GL Communications—Traffic + Protocol Classification For T1 E1 Lines (Comms—Tools)

[SatNews] GL Communication's Protocol Identifier and Traffic Classifier applications are ideal tools for network engineers for understanding, analyzing, and performing traffic engineering on T1 E1 networks.

GL’s Protocol Identifier application can identify and classify various protocols carried over T1 or E1 lines. It is capable of detecting protocols such as ISDN, ATM, HDLC, MTP2, LAPD, SS7, PPP, GSM, GSM Abis, TRAU, and Frame Relay. The timeslots and or sub-channels within timeslots are also identified. Once identified, detailed analysis can be carried out by individual Protocol Analyzers. This application is helpful in identifying traffic types at a concentration point, DSX patch panel, or multiplexed facility.
A companion product called Traffic Classifier is an application that can analyze different types of voiceband traffic such as voice, fax, data, tones (dial, ring etc) carried over T1 E1 lines. Traffic Classifier uses various identifying schemes depending on the country of selection and classifies the traffic, based on the dialing tones stipulated for that country.

Both Protocol Identifier and Traffic Classifier applications work on Windows® 32-bit and 64-bit Operating Systems. The applications can be accessed either directly or remotely.
