This comprehensive hardware device incorporates all the features of the current VQuad™ with Dual UTA HD unit such as portability and remote accessibility along with the necessary PC with Win7 OS. The Probe is designed for easier portability and convenient testing with all the capabilities of the current VQuad™ with Dual UTA HD solution.

Dual High Density Universal Telephony Adapter (Dual UTA HD)   

Dual UTA HD (High Density) is a comprehensive hardware device designed to interface and test the voice, video, and data quality of telecommunication networks. The Dual UTA HD features all the circuitry necessary to universally adapt to any telephony instrumentation, such as standard Plain Old Telephone Systems (POTS), digital hybrid interfaces, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) networks, wireless cellular phones and mobile radios including devices that utilize Bluetooth®, Broadband 3G/4G, LTE technologies.

OC12/STM4 Analysis & Emulation Card

The LightSpeed1000™ is our new dual OC3 / 12 STM1 /4 PCI-Express card for protocol analysis and emulation of ATM, POS, RAW, and Ethernet traffic. The card also sports 2 GigaBytes of DDR2 RAM, a GigE, and a USB 2.0 interface making this card one of the most versatile and powerful cards in GL’s repertoire.

PacketExpert™- Quad Port Ethernet / VLAN / MPLS / IP / UDP Tester

PacketExpert™ is a portable (USB based) Quad Port Ethernet / VLAN / MPLS / IP / UDP Tester with 4 Electrical Ethernet Ports (10/100/1000 Mbps) and 2 Optical Ports (1000 Mbps). The PacketExpert™ connects to a Notebook PC through a USB 2.0 interface. Each port provides independent Ethernet/VLAN/MPLS/IP/UDP testing at wire speed for applications such as BERT, RFC 2544, and Loopback. BERT is implemented for all layers (as depicted below). RFC 2544 is applicable for Layers 2, 2.5, and 3, and Loopback is applicable for Layers 2, 3, and 4.
