Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - September 24, 2008 - GL Communications Inc. announced today the release of enhanced T1 E1 Analyzer Hardware and Software - Version 5.13. Addressing a press conference, Mr. Jagdish Vadalia, Senior Manager of Product Development, said, “The T1/E1 Analysis Suite of products provides comprehensive analysis and emulation capabilities for voiceband and signaling protocol emulation and analysis. The additions to the T1 E1 Analyzer product suite now include: New hardware called Universal T1 E1 Analyzer cards, software for WCS ISDN Emulation, and other enhancements to protocol emulators and analyzers”. He added, “The Universal T1 E1 Analyzer cards easily plug into PCI 2.1 Compliant slots of any PC. The advantage they offer over prior version of cards is integrated hardware support for both T1 as well as E1, thus allowing easy switching between T1 and E1 interface testing”.

Mr. Vadalia further added, “New software for ISDN Emulation in Client-Server mode allows easy automation and remoting for ISDN PRI applications. Another application is “Pulse Mask”, used for detection, monitoring, and plotting of received pulses. It includes Monitor Pulse Mask and Pulse Mask Display modules that can be remotely controlled using simple commands by client applications. Significant enhancements are also introduced to a range of protocol products that include: ATM, MC ML-PPP, and UMTS protocols.” He added, “With the introduction of the new applications and enhancements, the T1 E1 Analyzer Product suite adds significant value to T1 E1 testing needs of customers”.

A brief summary of the new features in the T1E1 Analyzer - 5.13 Release are provided below:
