Real-time video preview
Analyzes up to 10 video streams
and QoE metrics including MOS score
Providing lightning-fast results at the first step of fiber-link testing, ConnectorMax is the industry’s first platform-based, automated inspection application; it delivers quick pass/fail assessment of connector endfaces and is specifically designed to save both time and money in the field.
Third-Party Test Tools
This live-network packet capture utility makes it possible to look “inside” the packets and obtain data such as transmission time, source, destination, protocol type, etc. Users can then diagnose a problem or root out suspicious behavior. Wireshark is a standard utility on all FTB-1 platforms.
This TCP performance testing tool can create TCP and UDP data streams, which measure the throughput of a network that is carrying them. Thanks to various user-definable parameters, technicians can rely on JPerf to optimize or tune a network under test.
Network Stumbler verifies wireless network configurations, enabling field technicians to identify areas that have poor coverage or wireless interference, and helping them aim antennas for full effect and find unauthorized access points.
Ensure that your entire fleet of platforms is up-to-date with the latest software, and easily manage your maintenance contracts.
The Virtual Network Computing utility allows technicians to easily communicate settings to remote colleagues.
Microsoft Internet Explorer
Access the Web directly from your platform interface.
