Gaithersburg, Maryland (PRWEB) May 16, 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 embedded VoIP Monitoring Software Solution.
Speaking to media persons, Mr. Robert Bichefsky Senior Manager for product development of the company said, “Voice over IP (VoIP) has become a widely accepted technology, but like most IP applications, it requires attention to detail to be successfully deployed. Tools like PacketProbe™ can be used to ensure successful deployments, and can also be used to help with network design, ensuring that the most efficient topologies are implemented.”
He added, “GL's PacketProbe™ is an advanced CPE (Customer Premises Equipment) based VoIP monitoring reporting and diagnostic appliance, stemming from GL's suite of market leading voice analysis tools. It passively monitors VoIP traffic carried over WAN/LAN by producing real-time per call and per-stream voice quality metrics. Call Detailed Records (CDRs) along with voice quality statistics including Mean Opinion Score (MOS) and other vital diagnostic information provide network managers immediate visibility into service quality, call volumes, and call details.”
Mr. Bichefsky further added, “PacketProbe™ software can be used as an Real-time Monitoring, Reporting and Diagnostic tool. It can fit seamlessly into any existing standards based management or reporting environment, such as SNMP or RADIUS. PacketProbes™ can provide vital voice call quality statistics, Call Detail Records and Quality of Service metrics at the end of each call”
