GL Communications Inc. announced today enhancements introduced to its Network Monitoring and Test Products.

Speaking to reporters, Mr. Matthew Yost, Manager for product development of the company said, “Network monitoring and testing for the purpose of verifying function and quality of network elements is vital for any organization whether small or large. Today's hybrid networks, based on feature rich new technologies, often break, in contrast to yesterday's basic, dull, single source, but reliable networks.

This is especially true in the converging communications and computers sector, often called Unified Communications (UC). In today's home or office, it is common to have power outages (and the grave consequences that follow), PC's that crash or get infected, phone service that is unreliable or of poor quality, broadband lines that often fail or slow down, and even entire networks suddenly out of service; the list is endless. Small or large enterprises and carriers must protect their network elements (sometimes 24/7) to provide the quality of service users expect. Anything short of this can be aggravating and reduce efficiency and productivity.”

He added, “GL has developed scalable network monitoring and testing probes and centralized collection and reporting systems for today's telecom networks. They provide instant visibility into the performance and operation of TDM, VoIP, and Wireless networks. Maintenance engineers can securely access the network view from literally "anywhere" that Internet access is available. They can also monitor, diagnose, and troubleshoot remotely with simple to use scripts.”

Mr. Yost further added, “Common characteristics of our Network Monitoring and Test Systems are: Uniform Features across all Network Monitoring Systems, Scalable Probes, Common Database Servers and Listeners and Webservers. Common characteristics across TDM, VoIP and Wireless Network Monitoring Systems result in seamless integration of enhancements introduced to any one network monitoring system into other systems automatically. The uniformity across network management system also helps in uniform reports, administration and maintenance.”

He added, "GL has a range of network management systems and they include: PacketScanWeb™ for All-IP network monitoring, and also for protocols over IP and Wireless networks; The NetSurveyorWeb™ application for SS7, ISDN, GSM, and also for other protocols over TDM, and Wireless networks. The application also helps in T1 E1 Physical Layer monitoring; And VQT WebViewer™ application is for monitoring voice and data quality over all networks.”

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.

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) are all 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 Voice Quality Testing (VQT) solutions help assess impairments in 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.

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.
