August 13, 2014 - Simultaneously supporting up to 8 telephony devices, VQuad™ - Dual UTA hardware/software solution is used for automated call control as well as to automatically send and record voice files from most any type of network. It is available for voice quality testing and covers multiple attributes via automated testing. Typical networks supported include Wireless (VoLTE, LTE, 4G, 3G) via Bluetooth® or wired headset; Broadband Internet (LTE, 4G, 3G); VoIP SIP; PSTN; and TDM.

GL's Voice and Data Testing Solutions Goes Mobile

USA



Press release date: August 11, 2014

Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA – GL Communications Inc., announced today the release of its enhanced Voice Quality Testing software with Wideband Bluetooth support using the next gen Dual UTA.

Speaking to the press, Mr. Robert Bichefsky Senior Manager for Product Development of the company said, “Latest technologies such as VoLTE and Advanced LTE are expanding rapidly with deployment throughout all markets and all carriers. The VoLTE supports HD voice over AMR-WB networks and requires sophisticated testing for both voice and data quality. Testing must include older generation narrowband networks along with wideband networks when VoLTE to VoLTE calls are established and maintained. Along with voice and data testing, the next generation networks also require delay and call retention testing. GL’s mobile test solution provides this capability with the flexibility of connecting to and between any network, any service, and any interface.

Typical networks that are supported by GL's VQuad™ - Dual UTA hardware/software include Wireless (VoLTE, LTE, 4G, 3G) via Bluetooth or wired headset, Broadband Internet (LTE, 4G, 3G), VoIP SIP, PSTN, and TDM. Automated testing using GL’s VQuad™ includes the following attributes: Scripting with variable parameters, portability for mobile drive testing, remote accessibility from CLI or WebViewer™, centralized data retrieval along with mapping to Google Maps and analysis of Voice and Data. “

He added, “ The VQuad™  software is used for automated call control as well as to automatically send and record voice files from most any type of network (Wireless, VoIP, TDM, & Analog). It supports up to 8 telephony devices simultaneously. A minimum of two telephony nodes are required for transferring files, either within same VQuad™ Node or between multiple geographically separated VQuad™ Nodes.

TheVQuad™ along with the next generation Dual UTA, support for Wideband Bluetooth (as well as Narrowband Bluetooth) allows testing mobile devices supporting VoLTE networks (AMR Wideband).

For redundancy and load sharing, VQuad™ supports connections to as many as four Central Systems. Full access to modifying these connections is available directly from the WebViewerTM, Network Status.

In addition to the VQuad™  multi-connection support, the File Monitor utility, which automatically transfers degraded voice files to the VQT system, also supports as many as four connections to the VQT system. Status and the ability to modify the connections is available directly from the WebViewerTM, Network Status.

Enhanced VQuad™  now supports user defined GPS information. Without actually connecting to the GPS receiver, the user can configure GPS coordinates within the VQuad™   configuration, thus all results/events associated with the VQuad™ will include GPS coordinates.”

Mr. Bichefsky further added, “GL's WebViewerTM is used to query and filter all results/events/errors from connected VQuad™ Probes. Current status of the entire deployment is displayed along with customized user statistics and results of the active tests.

WebViewerTM now supports Network Status of all facets of VQuad™ deployment including VQuad™, File Monitor and VQT Applications, as well as all Mobile devices associated with VQuad™  NetTest (data testing). The network status also supports full remote operations. The following screenshot depicts network status information.

WebViewerTM filtering process has been enhanced with parameters associated with NetTest along with Mobile information and GPS location. In other words, using the WebViewerTM one can filter the results based on a location or user-specified coordinates. Added to the WebViewerTM, the ability to Remote control any connected VQuad™ regardless if the VQuad™ is connected via public or private IP networks.”

He added, “GL’s Mobile Device Controller (MDC) provides a liaison to all supported Apple/Android based mobile devices for conducting data NetTests. The Data Tests can be remotely configured and automated from within any VQuad™ node irrespective of the mobile device proximity to the VQuad™ node.

Specifically for smart phones, the VQuad™ can fully automate the data tests to any GL app equipped phone irrespective of whether the device is on a voice call or not. The testing is fully automated with results sent to the central database (WebViewer™).“
