GL announces Ethernet/IP Testing for LANs and WANs

Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - Mar 25, 2021 - GL Communications Inc., a global leader in telecom test and measurement solutions, addressed the press regarding their PC-based Ethernet/IP test tool, called PacketCheck™. A powerful and cost-effective, real-time test, and monitoring solution for LANs and WANs.


“PacketCheck™ is a PC-based Ethernet / IP test tool that is powerful and cost-effective. It can be an invaluable tool to test and verify LANs and WANs. The application supports Ethernet testing at all protocol layers - from raw Ethernet frames to stacked VLAN, stacked MPLS, and IP packets with UDP payloads. PacketCheck™ uses the PC’s network interface card (NIC) to transmit and receive Ethernet or IP packets over LANs and WANs”, said Vijay Kulkarni CEO of GL Communications.

He further added, “additional features include traffic simulation by the transmission of pre-recorded files, GTP traffic simulation, and traffic generation with IFG (Inter Frame Gap) of up to 5-millisecond accuracy. BER testing capability with PRBS patterns or user-defined test patterns”.

Important features of PacketCheck™

  • Generate/receive Ethernet or IP traffic of up to 800 Mbps bandwidth
  • Supports minimum line rate of 64 bps
  • Generates full-duplex Ethernet, IP, or UDP traffic to Tx and/or Rx traffic on any layer (Layer 1, Data Link with stacked VLAN/ MPLS, Network, Transport) with on-demand bandwidth
  • Supports stacked VLAN (up to 3 stacks) and customizable stacked MPLS (up to 3 stacks)
  • Measures throughput, round trip delay, one-way delay, total packets, packet loss, out of sequence frames, error frames, correct pattern frames
  • BER Testing - bit error rate, sync loss count, bit error count, PRBS pattern generation/verification of various patterns like QRSS, 26-1, 29-1, 211-1, 215-1, 220-1, and 223-1
  • Generate run-time impairments including the ability to insert or delete bytes, and byte-level impairments (AND, OR, XOR)
  • Supports Jumbo frames in addition to all normal frame sizes (64 bytes to 1518 bytes)
  • Displays stream-wise and aggregated statistics
  • Create test reports in XML or PDF formats
