ProfiShark 10G

A Unique Solution for Comprehensive Fiber Monitoring

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.

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).

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.
