Components of GL's WebViewer™ Solution
GL's WebViewer™ solution is a four tier architecture. The first layer consists of GL's vMobile™/VQuad™ which establishes the proper calls or direct connections between the near and far end using a variety of physical interfaces. The File Monitor transfers the degraded (recorded) voice files from the individual vMobile™/VQuad™ nodes to one of several VQT/VBA/EMU systems which are located on the second layer. Each VQT/VBA/EMU applications automatically analyze the degraded voice file and transmit the analytical results to a single central database located at the Data Layer. This third layer provides a means for storing the captured results. The last layer is the Data Access Layer (Application Server) where the data presentation logic is contained. Each of these components is briefly explained below.
An Oracle or MySQL database (user specified) is used to store the analytical measurement results along with all pertinent data associated with the vMobile™/VQuad™/VQT/VBA/EMU/Data/Video Test systems (Call progress events, error events, timestamps, Call ID, location information, Echo Measurements, Data Test Results, Video Test Results, Fax Events, VQT PESQ and POLQA Events). This provides a very flexible and expandable architecture for data storage and data access. The database is accessed in real-time over the web using the WebViewer™.The DataImport application is co-hosted with the database server running on the Data Layer. It collects the data posted by the probes and then updates the database using the collected data.
The WebViewer™ provides an application server for accessing the vMobile™/VQuad™ Call progress events, user-defined error events, delay measurement results, Data Test results, Video Test results, Echo Measurement results, Fax Events and VQT PESQ/ VQT POLQA/VBA E-Model LQ/LQO/WB MOS measurements along with the additional analytical measurements including Call ID information. The results are queried over the internet using any browser-capable device such as desktops, table PCs MAC systems (Mac, iPhone, iPad) or PDAs. The application server is capable of serving the data in real-time or providing historic data based on customer selected filters.

Users can utilize the Search Criteria to filter the search based on various criteria, including Called Number, Ratings, Measurement Range, GPS position, and User-Specified Events. Users can configure PC-based and Mobile device NetTest parameters to create search criteria. Users have the flexibility to combine filter Criteria parameters using logical operators AND or OR to create a filter with multiple conditions.
Send Results to Excel, PDF, CSV Files
The output results option can be used to export any selected test results to a PDF, Excel, or CSV files. The reports can even be customized using the Custom Report feature.
Using WebViewer™, user can customize report generation with result statistics, tabular data, bar graphs, and line graphs. Reports can be customized based on a combination of different parameters in Results View, Call Events, and Statistics. WebViewer™ can generate and export the customized report in either PDF or Excel or CSV formats, while also allow users to view results dynamically on WebViewer™.
WebViewer™ can generate the custom reports with a variety of filtered configurations. All configurations are created and modified directly within WebViewer™ - create a new report or modify existing reports for displaying the user-specified results. Included with Custom Reports is the ability to specify custom Line Graphs.
Additionally, Report Scheduler gives the user the ability to specify when to schedule a report along with the schedule period and user-specified filters. For instance, every Monday schedule a report which includes last 7 days, or schedule a report every morning or once a month. The Scheduler uses the Custom Reports as specified above and outputs as PDF or Excel or other format. As part of the Report Scheduler, all reports generated can be shared automatically via Email or SMS. So, if desired, every morning user can have an email or SMS with the past day testing performance.
Google Maps plotting option is provided to display the GPS co-ordinates of various Results, vMobile™, VQuad™ Nodes, and Mobile Devices. Results include VQT PESQ, VQT POLQA, NetTests, Call Connect Events, EMU, FAX, and VBA tests. These are differentiated using color codes and text call-outs. Plotting can be done in real-time while drive testing and also while testing at a location.
Google Maps plotting can be customized based on the specific map configuration. The customized map plotting can be further refined by choosing the test parameter such as VQuad™ location, VQuad™ Phone ID, Call Events, Threshold Settings; and other result types.
Within the map, any node result details such as Result type, Device PhoneID, Device Name, GPS Position, and Location of the test result can be obtained. Users can also get the individual device or application status or result statistics.
The Google maps Plotting Configurations can be created for the 4 map types (Threshold Settings, VQuad™ Location, VQuad™ Phone ID, and Call Events), and the results available for the results types, and the Phone IDs.
