LanExpert network analysers are used in inline network analysis as well as installing, monitoring, maintaining, upgrading or troubleshooting any network.
The LanExpert network analysers feature a colour touch screen interface that provides access to a comprehensive suite of test and analysis functions.
The inline mode in these portable test tools allows users to non-intrusively monitor network traffic to identify protocols, port usage, VoIP statistics and network utilisation.
Key features of LanExpert network analysers
- Captures and stores up to 10,000 packets with user-defined filters for detailed analysis in the field, or downloaded over the network or to a USB flash drive
- Tests including Ping, Link, Trace Route, DHCP and Discovery are used to quickly identify network problems using the RJ-45 port
- Generates up to 100% traffic loading with control of packet rate and size to demonstrate network performance at various traffic levels
- Tests cables for shorts, opens, split pairs and reversed pairs, measures cable length and generates tones for cable tracing
- Inline network analysis
Stress tests that generate traffic and measure performance metrics in accordance with RFC 2544 are provided with the Psiber LE80 LAN analysers.
The stress test can be conducted using the two independent ports on a single unit or with a second unit located remotely on a network.
PoE tests include voltage and inline current measurement to determine the actual power used by a powered device.
