Vijay Kulkarni, CEO of GL Communications, states, “GL’s PacketScan™ software is a comprehensive tool for capturing, categorizing, monitoring and collecting statistics on various IP calls. This software excels at decoding VoIP and wireless protocols, providing detailed Quality of Service statistics for voice calls. PacketScan™ offers detailed insights into Wireless protocols such as 5G, LTE, and IMS, allowing users to monitor live conditions or analyze historical data to understand network performance and operation. PacketScan™ can intelligently build call detail records, save and playback voice calls, and visualize the data.”

For high data rate traffic capture, GL Communications offers PacketScan™ HD, a high-performance network monitoring appliance capable of lossless packet capture over Ethernet/IP networks at speeds up to 100 Gbps. This solution combines dedicated hardware with specialized Network Interface Cards and PacketScan™ software to ensure efficient packet captures.

PacketScan™ includes a Packet Data Analysis tool, allowing users to monitor live IP or TDM networks, capturing, analyzing, and reporting every phone call in detail. It also provides graphical presentations of analysis, including ladder diagrams of call flows. Captured data can be seamlessly transferred to GL’s centralized database and dashboard, NetSurveyorWeb™, which offers remote access and analysis capabilities.

GL’s 5G Protocol Analyzer offers comprehensive monitoring capabilities for 5G networks by capturing, decoding, and collecting statistics over the N1N2, N4, N8, N10, N11, N12, and N13 interfaces, providing valuable insights into core network performance and behavior. Featuring a user-friendly GUI, it allows users to easily navigate, and view captured end-to-end signaling traffic. The analyzer also supports a wide range of codecs, including AMR WB, EVS, and OPUS, and generates detailed call reports.

Additionally, GL’s LTE Protocol Analysis captures and monitors real-time signaling and traffic on LTE networks, segregating, monitoring, and collecting statistics on all calls. It can test eNodeB or UE over various interfaces, including S1, S3, S4, S5 (or S8), S6a, S10, S11, S13, and X2.
