Echo Performance Testing and Verification

The Echo Performance Testing application allows you to apply delay, attenuation, and/or filtering to a received signal on any number of timeslots.

Gaithersburg, Md. (PRWEB) February 12, 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 the availability of its software for Echo Performance Testing and Verification.

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Vijay Kulkarni CEO of the company said, ” The Echo Performance Testing application allows you to apply delay, attenuation, and/or filtering to a received signal on any number of timeslots. Delay/Attenuate Timeslots is an 'input-process-output' application, that is, a block of data is retrieved from the Rx Data Source; is processed by delaying, attenuating, and/or filtering it; and then retransmitting the processed block on the Tx Destination. You may also mix in additional signals from a number of sources, including: Speech and/or Noise signals from files, Speech signals inserted via VF input, Gaussian noise signals generated internally. Transmitted signaling bits may be Onhook/Offhook, user-specified, or passed through from received to transmitted timeslots."

He added, “The Delay/Attenuate Timeslots application may receive and transmit on either one or two boards. There are a number of different operating configurations, the most common and useful are: Looping back a processed signal - Applying delay, attenuation, and filtering to a received signal and retransmitting the processed signal on the same board on which it was received. Speech and/or noise may also be mixed in. Applying pure delay to a signal. A received signal is delayed before being retransmitted. Inserting a Simulated Echo Loop. A two-board system is inserted into a T1 or E1 trunk and is used to simulate an echo path having known characteristics.”

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.
