Press Release: GL Announces Enhanced PacketScanWeb™ Software
(Real-time Network Monitoring System for VoIP Networks)
Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - August 9, 2010 - GL Communications Inc., announced today the release
of its enhanced PacketScanWebTM software - A real-time network monitoring system for VoIP networks. Disclosing the
news to the press, Mr. Karthik Ramalingam, Project Manager said,
"PacketScanWeb™ along with GLís PacketScan™, Listener, and
Oracle database, provide the essential elements for a centralized packet monitoring system. PacketScan™ is a
powerful tool that captures live VoIP traffic, and segregates into SIP, H323, Megaco, or MGCP type calls. Hundreds to
thousands of calls can be monitored in real-time including detailed analysis of selected voice band streams.
PacketScanWeb™ is a network monitoring extension of
PacketScan™, wherein multiple PacketScanís monitor and provide statistics to a central database. With
PacketScanWeb™, users can assess in real-time various network
wide statistics using a simple web based interface".
He added, "Using any browser-capable-device, you can access the results from anywhere in the world. The Real-time
data consisting of details of all calls captured or measured by various PacketScan™ probes are displayed.
PacketScanWeb™ provides various statistics such as, Probe Name,
Calling/Called Number, Start Time, Call Duration, Session Request Delay (ms), Session Disconnect Delay (ms),
Originating IP Address, and Destination IP Address".
Mr. Ramalingam further added, "Call Detail Records" can be displayed based on time filter or record index and have
an option to export into PDF form. Each Call detail is depicted by message sequence which gives ladder diagram of the
call flow between the Called and the Calling numbers. And enhanced Graphs & Reports view provides an overall
summary of the captured packet traffic over the entire network with the help of useful graphs such as Call Volume
Display, Call Failure Cause, Session Request Delay (SRD), Listening and Conversational MOS Display".
Important New Features
- Ability to Export both Reports view(Graphical) and tabular view into PDF
- Custom Paging with options like Previous, Next, First, Last and user defined page for navigation of records
- Check option to generate all/selected kinds of reports at a glance
- Display of records with an option to select Time filter like calendar day or user defined filter
Other Features Include
- Accessible remotely via browser based clients
- Multi-user support, and user-friendly interface
- Database stores the real-time and historic data collected
- Supports interfacing with Oracle database
- Provides database query methods to gather status, statistics, events & query results
