  • (1888PressRelease) May 24, 2012 - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - GL Communications Inc. announced today the release of enhanced PacketScan™ software, an Ethernet/IP/VoIP Traffic Analyzer.

    Speaking to reporters, Mr. Karthik Ramalingam Manager Product Development of the company said, "PacketScan™ is a powerful software tool that features real-time capture of Ethernet, IP, VoIP, and IP based Video traffic with extensive analysis using graphs, and statistics. Some of the important applications of PacketScan™ are:

    ·Monitors live IPv4 and IPv6 networks,
    ·Segregates, captures, and collects statistics on VoIP calls (H.323, SIP, MGCP, Megaco, T.38, and many others),
    ·Monitors QOS (quality of service) on voice and video calls,
    ·Permits analysis of, and conformance to protocol standards for the system under test or observation,
    ·Provides graphical presentation of analysis, including ladder diagrams of protocols

    And PacketScan™ can monitor, report, analyze, and capture calls for theoretically infinite time, limited only by the finite space of your hard disk or network hard drive."

    He added, "Users can listen/record audio and video data of a session in real-time; perform power, frequency, spectral, tone and digit analysis, and video analysis with ease and precision; get an exact picture of QoS (quality of the service)."

    Mr. Ramalingam further added, "PacketScan™ can work with PacketScanWEB™ a central monitoring system for a comprehensive view of network performance. It features rich graphics, ladder diagrams, CDRs (Call Data Records), and compatibility with almost every voice CODEC."

    Important Enhancements Introduced to PacketScan™ Software:

    ·IPv6 Support

    The application is now enhanced to capture and analyze calls over IP version 6 (IPv6) Protocol.

    ·Extract Fax Image from Fax Call

    In addition to providing detail decodes of a FAX call, PacketScan™ now includes an option to extract Fax images (in TIFF format) from captured fax calls. The analyzer can also be set to trigger on fax calls and store the extracted fax images in a folder automatically during the capture.

    ·Additional Codec Support

    Supports two more codecs GSM-HR (Half Rate) and GSM-EFR (Enhanced Full Rate). Also supports MOS Scores for AMR_WB codec (for all 9 modes).

    ·Report Mid Call Digits

    Mid call outband digits detected on a call are now reported along with SIP signaling events in CSV

    ·Import Wireshark Traces

    Provides an option to Import Wireshark traces (.pcap and .cap) into the Analyzer. Wireshark traces can be converted to .HDL (GL's trace format) file and opened in the analyzer for analysis.
