Fluke Networks MetroScope Mainframe  

Perfect for service providers, this Ethernet tester provides SLA testing and detailed IP analysis.


30 DAY DoubleDiamond™ Warranty (Standard)

Product Highlights

  • Ideal for use by service providers.
  • Provides RFC 2544 SLA testing.
  • Measures jitter and server response time.
  • Enables complete IP analysis.
  • Supports throughput, latency, frame loss, and back-to-back testing modes for RFC 2544 automated test suite.
  • Monitors traffic and discovers and analyzes active networks.

  • Further Details

  • Full VGA color display offers resolution and detail that other handheld testers can't match.
  • Simply touch the screen to run advanced tests such as VLAN discovery and monitoring.
  • Enables SNMP management.
  • Customizes scripting for optimum testing.
  • Control the tester with a Web browser.

  • When a network connection fails, users expect fast and complete troubleshooting service from their service provider.

    As a service provider, you need tools to provide fast, reliable troubleshooting service for your customers. For 10/100/1000BASE-T and 1000BASE-FX Ethernet connections, the Fluke MetroScope Mainframe pinpoints problems to get your network up and running again—fast.

    Via a simple user interface, the MetroScope provides complex testing. Just connect the tester to your copper or fiber network via its 10/100/1000BASE-T RJ-45 or 1000BASE-FX SFP's dual SC connectors. Or use a Web browser to test a remote network.

    The MetroScope supports throughput, latency, frame loss, and back-to-back testing modes. This enables it to perform RFC 2544 testing. The tester generates customized reports. These reports include data about server response time, physical layer and BERT testing (the tester measures optical output power, optical input power, temperature, laser bias current, and transceiver supply voltage). The tester also provides VLAN monitoring.

    In addition to RFC 2544 testing, you can even test jitter with accuracy in microseconds. This feature gives you SLAs for VoIP and IPTV.

    Because it complies with SLA standards for response time, the tester handles advanced services (think DNS or e-mail). IP analysis monitors traffic to provide troubleshooting for customer or network connections.

    Since the tester supports SNMP, you can query switches and routers, find overloaded ports, and pinpoint offending devices.
