Network Connections

The Ethernet physical layer has multiple physical layer options. The Investigator platform supports Small Form Factor Pluggable modules (SFP’s) to allow the user to easily switch between various optical and copper physical layers. Passive optical taps are also available where the circumstances dictate that the insertion of the test tool cannot disrupt the network traffic.

Platforms and Configurations

Investigator Ethernet Analyzers are available in several platforms ranging from highly portable notebooks to high port count rack mounts.

The hardware captures every bit on the line to insure complete verification and accurate reporting. 

The software included with Investigator provides a full range of characterization data, as well as advanced debug capabilities such as triggering and filtering. Investigator™ for Ethernet encompasses a full lineup of test components to thoroughly test your Ethernet link.

Complete Ethernet Protocol Analysis

Investigator Protocol Analyzers capture and display 100% of link data, even at  full line rates. Views of  primitives, as well as frame delimiters, frame header, and payload data are also provided. 

The Protocol Database Editor allows the user to define additional decoding of protocols to further enhance the existing functions. Deep, bit‐level triggering and pre‐ and post‐filtering capabilities ensure that relevant data can be extracted from  multi‐gigabit data streams.

The Investigator™ Ethernet Protocol Analyzer testing solution provides an innovative approach to Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet validation that encompasses the physical layer all the through the upper layer protocol debug.
