SUNRISE ADDS VOIP TESTING TO GHEPARDO PROTOCOL ANALYZER.

Sunrise Telecom Incorporated (Nasdaq: SRTI), San Jose, Calif., a provider of service verification equipment for telecommunications and Internet networks, has announced the addition of VoIP testing capabilities to its Ghepardo Network Protocol Analyzer Servers. The Ghepardo family of products, from Sunrise Telecom's Pro.Tel Division S.r.L., now provides monitoring, simulation, diagnostic, and analysis features for VoIP equipment, services, and networks.

The integration of VoIP functions is a significant expansion of Ghepardo's industry-leading platform, making it the ideal testing solution for the new convergent networks. While most of the VoIP Analyzers available in the marketplace are focused on the LAN side only, Ghepardo simultaneously manages the LAN interfaces and the traditional PSTN interfaces like E1, T1 and V.xx in an integrated, multi-user and multi-test environment. This is made possible by the full support of legacy signaling protocols such as SS#7, ISDN, GSM, and GPRS, together with the emerging VoIP protocols.

VoIP support includes the most common protocol stacks used in the industry, such as ITU-T H.323 suite, IETF SIP, MGCP (Media Gateway Control Protocol), H.248/MEGACO (MEdia GAteway COntrol), and Sigtran (SS#7 over IP). Ghepardo offers monitoring capabilities (such as protocol decoding); statistics; filters; and Quality of Service measurement, particularly useful for operators offering VoIP services to their customer base. Moreover, Ghepardo's call generation functions allow manufacturers to simulate network and node performance under specific situations, including heavy load conditions.

Ghepardo users can monitor networks and troubleshoot directly from any Web browser. The Ghepardo Protocol Analyzer/Server is Web and server-based, allowing up to 32 users to monitor, share results of four concurrent tests, and conduct surveillance simultaneously from each Ghepardo -- with each user seeing a different view.

The Ghepardo hardware capability has also been enhanced with an optional Ethernet card interface. The LAN card supports not only 10 and 100 Mbps Ethernet, but Gigabit Ethernet as well. It has 1 MB RAM and two powerful RISC processors on board to boost the data capture and filters functions without affecting the overall performance of the system. VoIP functions are included in the 2.0 software release, scheduled for distribution during 1st Quarter 2001.
