Agilent Technologies Inc. today released a new QoS Analyzer and Session Trace applications for monitoring and troubleshooting new and “complex” SIGTRAN networks.

SIGTRAN is the name given to an Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) working group that produces specifications for a family of protocols that provide reliable datagram service and user layer adaptations for SS7 and ISDN communications protocols.

Agilent says the new offerings will simplify the process of managing converged networks (SS7 over IP or circuit-switched.

Network quality is ensured through rapid identification and analysis of potential issues, and in-depth troubleshooting for early problem resolution.

Deploying SIGTRAN is a key step in managing surging SS7 traffic and enabling new services such as voice over IP, which deliver higher network efficiencies and significant operating expenditure reductions.

“As telecommunications service providers deploy these SIGTRAN networks, they look for familiar ways to manage the converged networks,” the company said. “As this takes place, the network is extremely susceptible to configuration, traffic load and interworking issues.”
