Intelligent troubleshooting wherever it's needed

Setting the standard in intelligent compact analyzers, the new Notebook Investigator range provides all the power and flexibility you need to make developing and supporting Fibre Channel devices, systems and storage networks easier than ever before.

As well as providing new intelligent analysis features like topology mapping and an extensive configurable onboard protocol database, Notebook Investigator products are also highly portable. They provide up to four channels of 1 and 2Gbps analysis with traffic generation (depending on which analyzer module is chosen) in a single compact unit.

Two analyzer modules are currently available:

  • FS2000: provides up to 4 channels of analysis with traffic generation
  • FP2000: provides 2 channels of analysis

Both modules are available in 1Gbps only and 2Gbps/1Gbps configurations. The 1Gbps system can easily be upgraded to 2Gbps/1Gbps for maximum flexibility.

The FS and FP analyzer modules integrate with most notebook computers using a PCMCIA 32-bit Cardbus interface, or are available as fully configured systems ready to go out of the box (supplied with Xyratex's FCI Laptop Platform).
