    • all alarms and errors occurring during the call including BPV, Frame Errors, CRC errors, LOS, and more
    • detailed voice band event information occurring during the call including dual tones (DTMF, MF, MFC-R2), fax tones, modem signals, and more
    • detailed analysis of the voice band call including noise level, speech level, speech activity factor, echo measurements, and more
    • categorization of the call as voice, fax, modem, or data

  • Voice band Analyzer (VBA optional application licensed with dongle)

    This is an an analysis tool for monitoring voice band network traffic. The VBA can host different analysis modules for monitoring speech and noise levels, and line echo. This application can now be invoked from T1/E1 Analyzer Special Applications menu or from command line.

      • Updated ACM files for AMR codec to support Codec Mod Request (CMR)
      • Impairment of TRAU frames in pass through, terminate, and loopback modes, Phase Alignment is supported in AMR and AMR-WB codec
      • Converting uplink frames to downlink frames in loopback

  • Windows Client Server

    The enhancements introduced to the Windows Client Server (WCS) application are as follows:

    • Error Insertion

      • Logic errors can now be inserted at a user-determined fixed or random rate;
