The MLPPP Analyzer can be used to capture and decode a host of PPP protocols exchanged between pairs of nodes over T1/E1 links. It provides useful analysis of the PPP, MLPPP, and MC-MLPPP protocols which includes distribution of protocols, protocol fields, frame lengths and frame status.
A user can obtain detail analysis of the protocol and can perform various statistics measurements. MLPPP analyzer also supports Packet Data Analysis module (requires additional license) to perform detail analysis of MLPPP packets over IP and segregates them into SIP / H323 / Megaco / MGCP / T.38 Fax calls.
GL Communications supports the following types of MLPPP analyzers:
- Real-time MLPPP Analyzer with Packet Data Analysis (Pre-requisites: GL's field proven E1 or T1 internal cards or USB Laptop E1 or T1 external units, required licenses and Windows XP (or higher) Operating System)
- Offline/Remote MLPPP Analyzer (Pre-requisites: Hardware Dongle and Windows XP (or higher) Operating System)
The Packet Data Analysis is an outstanding tool for live monitoring of signaling and traffic over IP.Packet Data Analysis (PDA) is distributed with GL’s Packet Analyzers, allowing users to monitor live IP networks including capture, analysis, and reporting of every call in detail. Supported protocols include SIP, MEGACO, MGCP, H.323, SCCP, RANAP (UMTS IuCS), and GSM A. It can capture IP packets over different transmission lines, including IP, T1, E1, T3, E3, and OC-3 STM-1 / OC-12 STM-4. PDA then processes the captured packets, identifies, and segregates calls based on signaling and traffic parameters. Refer to Packet Data Analysis in MLPPP webpage for more details.
In addition, GL’s T1E1 Analyzer includes client-server based MC-MLPPP Emulator that can further help in analysis & emulation of MC-MLPPP, MLPPP, & PPP.
