Network Surveillance System

GL provides a variety of solutions for network wide monitoring and surveillance. The solutions consist of: Intrusive and non-intrusive "probes" for TDM, VoIP, and Wireless networks.

Gaithersburg, Maryland (PRWEB) January 24, 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 Network Test, Monitoring, and Surveillance software for TDM, VoIP and Wireless Networks.

Speaking to media persons, Mr. Robert Bichefsky Senior Manager for product development of the company said, ” GL provides a variety of solutions for network wide monitoring and surveillance. The solutions consist of: Intrusive and non-intrusive "probes" for TDM, VoIP, and Wireless networks, these probes deployed at strategic locations in a network can transmit and collect voice, data, protocol, statistics, and performance information, and relay this information to a central / distributed network management system (NMS), the NMS may be client server based or WEB based system and consists of a database and applications for controlling, collecting, and analyzing the information provided by the various probes.”

He added, “GL’s Packet Monitoring and Surveillance System uses GL's Ethernet probe called "PacketScan™" to monitor packet flows in real-time within a VoIP network. All major VoIP protocols are supported including SIP, H.323, Megaco, and MGCP. PacketScan™ also performs detailed analysis of voice band streams gathering QOS statistics such as MOS (Mean Opinion Score), total packet count, reordered, duplicate and missing packet counts, gap, jitter, and delay. A central database stores the real-time and historic data. The system also facilitates various views using a web interface.

GL’s SS7, ISDN, and Wireless Protocol Monitoring and Surveillance System provides a uniform method for monitoring the various protocols and content of TDM, VoIP, and Wireless networks. Intelligent protocol analyzers extract relevant content and supply this to a central NMS for storage, display, and control.

GL’s Voice-band Analyzer (VBA) is an analysis tool for capturing and monitoring the quality of voice band traffic over VoIP, TDM and wireless networks. VBA works in conjunction with GL's TDM, Packet, and Wireless non-intrusive capture products. VBA instantly detects voice file captures and with appropriately installed analysis modules, monitors speech levels, noise levels, and line echo. Other analysis modules such as ITU-T P.561, P.562, P.563, fax and modem analysis, and many others can be hosted as plug-ins.

GL’s Wirelss, Wireline, and VoIP Voice Quality Testing and Monitoring System provides real-time voice quality measurement across a diverse set of networks. Voice calls are automatically placed between end points; quality is measured and provided for display at an NMS. Voice measurements include MOS (Mean Opinion Score), round trip delay (RTD), jitter, clipping, voice levels, etc.”

Mr. Bichefsky further added, “GL's T1 E1 Network Monitoring System provides network wide management of T1 and E1 lines including line health, intrusive diagnostics, non-intrusive monitoring, and much more. 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.”

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.
