Teledyne LeCroy Ethertest-CP Ethernet Protocol Analyser

ComProbe is a non-intrusive, aggregating and portable Ethernet tap.

Ethernet professionals know the potential headaches involved in troubleshooting network issues. Even just capturing packets, good and bad, across network devices can be a chore. The analysis devices themselves become part of the network and add complexity to the network analysis process. The Teledyne LeCroy Ethernet ComProbe Ethernet tap solves these headaches because it is completely invisible to the network, fully bi-directional, and all in a box the size of your palm!

The Ethernet ComProbe captures and aggregates bi-directional Ethernet data and sends it to the analysis PC via a single USB port. The Ethernet ComProbe is non-intrusive and completely invisible to the network. The Ethernet ComProbe and the analysis PC do not show up as a node on the network, but they see everything flowing in both directions across the wire.

The Ethernet ComProbe tap captures both good and bad (or broken) Ethernet frames. Regular network interface cards (NIC) discard bad frames. Without Frontline’s Ethernet ComProbe you would not be able to see these broken frames. Frontline’s Ethernet ComProbe tap uses USB power during data capture and there is no need for an external power supply. The tap guarantees network connection even without USB port power. It delivers comprehensive, bi-directional, aggregated Ethernet data for ALL packets passing through the network.
