Press Release: GL Enhances OC-3/12 and STM-1/4 Analysis & Emulation Products

Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - August 16, 2011 - GL Communications Inc. announced today the release of its enhanced OC-3/STM-1 and OC-12/STM-4 Analysis and Emulation Card. Addressing a press conference, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia, Senior Manager at GL announced, “The LightSpeed1000™ 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. LightSpeed1000™ 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
