Frontline Introduces the ComProbe 802.11 a/b/g/n Protocol Analyzer Boasting No Packet Loss

November 18, 2011

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Nov. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Frontline Test Equipment, Inc. is pleased to introduce the ComProbe 802.11 a/b/g/n Protocol Analyzer. This is the latest addition to their ComProbe family of protocol analyzers and is a game changer for 802.11 engineers. Using the ComProbe 802.11 analyzer means no more dropped or missing packet, incorrect timestamps, or troublesome Bluetooth coexistence issues. And it works with all 802.11 specifications including a, b, g, n, and supports Wi-Fi Direct.

Using the ComProbe 802.11 analyzer means you never have to worry about dropped packets. Frontline has built in a massive data buffer able to capture all packets flowing between devices. 802.11 developers no longer need to worry or wonder if they got all the data, if something was missed, or dropped. The ComProbe 802.11 analyzer delivers every pack sent or received – guaranteed. You get all of the data all of the time.

Bluetooth coexistence with the ComProbe 802.11 analyzer is a snap. It connects directly to the ComProbe BPA 500 Dual Mode Bluetooth Protocol Analyzer via ProbeSync , a Frontline technology that allows two or more analyzers to share a common clock. Once connected both 802.11 and Bluetooth packets can be displayed together, with accurate timestamps and precision that was previously unattainable. ComProbe software helps developers quickly identify, debug, and troubleshoot coexistence issues.

Frontline uses a modular approach to protocol analysis and has created the ComProbe Analysis System. Each Frontline ComProbe analyzer uses a specific hardware interface for the technology being tested – Bluetooth, 802.11, USB, High Speed UART, and SD/SDIO. Each can work individually or in combination with other ComProbe hardware interfaces through Frontline’s core ComProbe software running on a PC. No other tool on the market can do that. This modular approach provides engineers with a rich set of analysis tools and features in a uniform, consistent, and intuitive software platform. The right tool is a must. With Frontline tools you can “Debug Communications Faster”.
