Capturing and analyzing high volume calls is increasingly important to Wireless Carriers, Internet Service Providers, and Equipment vendors to ensure that quality of experience does not degrade with call intensity, volume, or protocol. Load and stress testing are important to verify stability of IP network and network elements pre- and post-deployment. This requires an advanced network monitoring appliance which can capture and analyze high volume calls with traffic.
GL’s PacketScan™ HD is a high density multi-protocol 2U rack mounted Network Monitoring Appliance w/ 4x1GigE (PKV120) and w/2x10GigE (PKV122) (Includes PKV100 online for temporary audio codec support) network interface cards that can capture and process high volumes of communication protocols over IP and Wireless networks.
PacketScan™ HD supports simultaneous capture and processing of up to 5000 Calls with duplex traffic at 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps. Almost all VoIP and Wireless protocols over IP transport layer, as listed below, can be captured and decoded for troubleshooting network problems.
PacketScan™ provides in-depth real-time and post-process data investigation with its Packet Data Analysis (PDA) feature. The PDA view assists in any comparisons that are to be made between the two RTP sessions. Packet Data Analysis (PDA) view displays call information in graphical format (Traffic Analyzer Call Quality Matrix- Summary View) as well as in tabular format (RTP Diagnostic - Detail View).
For more details visit Packet Data Analysis.
*Currently PDA feature is available only for SIP, H323, MEGACO, MGCP, GSMA, Skinny, and IuCS based calls. The PDA support for other protocols will be coming soon.PacketScan™ HD can work with NetSurveyorWeb™, a central monitoring system for a comprehensive view of network performance. It features rich graphics, ladder diagrams and CDRs (Call Detail Records). A web server is deployed in a central location along with an Oracle® database. A number of GL’s PacketScan™ HD probes and/or, PacketProbes™ are deployed in remote locations across the network to passively monitor VoIP traffic.
For more capacity, PacketScan™ FB
(Near-Realtime File Based Packet Processing Tool) will be offered in near future.
PacketScan™ software can be easily integrated with any type of PC platforms, including regular laptops, portable handhelds, 1U rackmounts, and also as an embedded probe in CPE.
Following variants of PacketScan™ are available:
- High-Density Packet Monitoring Tool (PacketScan™ HD)
