JDSU has announced J-Profiler, the latest addition to the J-Complete suite of test applications that simplify the installation and maintenance of carrier Ethernet networks.
J-Profiler is a monitoring application or traffic explorer for live, in-service links.
In one feature set, J-Profiler enhances the troubleshooting capability for technicians who must identify network problems in circuits with up to thousands of active sessions, including Ethernet mobile backhaul networks where thousands of streams may exist across hundreds of cell sites.
J-Profiler helps isolate problems by providing automatic and non-intrusive discovery of Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), Q-in-Q, Internet Protocol (IP) and Transmission Control Protocol/User Datagram Protocol (TCP/UDP) streams. The tester also displays the bandwidth utilization and VLAN user priority set for each stream, allowing the technician to view top talkers by customer, traffic type, or application.
