The focus in the Benelux is on Voice Quality Solutions.
Communications is dramatically changing right now, as “mobility” and “IP” technologies such as LTE, Advanced LTE, WiMax, 3G, and Broadband Internet, lead this transformation. As these technologies are rolled out, basic voice/data quality will ultimately determine the fate of carriers and end equipment manufacturers. Simple and effective methods of testing voice and data are sorely needed - GL’s mobile test solution provides this capability with the flexibility of connecting to and between any network, any service, and any interface.
GL Communications was formed by Vijay Kulkarni and T. Bruce Yost on October 22, 1986. Vijay and Bruce met in 1985 while working as Engineers at FiberTrak in Reston, VA. FiberTrak was a company formed by two railroads ( Norfolk Southern & Southern Pacific) to design and build a communications network along their railroad right-of-ways across the United States. The project was "dropped", but a friendship and long-term partnership that has lasted twenty years was formed. Out of this friendship, GL Communications Inc. was born.
