Online PR News – 19-October-2013 – Gaithersburg, Maryland – Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA â October 18, 2013- GL Communications Inc announced today its MAPSâ˘ Skinny Protocol Emulator and PacketScanâ˘ - Skinny Protocol Analysis applications.
Speaking to reporters, Mr. Karthik Ramalingam, Senior Manager for Product Development of the Company said, âSkinny Call Control Protocol (SCCP), also referred to as "Skinny," is a Cisco Systems proprietary signaling and control protocol used to communicate between IP devices and Cisco Unified Communications Manager for call establishment, teardown, and control in VoIP environments. It is widely deployed in VoIP enterprise solutions and is increasingly supported by third-party service provider. It is a simple, lightweight, very feature-rich stimulus protocol deployed in conjunction with Cisco IP phones.â
He added, âGLâs MAPSâ˘ (Message Automation and Protocol Simulation) is an advanced and versatile protocol simulator/tester that can simulate a variety of protocols encountered in the telecom space, including ISDN, CAS, SS7, VoIP, Wireless (2G,3G & 4G) and others. It is now enhanced to support âSkinnyâ - SCCP, Cisco Systems proprietary signaling and control protocol.
GLâs MAPSâ˘ Skinny Emulator can be used to emulate IP Phones (Skinny Clients) in VoIP environment.â
Mr. Ramalingam further added, âThe supported call control functionalities include: registration and management, call control (setup, teardown, and statistics), media (audio) stream control. In addition to call simulation in VoIP environment, the emulator also supports error tracking, regression testing, conformance testing, load testing, and message generation. It can run pre-defined test scenarios against test objects in a controlled & deterministic manner.
MAPSâ˘ Skinny Emulator supports powerful utilities like Message Editor, Script Editor, and Profile Editor, which allow new scenarios to be created or existing scenarios to be modified.â
