OULU, Finland -- NetHawk, a pioneer in 3G testing since their release of the world’s first 3G protocol analyser in 2001, is now launching a new release of their market-leading product.

With all its new features, like real-time multi-interface Call Trace, detailed decoding capability, dynamic Iub and multiple-call Iub f8 deciphering, the NetHawk 3G Analyser significantly enhances monitoring and troubleshooting in operational 3G networks. The requirements of the latest evolution of 3G networks are also taken into account by supporting 3GPP Release5, including HSDPA, TD-SCDMA and Multiplexing for ATM (IMA) technologies.

The new NetHawk 3G Analyser was particularly designed to improve the effectiveness of troubleshooting in live 3G networks and their essential services. To verify correct operation of these services, NetHawk is introducing new features such as H.324M protocol monitoring for CS video calls, auto-configuration of monitored interfaces including Iub parameters, and real-time, correlated multi-interface call tracing as well as real-time deciphering of encrypted data in a live network. Usual problems like failed calls or different types of handovers can easily be detected and analysed. Moreover, the NetHawk 3G Analyser can be used to log the most important parameters which tell of air interface quality like, for example, uplink block error rate (BLER) and bit error rate (BER).

All these features combined with real-time measuring and verification of the most important QoS parameters in packet-switched data flow – delay, jitter and throughput - make for an easy and effective troubleshooting tool for network operators to use in their efforts to provide their subscribers with high quality, functional 3G services.
