Package Network Loopback Tool MAKS-ЕМВ

MAKS-EMB is designed for use during Ethernet, Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet networks maintenance and repair.

MAKS-EMB can function either in its basic Loopback modification or in extended Analyzer modification. MAKS-EMB can operate either in combination with Tester and Analyzer MAKS-EM as a loopback tool or as a self-sustained Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet tester. Remote control is conducted via PC connected to the tool via a USB port or Ethernet and test results are displayed on PC screen.

It will be expedient to use the tool as an independent analyzer if metrological characteristics are not required, for example at package networks operation.

MAKS-EMB is powered from a power unit or PoE from additional RJ45.

Key Features (Basic Loopback Modification)

  • loopback at physical, data link, networking and other layers, with or without MAC and IP swapping or substitution;
  • received and transmitted traffic statistics collection and display;
  • input traffic filtering at data link and networking layers;
  • OAM (Operation, Administration and Maintenance) protocol support;
  • remote control via USB port, or Web management via auxiliary Ethernet port;
  • ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) support;
  • DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) support;
  • MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) support;
  • upgradeable firmware;
  • English/Russian remote control software.

 Additional Features (Analyzer Modification)

  • Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet interface testing;
  • traffic generation and analysis at data link, networking and above layers with setting of load, ToS/DSCP prioritization, packet length, source and destination MAC- and IP-addresses and other protocol fields;
  • throughput, back-to-back, latency and frame loss measurements as per RFC2544;
  • channel integrity and IP routes testing: ping and traceroute support;
  • cabling diagnostics: cable quality, distance to failure, crossover, etc.;
  • PDV (Packet Delay Variation) measurement;
  • BER (Bit Error Rate) measurement;

The Device Provides

  • LED indicators for Link, Receive, Transmit, and running modes;
  • loopback activation from keypad and remotely;
  • Ethernet/Gigabit Ethernet modes switching.
