Gaithersburg, Maryland (PRWEB) August 08, 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 Software Ethernet Tester.
Speaking to media persons, Mr. Vijay Kulkarni CEO of the company said, ”GL's enhanced software ethernet tester PacketCheck™ is a comprehensive PC based Ethernet / IP test tool with BERT and Throughput testing abilities. It is very easy to use as a general-purpose network performance analysis tool for 10Mbps, 100Mbps and 1Gbps LANs and WANs. Throughput up to 800 Mbps can be easily tested.”
He added, “The application generates multi stream Ethernet/IP/UDP traffic with on-demand bandwidth (up to 800 Mbps) and measures end to end performance such as Bit Error Rate, Total Packets, Packet loss, Out of Sequence Packets, and Erred Packets. Additional features include transmission of pre-recorded file traffic, IFG (Inter Frame Gap) traffic generation mode, delay measurements, impairment generation, and BER testing capability with provision to generate PRBS patterns or user–defined test patterns.”
Mr. Kulkarni further added, “PacketCheck™ supports features like transmission of pre-recorded file traffic, which can duplicate packet traffic as it occurred at a particular Ethernet interface. It also includes a Command Line Interface (CLI) to support all the GUI functionalities of PacketCheck™ through simple commands, allowing easy scripting and automation of the testing. Also included is a powerful Report Generation feature to view report in XML and PDF formats. It can operate on any of the layers - Layer 1 (Physical), Layer 2 (Data Link), Stacked VLAN (Q-in-Q), Layer 2.5 (Stacked MPLS), Layer 3 (Network), and Layer 4 (Transport) of the OSI reference model.”
Some of the Important Features:
·Capability to test Ethernet or IP traffic of up to 800 Mbps bandwidth.
·Generates full duplex IP, UDP, or Ethernet frame traffic to transmit and/or receive traffic on any of the four layers (Layer1, Data Link with stacked VLAN/ MPLS, Network, Transport) with on-demand bandwidth
·Multi-stream traffic generation for each stream including different frame size, bandwidth, MAC, MPLS, IP and UDP parameters, payload, and mode of operation (Tx only /Rx only /TxRx only) etc.
·Customizable VLAN stacks up to 3 levels with headers such as VLAN Type, ID, and Priority
·Customizable stacked MPLS layers up to 3 levels with headers such as Label, CoS, TTL
·Customizable protocol headers like MAC Source/Destination address, Length/Type field, IP Source/destination address, and UDP Source/Destination Port.
·Bit-error-rate testing (BERT) on layer 1, layer 2, layer 2.5, layer 3, and layer 4 with various measurements - Bit Error Rate, Sync Loss Count, Bit Error Count, and more
·PRBS Pattern Generation/Verification of various patterns like QRSS26-1, 29-1, 211-1, 215-1, 220-1, 223-1
·User Defined test patterns – up to 24 bytes length
·Simulate real-world traffic (such as IPTV, RTP,…) by transmitting pre-captured GL proprietary HDL files
·Capability to generate various run-time impairments – Insert/Delete Bytes, and Byte Level Impairments (AND, OR, XOR).
