ProfiShark 10G+

A Unique Solution for Fiber Monitoring, with Enhanced Timestamp Precision

The ProfiShark 10G+ is a portable fiber aggregation TAP and troubleshooter. Built on the successful FPGA-based design of the ProfiShark series, the ProfiShark 10G+ network troubleshooter provides visibility into 10G fiber optic networks, directly to a USB 3.0 connection.

Thanks to the ProfiShark series’ signature compact design, the ProfiShark 10G+ can be easily transported on the field. Traffic capture and troubleshooting can be done with a laptop, or any computer with a USB 3.0 port. The ProfiShark 10G+ accepts any SR, LR, and ER SFP+ modules, and can function in both in-line and SPAN mode.

The ProfiShark 10G+ captures packets of all sizes and types. It also provides a wide assortment of hardware filters, statistics, and configuration options, through the ProfiShark Manager.

Why +

The ProfiShark 10G+ combines all the groundbreaking features of the ProfiShark 10G with added GPS and PPS functionalities, for advanced timestamping.

ProfiShark 10G+’s GPS timestamping feature allows real time analysis of aggregated and buffered traffic. It can tag packets with UTC-based, GPS-linked, nanosecond resolution timestamps (typical ± 16 ns precision). A PPS input is also possible for increased NTP-based timestamp precision.

ProfiShark Manager

ProfiShark Manager is an application designed specifically for the ProfiShark series, for use in parallel with a network analyzer (e.g. Wireshark, ClearSight, …).

Traffic statistics

Configurable counters for statistical network analysis and diagnostic, and QoS testing.

Port diagnostic and control

SFP modules status information, SPAN/In-line and loopback mode control.

Hardware filters

Configurable hardware filters and deep packet inspection (DPI).

Advanced timestamping

Configuration options for timestamping source (GPS/GLONASS, SNTP, RTC, system time), PPS input/output, latency compensation, and real time timing status information.

Capture options

Packet slicing (128 bytes), high resolution timestamps (8 ns), CRC error transmission, CRC32 preservation.

Direct capture to disk

ProfiShark Manager provides a way for the direct capture of traffic to a pcapng (PCAP Next Generation) file.
