Agilent Technologies Inc. has released a handheld network-performance tester that allows network technicians to test gigabit Ethernet by running RFC 2544 performance benchmarking to verify throughput at full line rate.
The N2620A FrameScope Pro uses an auto-test feature that measures the performance of network resources such as DHCP and DNS as well as file, e-mail and Web servers, enabling troubleshooting of elusive performance bottlenecks.
It supports 802.3z-compliant 10/100/1000BASE-T copper and 1000BASE-SX/LX/ZX gigabit fiber SFP interfaces;
In addition, auto-test application performance testing allows for quick isolation of protocol, configuration and resource performance problems.
The FrameScope also contains a remote control feature that allows troubleshooting, monitoring and reporting to take place from a central office, eliminating costly dispatches.
The analyzer, which lists for $10,673, is expected to ship in January.
