In addition to the above new applications, there are also significant enhancements introduced to existing applications. They include:


A brief summary of the new applications in the T1 E1 Analyzer - 5.24 Release are provided below:

MAPS™ SS7

  • GL's MAPS™ SS7 is a client-server based simulation / testing tool designed to simulate Service Switching Point (SSP) and ISUP signaling per the ITU-T and ANSI specification standards
  • Generate ISUP signaling calls with pre-defined templates and profiles
  • Automatic response to incoming ISUP messages
  • Supports powerful utilities like Message Editor, Script Editor, and Profile Editor which allow new scenarios to be created or existing scenarios to be modified using ISUP messages and parameters
Top

MAPS™ SS7/ISUP Conformance Testing

  • GL's MAPS™ SS7 Conformance Test Scripts is an application that is used for conformance and functional tests, where test objects can be accurately, reliably and easily validated for compliance with ITU-T standard Q.761-764 and Q.784.

MAPS-ISDN

  • GL's MAPS-ISDN is a client-server based simulation / testing tool designed to simulate ISDN signaling as defined by the ITU-T standards. This application can generate high volume of ISDN traffic over TDM (T1 E1) lines
  • Generate ISDN signaling calls with pre-defined templates and profiles
  • Automatic response to incoming ISDN messages
  • Supports powerful utilities like Message Editor, Script Editor, and Profile Editor which allow new scenarios to be created or existing scenarios to be modified using ISDN messages and parameters

GSM A Interface Emulator

  • GL's GSM A Interface Emulator is an advanced protocol simulation / testing tool for GSM simulation over A Interface that can simulate BSSMAP and DTAP messages and signaling specification as defined by 3GPP standards
  • Capable to generate BSSMAP and DTAP signaling calls with pre-defined templates and profiles
  • Automatic response to the incoming BSSMAP and DTAP messages
  • Supports powerful utilities like Message Editor, Script Editor, and Profile Editor which allow new scenarios to be created or existing scenarios to be modified using BSSMAP and DTAP messages and parameters

GSM Abis Interface Emulator

  • GL's GSM Abis Interface Emulator is an advanced protocol simulator/ tester for GSM simulation over Abis Interface that can simulate BTSM messages and signaling specification as defined by 3GPP standards
  • Capable to generate BTSM signaling calls with pre-defined templates and profiles
  • Automatic response to the incoming BTSM messages
  • Supports powerful utilities like Message Editor, Script Editor, and Profile Editor which allow new scenarios to be created or existing scenarios to be modified using BTSM messages and parameters

TRAU Tx/Rx Test

  • GL's TRAU Tx/Rx Test is a client-server based application that can simulate & analyze TRAU/CCU (BTS or BSC end) on GL's T1 E1 cards. The module is capable of generating and receiving TRAU traffic on either 8kbps or 16 kbps sub-channel. The application can impair or apply delay to the TRAU stream either during transmission or prior to transmission.

Network Surveyor

  • A separate installation has been built for Network Surveyor software

Frame Relay Emulator

  • GL's Frame Relay Emulator simulates standard and Multi-Link Frame Relay (MFR) protocols. The application permits users to add and remove FR links from MFR bundle, create Virtual Channels /Aggregate Virtual Channels, and send / receive traffic over an established link with or without impairments. The various traffic options includes sequence numbers, hex string, binary data, and GL's file format *.HDL.

For comprehensive information on the new applications, please refer to Protocol Analyzers web page.


Important Enhancements:

T1 E1 Analyzer

  • A new submenu under Special Applications called Protocol Emulation has been added to include simulation tools
  • CAS Emulator can be launched from T1 E1 Analyzer
  • ISDN Emulator and MLPPP Emulator have been moved under newly added submenu Protocol Emulation under Special Applications
  • New Xilinx load for Universal, HD and USB cards
  • Universal T1 E1 Card has been enhanced to work on Windows Vista operating system

Multiple Call Capture

  • Capturing based on various traffic triggering types is provided with Start Trigger and Stop Trigger options. The start traffic triggering includes various traffic types such as Fax/Modem files, Voice, FSK, DTMF digits, and more. Capturing can be terminated using Stop trigger option, either by specifying a period of uninterrupted "silence" that exceeds the user-defined time limit in seconds or by specifying the capture limit time in minutes
  • The application is enhanced to capture T1 Signaling bits into a separate signaling file
  • GUI options under Configuration and Call Storage tab have been reorganized

Protocol Analyzers

  • ISDN Analyzer is enhanced to support new protocols DASS2 and DPNSS
  • SS7 Analyzer
    • SS7 Analyzer is enhanced to support ISUP UK protocol standard
    • The IUP (BTUP) decoding layer has been updated. This also includes CallTrace implementation for BTUP. The specification used to decode includes ND1006:2005/02 PNO-ISC/SPEC/006 - Interconnect User Part (IUP) and ND1104:2004/11 PNO-ISC/INFO/004 - Proprietary Extensions To C7 Interconnect User Part (IUP)
  • Frame Relay Analyzer
    • Frame relay analyzer has been enhanced to decode the FRF.12 fragment that supports both UNI-NNI fragmentation and End-to-End fragmentation. In case of End to End fragmentation, branching has been done on the NLPID value to decode the fragmentation layer. In case of UNI and NNI fragmentation, the frame starts with the fragmentation header, followed by the Frame Relay header. First the fragmentation header will be decoded after that Frame Relay header will be decoded. If there is no fragmentation header then only Frame Relay Header will be decoded
    • Stream Interface Selection has been updated to add/delete MFR bundles and frame relay links. In addition, multiple cards can be selected to capture the frames simultaneously in a single instance
  • ATM Analyzer
    • AtmProt has been enhanced to support decoding of OAM and IP payload over ATM

MC-BERT

  • MCBERT optional application has been enhanced to synchronize with the smaller files with support of non-random user defined pattern
  • A configuration option has been included to save and load the selected stream into a configuration file

Windows Client Server

  • Licensing has been included for dynamic DSP operations
  • WCS - The "monitor [mf | dtmf | mfr2f | mfr2b] digits" command now accepts a configuration file by which the various settings may be established. A table of settings is currently being published in the "GL Server Command Reference"
  • DspOp - The MTMonDspOp operator (script name "[dtmf | mf | mfr2f | mfr2b] digit monitor") has been enhanced to accept a configuration file by which the various settings may be established. In addition, the settings can be modified "on the fly" via the "inform task" command. A table of settings is currently being published in the "GL Server Guide to DSP Operations"
  • GLSSPLib/MTDet - The tone detector was enhanced to support qualification times. It also now uses a hangover method to segment the data stream into burst and quiet segments. New methods allow users to set qualification and hangover times
