Laptop T3 E3 T1 E1 Ethernet Analyzer
GL's USB based T3 E3 Analyzer is one of the smallest and lightest pods (weighing only 1.75 lbs) capable of processing signalling, voice, and data on T3 and E3 lines. The pod when connected to Notebook or Desktop PC is capable of capturing two full T3 (DS3) or E3 data streams, dropping and inserting T1 (DS1) or E1, and analysis of HDLC, ATM, Frame Relay, and PPP Protocols. It includes various signal testing capabilities for Unchannelized (Unstructured) and Channelized (Structured) T3 E3 Traffic, such as -
- Analysis/Emulation of T3 (44.736 Mbps) and E3 (34.368 Mbps)
- Analysis/Emulation of Unchannelized (Unstructured) T3 or E3 for ATM, PPP, HDLC, and Frame Relay
- Record / Playback of entire T3 or E3
- Monitoring & generating alarms, and error insertion
- Analysis of all 56 T1s (1.544 Mbps each), or 32 E1s (2.048 Mbps each)
- Analysis of Fractional T1s and E1s, N x T1s or N x E1s,
- Analysis of any combination of DS0s (64 kbps each) within the T1s or E1s, 56 x 24 = 1,344 DS0s for T1 or 32 x 32 = 1024 DS0s
The channelized option in the T3 E3 Analyzer uses “software-only” approach to support direct access to all 2x28 T1s or 2x21 E1s or 2x16 E1s on a T3/E3 line per board for analysis and monitoring– all within a single PC, including differing T1/E1 framing formats, physical layer alarms, and payloads.
GL's T3 E3 Analyzer also includes scrambling and subrate features. Subrate allows fractional bandwidth, i.e. less than the full 44.736 Mbps. Scrambling improves synchronization performance by randomizing repetitive patterns and long strings of zeros.
