ommunications Inc., announced today the release of its System-Wide Network Testing Solutions for various interfaces including Mobile, Bluetooth®, 2-Wire Analog FXO, 4-Wire Balanced Analog, Phone Handset, PTT Radio, VoIP SIP, T1/E1 PRI/CAS. Speaking to the press, Mr. Robert Bichefsky, Senior Manager at GL said, “Voice quality, signaling methods, and delay vary with each type of network - wireless, PSTN, or VoIP. An end to end network test system that can easily interface to each network type and automatically and centrally perform vital measurements is desirable. And GL has just such a solution”.
He added, “GL's system consists of individual probes, fixed and mobile, remotely controlled, and automated through scripts and schedules. All results are automatically cataloged and easily accessed by a standard web browser. Measurements such as call failures, voice quality, delay, and echo are made for each and every call. The data is centrally available and accessible from a single location with user friendly filtering and querying capabilities”.
Mr. Bichefsky further elaborated and told, “As shown below in the picture, GL's solution deploys intrusive probes that connect to any interface, and these intrusive probes run GL's VQuad™ software. Non-intrusive probes may also deployed at various points within the VoIP and TDM networks. All results associated with the intrusive and non-intrusive nodes are automatically transferred to a central location where analysis applications, databases, and a Command Center provide for automated operation, email alerts, and a web server. Users may access the command center and databases via a standard web browser”.
He added, “GL’s WebViewer™ is a web based browser and one can easily and remotely connect to the central database over any internet connection. And it supports querying the central database and includes advanced search criteria such as time/date range, phone number, measurement threshold values, and call progress events”.
