GL Communications Inc. conveyed today the availability of its product SS7 Protocol Analyzer software.

SS7 (C7) Protocol Analyzer

GL's SS7 (C7) Analyzer performs SS7 analysis in real-time, as well as off-line. The real-time mode of operation is used to capture and analyze stream of frames on the SS7 Links. Captured information can be saved to disk for later off-line analysis

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 SS7 Protocol Analyzer software.

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Vijay Kulkarni CEO of the company said, ” GL's SS7 (C7) Analyzer performs SS7 analysis in real-time, as well as off-line. The real-time mode of operation is used to capture and analyze stream of frames on the SS7 Links. Captured information can be saved to disk for later off-line analysis.”

He added, “ The SS7 Analyzer decodes different SS7 layers like MTP2, MTP3, ISUP, TUP, SCCP, INAP (CS1, CS2), IUP, BICC, BISUP, BTUP and many application layer protocols from GSM/GPRS network like MAP, CAMEL (CAP), IS 41 etc according to ANSI/ITU/ETSI/CHINA/UK standards and displayed in an organized fashion.”

Some of the important features

·Interfaces supported are
.B (Interface b/w the MSC and its associated VLR)
.C (Interface b/w the HLR and the MSC)
.D (Interface b/w the HLR and the VLR)
.E (Interface b/w MSCs)
.F(Interface b/w MSC and EIR)
.H (Interface between HLR and AuC)
.J (Interface b/w the HLR and the gsmSCF)
.·Capable of decoding many important protocols from GSM/GPRS network i.e. MAP, CAP.
·Statistics View displays call and MSU statistics at any link or entire link set.
·Call trace isolates call specific information i.e. status of each call (i.e. active/completed), duration of completed call, OPC, DPC, CIC, Called and Calling Party Numbers, and more.
·Supports decoding of frames with FCS of 16 bits and 32 bits, or none
·Multiple streams of SS7 traffic on various T1/E1 channels can be simultaneously decoded with different GUI instances.
·Capability to export detail decodes information to an ASCII file.
·Recorded trace files can be played back using HDLC Playback application.
·Flexibility to select/hide the call trace columns as required by the user.
·Call Detail Recording feature includes data link groups that help in defining the direction of the calls in a given network and form logical groups comprised of unidirectional (either 'Forward' or 'Backward') data links.
·Supports filtering and search based on Frame length, FSN, BSN, SSN, and so on.
·HDLC (according to Q.921) based SS7 frames are parsed based on ANSI and ITU standards.
·Ability to configure the .ini file for custom decoding options such as SSN value of INAP, MAP, CAP, TCAP and IS41, and more.
·Remote monitoring capability using GL's Network Surveillance System.

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
