Automated Analog (2-wire, 4- wire)
Voice Quality Testing

Overview | Main Features | Buyer's Guide


Assuring uninterrupted high quality voice within a network is critical irrespective of the type of network carrying the voice. Testing these networks can become cumbersome, time consuming and quite costly.
GL provides the solution for testing 2-wire and 4-Wire WB Analog interfaces using GL's VQuad™ and  Dual UTA HD.

VQuad™ with Dual UTA HD provides a complete automated network testing solution. This includes 2-wire WB Analog FXO interfaces (RJ-11) and, when coupled with the GL VQT, provides the necessary voice quality measurement and analysis tools.

Dual UTA HD 2-Wire FXO and 4-Wire Analog supports both Wide Band (WB) and Narrow Band (NB). 2-Wire Analog FXO can connect to any 2-wire interface (PSTN, ATA, Gateway) anywhere. Dual UTA HD 4-wire Analog connects to Balanced (headset -mic/speaker), RJ22 (phone Handset), PTT (Push to Talk) connecting to any mobile radio (DoD, Emergency Services, Government) and to any mobile phone, the phone will recognize the Dual UTA HD as a headset.

The analog ports may be connected to any U.S or European PSTN and, using the user-friendly VQuad™ GUI, the user can place calls to any desirable number as well as answer incoming calls in a manual or automated manner. The product can be configured manually to send and record voice files or configured to automatically send/record multiple voice files to be used in the VQT algorithms. In addition, the VQuad™ can send and detect DTMF digits while the call is established. This allows two-stage dialing as well as path confirmation.

The VQuad™ with Dual UTA HD also adds the functionality for Round Trip Delay and One Way Delay measurements. The Dual UTA HD also support Echo measurements, multiple tone detection (including busy, fast busy, SIT), Caller ID detection and display, and Flash Hook. The Dual UTA HD FXO is fully user configurable and allows any type of connection and multiple stage dialing (including immediate connect for PBX systems). Click here for more details on Dual UTA HD.

VQuad™ can also work with handheld analog tester – vHandi™ to automated voice quality testing on analog lines. vHandi™ is a very compact handheld tester, perfect for field testing designed to simulate an FXO device.

24-Port VQuad™ HD Analog Phone Simulator

VQuad™ 24-port HD FXO solution is an all-in-one 2U rack supporting both Wide Band (WB) and Narrow Band (NB) Audio. The 2U VQuad™ HD FXO system incorporates two embedded SBCs (Single Board Computer), each running latest VQuad™ software, along with 12 Dual UTA HD units supporting a total 24 FXO Analog ports. All 24 FXO ports are independent and can be fully automated or remote controlled for a fully autonomous test solution. Access to the 24 Analog ports is via an Amphenol connector on the back of the system which can be broken out to 24 RJ11 connections. Each embedded SBC includes two Gigabit Ethernet connections, two USB connections, and a VGA monitor connection. LED lights on the front of the 2U Rack display status of each SBC along with each Dual UTA HD.

Multiple VQuad 24-Port FXO Racks can be connected together for virtually unlimited FXO ports. When combined with the WebViewer Central System all results and events can be saved directly to a Central Database and accessed using the WebViewer (direct access to the database tables is also available). Analysis is provided using GL Voice Quality Analysis (both POLQA and PESQ supported), Echo Measurement Utility (EMU), Fax Analysis, and Voice Band Analyzer (VBA).

  • Supports 24 independent HD FXO ports per VQuad™ system (2U)
  • Scalable solution for unlimited number of FXO ports
  • Wide Band (WB) and Narrow Band (NB) support (for HD and SD Audio)
  • Multiple Users and Tests per system
  • Run tests between systems
  • Fully automated and remote accessible via CLI
  • Remote accessible via Central Database
  • Full FXO Functionality and Analysis via flexible Scripts

Voice Quality Testing (VQT)

GL's VQT may be executed automatically (real-time and/or post-processing) or manually by entering a Reference File and Degraded File. Regardless of how GL's VQT is initiated, algorithms for POLQA, PAMS, PSQM, PSQM+, PESQ MOS and PESQ LQ are executed simultaneously for the two voice files and results are shown in graphically as well as in tabular format. GL’s VQT supports POLQA WB Analysis (ITU-P.863). GL's VQT also displays cumulative statistics for large scale testing over long periods of time.
