Anritsu Begins Selling NetClaw
Network and Service Performance Analyzer
Anritsu Corporation President Hiromichi Toda announces that the company has begun sales of the NetClawTM Network and Service Performance Analyzer, which is ideal for analyzing the quality of service (QoS) of mobile and fixed networks. NetClaw is a product that was developed by NetTest A/S (currently Anritsu A/S) of Denmark, which was purchased by Anritsu in August 2005.
Using NetClaw, communications enterprises and network device manufacturers can ensure QoS, analyze problems, and optimize service in various mobile networks, from GSM to GPRS/EDGE to UMTS, as well as fixed networks ranging from VoIP to SS7 (Signaling System No.7) to ISDN. By providing the ability to remotely and locally test protocol service, monitor networks, and collect and analyze data on existing and next-generation networks, NetClaw provides a highly expandable solution that allows users to adapt to a broad range of communication formats.
NetClaw is a network/service performance analyzer that is ideally suited to analyzing the QoS of mobile and fixed networks. It enables accurate and efficient testing of protocol service, network monitoring, and data collection and analysis in the construction of next-generation networks as well as in existing networks.
The depth of analysis is what separates NetClaw from other instruments in its class. Problems can be solved quickly by rapid fault analysis due to NetClaw's ability to decode captured data in a wide range of mobile access and core networks protocols across GSM, GPRS/EDGE, and UMTS. Decoded data can be exported to ASCII or Excel formats. NetClaw also has a sequence recognizer that makes it easy to collate captured protocol data. The entire sequence from the start to end of a call can be easily verified, reducing the amount of time and work required to pinpoint faults and potential problem sources. NetClaw also supports voice quality analysis by measurement of Mean Opinion Score (MOS [P-MOS]), Round Trip Time (RTT), jitter (RFC 1889, RFC3550), packet delay and packet loss (RFC 1889, RFC3550) based on ITU-T P.561.
