[ClickPress, Mon Aug 09 2010] GL Communications Inc., announced today the release of its enhanced PacketScanWebTM software - A real-time network monitoring system for VoIP networks. Disclosing the news to the press, Mr. Karthik Ramalingam, Project Manager said, “PacketScanWeb™ along with GL’s PacketScan™, Listener, and Oracle database, provide the essential elements for a centralized packet monitoring system. PacketScan™ is a powerful tool that captures live VoIP traffic, and segregates into SIP, H323, Megaco, or MGCP type calls. Hundreds to thousands of calls can be monitored in real-time including detailed analysis of selected voice band streams. PacketScanWeb™ is a network monitoring extension of PacketScan™, wherein multiple PacketScan’s monitor and provide statistics to a central database. With PacketScanWeb™, users can assess in real-time various network wide statistics using a simple web based interface”.
He added, “Using any browser-capable-device, you can access the results from anywhere in the world. The Real-time data consisting of details of all calls captured or measured by various PacketScan™ probes are displayed. PacketScanWeb™ provides various statistics such as, Probe Name, Calling/Called Number, Start Time, Call Duration, Session Request Delay (ms), Session Disconnect Delay (ms), Originating IP Address, and Destination IP Address”.
Mr. Ramalingam further added, “Call Detail Records” can be displayed based on time filter or record index and have an option to export into PDF form. Each Call detail is depicted by message sequence which gives ladder diagram of the call flow between the Called and the Calling numbers. And enhanced Graphs & Reports view provides an overall summary of the captured packet traffic over the entire network with the help of useful graphs such as Call Volume Display, Call Failure Cause, Session Request Delay (SRD), Listening and Conversational MOS Display”.

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, STM-1, 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, etc.), and with capacities up to thousands of channels.
GL’s VoIP and IP products generate / analyze thousands of calls / traffic simultaneously with traffic types such as frames, packets, voice files, digits, video, tones, noise, and fax using G.711, G.729, AMR, EVRC, GSM and a range of other codecs. 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 excepted solution across the telecom industry. Voice Quality Testing across multiple networks (T1, E1, T3, E3, OC-3, VoIP, Wireless, and Landline) are all available.
GL’s Wireless Products perform protocol analysis and voice quality assessment on GSM, CDMA and UMTS 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 compliance testing per G.168 and G.160 across TDM, IP, VoIP and Wireless networks. 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 intelligence. Centralized or distributed access, efficient transport and database loading allow compatibility with 3rd party and standards based monitoring systems.
