GL releases scripted and GUI ISDN emulator

Solution features selection of various ISDN standards, variants and NFAS


Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - March 17, 2009 - GL Communications, announced today the release of Scripted and GUI ISDN Emulator. Speaking to the press, Mr. Rob Bichefsky, Project Manager at GL said, “GL's ISDN Emulator for T1 E1 networks has been available as a manual GUI based ISDN Emulator and now is available as a Scripted (client-server) based application. ISDN emulation features include selection of various ISDN standards, variants & NFAS, including the flexibility to modify ISDN call parameters & message content. This flexibility ensures that the ISDN emulator will communicate with a wide variety of systems under test. It's even possible to emulate a complete ISDN connection (switch to subscriber) all in the same PC with a dual interface T1 E1 card”. He added, “The scripted (client-server) based ISDN Emulator emulates ISDN calls over T1 E1 links in a similar manner as the GUI, with the added capability to script entire ISDN sessions. The script can be run and rerun for automated environments.

Additionally, the ISDN Emulator application offers the following advantages:

• Simultaneous testing of high capacity T1 E1 systems through a single client
• Remotely control ISDN emulation using simple commands by client applications
• Collection of call records from remote locations

Mr. Bichefsky further added, “The GUI ISDN Emulator provides a user-friendly graphical interface, which allows the user to get up and running quickly. From 1 to 4 T1 or E1 trunks can be supported with a mixture of subscriber or switch emulation on different trunks. The Emulator provides ease of configuring various parameters like call management and nearly all protocol variants are supported and easily selected. Link status (Lap D) is also indicated”.
