data. The system also facilitates various views using a web interface known as ‘PacketScanWeb™.“

He explained, “PacketScan™ probe a feature-robust Windows® based software tool that captures and monitors live IP traffic in a non-intrusive fashion and forwards call detail records (CDRs) as well as statistics to a central database. PacketScan™ performs detailed analysis of voice band streams gathering QOS statistics such as MOS (Mean Opinion Score), total packet count, reordered, duplicate and missing packet counts, packet gap, jitter, and delay. In the VoIP world, it can monitor and measure SIP, H323, Megaco, MGCP, T.38 and video calls. In addition to quality metrics PacketScan™ also captures signaling information and sends that to the PacketScanWeb™ database as well.

PacketProbe™ is a lightweight Linux based tool that only operates on SIP or raw RTP and does not capture or transmit signaling information. A central database which will store the data collected by the probes and a WebServer which will provide real-time and historic views of the data through various "browser based" clients.

PacketScanWeb™ facilitates result display using a web interface. With this, one can view real-time data, navigate through records, filter the collected VoIP traffic summary, and graphically analyze the call volume, MOS, call completion, failed calls, completed calls, PDD, and so on through a simple web browser.”
