Gaithersburg, Maryland (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
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 LightSpeed1000™ - OC-3 STM-1 OC-12 STM-4 Analysis and Emulation Cards.
Speaking to media persons, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia Senior Manager for Product Development of the company said, ” The LightSpeed1000™ is GL’s high performance software selectable Dual OC-3 / STM-1 and OC-12 / STM-4 PCI-Express card for wire-speed processing, recording, playing back of ATM, PoS, RAW, and Ethernet traffic.”
He added, “The card’s multiple connectivity using PCIe, Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), USB 2.0 and onboard DDR2 memory makes it suitable for various applications. The LightSpeed1000™ comes with software for overall monitoring, BERT, emulation, and protocol analysis with a price tag that compares very favorably with similar test instruments at three times the price. Multiple cards are possible in a PC for analysis of four or more directions simultaneously”.
Mr. Vadalia further added, “LightSpeed1000™’s various interfaces like PCI-Express, USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet and opens many possibilities like USB 2.0 interface used to connect with a Notebook PC, Ethernet testing for BERT / RFC2544, SONET and Ethernet bridge, and so on. The analyzer card is built upon FPGA technology to upgrade it in the field. A unique feature of the card is the capability to capture, transmit and process at wirespeed to/from applications and hard disk on all interfaces. API Toolkit allows user to develop specialized applications.”
·Wire-speed processing of ATM, PoS or RAW data for Tx and Rx for both ports
·Software selectable OC-3(STM-1) or OC-12(STM-4) for ATM, PoS or Transparent Traffic

·API Toolkit to develop user specific applications
·Optional onboard SODIMM memory (DDR2) – up to 2 Giga bytes
·Hardware independent of higher level protocol for easy adaptation of future protocols
·Field upgradable firmware
·Supports MS-Windows® and Linux operating systems
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.
