Dual Media Inline Gigabit Network Analyzer

The LanExpert 85 network analyzer provides expert assistance for all tiers of LAN installers, technicians and managers working with either copper or fiber media. The LanExpert 85 uses SFPs to change between copper, Single mode and/or multimode fiber SFPs.
The LanExpert is a single solution for network professionals to quickly maintain and optimize networks from the fiber or cable to the packet.

Why LanExpert Series?

An extensive suite of test capabilities include: Link Detection, Ping and Trace Route to verify network connectivity; Single Ended or Inline Packet Monitoring, Filtering and Capture to identify and solve complex problems; User defined Traffic Generation and structured RFC 2544 Stress Test to predict network performance under varying load conditions; Loopback, VoIP and Email tests to ensure proper performance of key network services.

The Inline Mode allows users to non-intrusively monitor network traffic to identify protocols, port usage, VoIP statistics and network utilization. The LanExpert can capture and store 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. Using either RJ-45 or SFP port (LE85), tests including Ping, Link, Trace Route, DHCP and Discovery are used to quickly identify network problems. The LanExpert can generate up to 100% traffic loading with control of packet rate and size to demonstrate network performance at various traffic levels.

Additionally, a stress test that generates traffic and measures performance metrics, in accordance with RFC 2544, is also provided. The stress test can be conducted using the two independent ports on a single unit or used with a second unit located remotely on a network.

The LanExpert is a comprehensive network analyzer that allows users to deliver robust and reliable network services with a single test device. LAN installers, technicians, managers and service providers can now get expert network help at an affordable price.
