GL Enhances OC-3/12 and STM-1/4 Analysis & Emulation Product
GL Communications Inc. announced today the release of its enhanced OC-3/STM-1 and OC-12/STM-4 Analysis and Emulation Card.
- (1888PressRelease) August 17, 2011 - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - Addressing a press conference, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia, Senior Manager at GL announced, "The LightSpeed 1000 is our enhanced Dual OC-3/STM-1 and OC-12/STM-4 PCI-Express card for protocol analysis and emulation of ATM, PoS, RAW, and Ethernet traffic. The product supports full duplex capture, real-time protocol analysis and emulation of ATM, PoS, RAW, and Ethernet traffic over optical lines. Also it provides Linux and Windows SDKs for OEM integration. Now, the software has been enhanced with the capability of Synchronous Multi board wire speed capture and transmission of packets/cells to/from files."
He added, "The card also supports 2 GigaBytes of DDR2 RAM, a GigE, and a USB 2.0 interface making this card one of the most versatile and powerful cards in GL's repertoire. LightSpeed 1000 comes with software for overall monitoring, BERT, emulation, and protocol analysis with a price tag that compares very favorably with similar test instruments at 3 times the price."
Mr. Vadalia further added, "Multiple cards are possible in a desktop or rack PC for analysis of 4 or more signals simultaneously. A portable platform that connects via a USB 2.0 interface to a Notebook PC is also available."
He added, "A unique feature of the card is the capability to capture and transmit at wire speed to/from hard disk on all interfaces. This is now possible with two cards simultaneously and synchronously."
Other Important and unique features:
•Ability to capture to disk at full rate in both directions without errors on two cards (four ports). This permits detailed offline analysis that is not possible with other test instruments. Capture is possible on Multiple Boards synchronously on all optical ports and the single Ethernet port. Triggered and filtered capture is also available.
•Wire speed BERT over ATM, PoS, and RAW formats on both ports simultaneously
•Complex and flexible filtering options: Sixteen 128 bit independently applied filters, both ports, 128 bit user defined mask per filter, AND/OR Boolean expressions, include and exclude conditions
•Hardware based precise time stamping of cells / packets with 10 nsec resolution
•Portability thru a USB 2.0 Interface
•Single Mode or Multi Mode Fiber SFP support
•High performance x4 PCIe compliant interface
•Onboard SODIMM memory (DDR2) - up to 2 Giga bytes
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) are all 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.
