OULU, Finland -- NetHawk is introducing a new release of their analyser, the main new functionalities being intended to help the user in testing of a live GPRS/EDGE network by any major vendor.

One of the main new features is the correlated multi-interface call trace, which makes it easy for the user to follow all the ongoing circuit-switched calls and packet switched sessions in real time in Gb, Abis, and A interfaces. This, combined with the extended physical link capacity through the NetHawk portable C8 multiplexer, and powerful new filtering features make for the most advanced and versatile protocol testing tool on the market. NetHawk is not sacrificing ease of use for the added functionality; the new analyser’s Dynamic Abis support, along with other optimisations to the user interface, minimises the need for configuration and enables more efficient testing work.

The capabilities of the NetHawk Analyser have been further enhanced by including support for the SS7 and SigTran protocols, as well as for 2-Mbps HSL (high-speed signalling link) interfaces. In addition to this, the NetHawk Analyser can also handle Gb deciphering in real time in both Gb over Frame Relay and Gb over IP implementations. To respond to modern Europe’s railway operators’ needs, NetHawk is also introducing support for decoding GSM-R (GSM – Railway), which is the standard chosen by several railway operators for operational communications.

All these new features, combined with the unmatched portability of NetHawk tools, provide strong support to NetHawk’s customers in their efforts to develop their networks for new services and revenue sources, as well as for troubleshooting their live networks for increased quality and performance.
