Acterna announced the Asia-Pacific launch of its DA-3600A analyzer of wire-speed performance up to 2.4Gbps.

Claimed by the company as the industry's most powerful analyzer, the DA-3600A helps carriers by providing full monitoring and analysis of IP networks over a wide variety of network interfaces. Flow classification is supported for Packet over SONET (POS) and Ethernet networks and a user-friendly interface is supported for Ethernet, ATM and high-speed WAN.

"Carriers needing the ability to view IP traffic over a variety of network interfaces have been asking for a one-box solution like the DA-3600A," said Dave Marcellino, product marketing manager for the DA-3600A. "Based on initial customer feedback, it is the easiest-to-use tester for service providers analyzing IP traffic."

The new analyzer is a consolidated platform that adds all of the features currently available for the DA-3400 and DA-3600. It has the capability of supporting MPLS over Ethernet and features hardware upgrades that improve processing capability, add one Gigabyte capture buffer size and include an internal hard disk of 40GB.

Users will now have a choice of two different platforms: the DA-3600A supporting Ethernet, High Speed WAN, ATM and POS at speeds up to OC-48c/STM-16, and the DA-3400 supporting ATM, Ethernet or high-speed WAN at speeds up to Gigabit Ethernet.

Additional highlights of the DA-3600A include support for all interface modules currently available for the DA-3400 and the DA-3600, a command line operation for POS and Ethernet, full remote capability via IP, and support for VoIP and VoATM. The DA-3600A also has a single connection wizard to connect to any DA-3600A or DA-3400. It can be used locally or under a test OSS (such as Acterna's NetAnalyst test OSS) to provide a carrier-class distributed analysis system.
