Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - October 26th, 2005 - GL Communications Inc, a leading provider of test and measurement solutions for TDM, VoIP, and Wireless networks, today announced the release of a new protocol analyzer for 3G (Third Generation) CDMA 2000 mobile networks. This protocol analyzer works in conjunction with GL's Ultra T1 and E1 PCI bus cards, portable T1 and E1 analyzers, and Ethernet access interface protocols.

The transition to 3G networks delivers improved system capacity and system efficiency in comparison to 2G systems. To deliver both voice as well as broadband data, CDMA networks have incorporated many structural enhancements to 2G CDMA networks (also called, CDMA One, and ITU-IS 95). The latest 3G technology, called CDMA 2000 1xEV-DO is capable of delivering integrated voice and simultaneous multimedia services at peak data rates of 3.09 Mbps to the end subscriber.

GL's CDMA 2000 Protocol Analyzer can be used to analyze and view protocols across A1 (between Base Station Controller and Mobile Switching Center), A3 and A7 (between two Base Station Controllers), A9 (between Base Station Controller and Packet Control Function), and A11 (between Packet Control Function and Packet Data Serving Node) signaling interfaces. Some of the major interfaces in CDMA 2000 network and the interfaces supported by GL's CDMA 2000 Protocol Analyzer are depicted in the figure below:
