Tektronix K18HW-2STM1 Features:
- 4x STM-1/OC-3 receiver ports with LC connector
- HW based AAL-2 and AAL-5 reassembling
- HW based filters (VPI/VCI, UTRAN protocol-specific such as User Plane)
The K18 hardware probe, combined with a PC platform, enables customers to minimize acquisition costs and obtain the high-speed performance they need. The K18 probe performs real-time capture under heavy load from UTRAN STM-1/OC-3/GbE interfaces, hardware filtering (such as control plane/user plane, VPI/VCI), and first-level hardware processing (such as RLC/MAC reassembling, UTRANlogical channels auto-configuration).
The Network and Service Analyzer (NSA) software suite combines with high-performing K18 probes to provide a highly-scalable solution for network optimization and troubleshooting. Whether you are analyzing just a few links on a stand-alone probe or performing network-wide analysis in multi-probe environments, K18 and NSA scales to meet your needs.
