Inline Capture and Protocol Analyzer

The Aukua Inline Capture and Protocol Analyzer provides visibility, validation, monitoring and debug analysis capabilities for R&D, Test and Network Support engineers building and deploying Ethernet based IT, storage networking and communications systems.

  • Inline packet capture, L1 (PCS layer) bit capture, protocol analysis, and latency monitoring analyzer
  • Supports 10MbE to 25GbE rates including the first to support IEEE 802.3bz 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T Ethernet
  • First and only inline analyzer to support native copper 10GBASE-T! No need for troublesome media converters!
  • Now supporting Automotive Ethernet visibility, packet capture and impairments!
  • Low latency inline (pass-through) operation
