Call and Signaling Analysis

T1/E1 Call Capture & Analysis

This powerful utility provides the capability to record calls directly from T1/E1 lines for post analysis. The system uses two Ultra T1/E1 Cards, or GL's Dual Laptop T1/E1 Analyzer to interface non-intrusively with T1 or E1 lines. Calls can be automatically or manually captured from both directions of transmission. Subsequently, the captured call or calls can be played back and analyzed in time, spectral, and 3D graphic modes using a commercial sound card, built-in high fidelity speakers, and custom analysis software.
