Aggregating Ethernet Network Tap

Company Overview:

The Frontline family of protocol analysis tools represents 30+ years experience in wired and wireless communications analysis for industrial and commercial applications. In 2016, Frontline was acquired by Teledyne LeCroy, a leading manufacturer of advanced test instruments.

Product Overview:

The Ethernet ComProbe captures and aggregates bi-directional Ethernet data and sends it to the analysis PC via a single USB port. The Ethernet ComProbe is non-intrusive and completely invisible to the network. The Ethernet ComProbe tap captures both good and bad (or broken) Ethernet frames that are otherwise discarded by regular network interface cards (NIC). Frontline¿s Ethernet ComProbe tap guarantees network connection even without USB port power. It delivers comprehensive, bi-directional, aggregated Ethernet data for ALL packets passing through the network.
