Agilent Technologies Inc. today introduced the J7844A VoIP call trace signaling analyzer, which the company says can identify complex signaling problems end-to-end across multiple voice technologies such as VoIP over broadband, legacy SS7, 2G, 2.5G or 3G mobile networks.
According to Agilent, problem identification time is reduced to a few seconds, enabling laboratory and field service engineers to minimize VoIP service downtime and bring services into operation faster.
VoIP has grown significantly and is now used for nearly every type of telephony service, including enterprise communications, local, long-distance, international and wholesale.
Additional growth of VoIP is now being driven by new broadband triple-play services, wireless services deployed on IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) networks, and push-to-talk over cellular.
“Testing a call that traverses multiple network architectures can be extremely time-consuming due to complex setup and configuration requirements,” Agilent said.
“The J7844A can automatically detect, capture and trace call signaling across multiple points in a network and across multiple telephony technologies in only a few seconds.”
