Designed to capture packets (Don't Drop any Packet)

The Frontline 802.11 protocol analyzer lets you passively capture wireless traffic like never before. No other device on the market provides the precision, reliability, or capacity to gather wireless data better than the Frontline 802.11 protocol analyzer! 

The sheer volume of 802.11 data flowing between devices can be staggering, but gone are the days when you missed or dropped large numbers of packets because your analyzer simply couldn’t keep up with the amount of data flowing through the air. Frontline has met the challenge head-on by building into the Frontline 802.11 analyzer a staggering ~250GB data buffer

Precise and synced Timestamps

The ComProbe 802.11 introduces a new level of precision regarding timestamps and Bluetooth Coexistence. Now developers can connect the ComProbe 802.11 analyzer with the Frontline BPA 600 or Frontline SODERA using Frontline's ProbeSync™ technology - enabling two or more analyzers to share a common clock. 

Hardware interface provides

Massive buffer - no or essentially fewer dropped packets

• Precise packet timestamps synchronized with the Frontline Sodera or BPA 600 through ProbeSync™ technology, which allows devices to share a common clock 

Probe Sync

Bluetooth® Coexistence View

Once connected developers can clearly see both 802.11 packets and Bluetooth 4.0 or 5 +HS packets together in one coexistence view.

The analysis of 802.11 and Bluetooth data packets in one view is possibly one of the most challenging tasks for wireless device developers. Capturing the precise timing, size, and frequency of each and every packet is essential to successfully developing and debugging devices using both technologies, and until now has been, at best elusive.

Frontline Software provides here:

• Improved coexistence view 

• Spectrum analysis 

Key Features and Benefits (summary)

Get the Data You Need - See ALL of the data ALL of the time and never drop a packet. Capture 100% of the data with our built-in ~250GB buffer.

Trust the Data You Get - Get exact timing information for each packet. The Frontline 802.11 provides reliable and accurate timestamps for all packets.

Bluetooth Coexistence is a snap! - The coexistence view combines 802.11 and Bluetooth 4.0 or 5 +HS packets into one view with precise timestamp synchronization using Frontline's ProbeSync technology.

Analyze devices using the spectrum of 802.11 protocols - 802.11 a/b/g/n support means you don't have to wonder if an 802.11 protocol is supported.
