Datasheet

UpTime ASE Model 807-0115 (SKU 01965) 4x T1/E1 Inline Probe

UpTime Analysis Service Element (ASE) is a flexible inline hardware probe. Designed to monitor wireline data with fail to wire capabilities, the sensor provides Physical Layer (Layer 1) to Application Layer 7, real time analytics.

The ASE is a single, powerful suite of tools that provide end-to-end visibility (SLA) into your network and applications via a unified platform for real-time monitoring, troubleshooting and analyzing applications, including VoIP, to help you make informed decisions about the performance of your Wide Area Network as well as applications that run across the WAN. More information on the real-time visibility can be found at http://www.netscout.com/uptime.

Key Features:

  • Multi-tenant management system
  • Inline deployment
  • 150 concurrent VoIP calls with MoS scores
  • Inband and LAN management
  • IPv4 and IPv6 monitoring and management
  • Last mile keep alive upon CPE Router failure provides 100% availability and fault isolation
  • Pro-active SNMP support
  • 300 site to site SLA measurements
  • On-demand packet capture
  • Support for 100 custom applications
  • Continuous 1 second monitoring with burst analysis
  • Supports last cry, remote site power outage notifications

This combined remote office monitoring view of time-synchronized local traffic across the WAN is the ideal solutions for triaging the network local exchange, the wide area network, the class of service (CoS) configuration, VoIP analysis and application and server response times.

Error Visibility

The UpTime remote probes (virtual or hardware) are managed with a central, multi-tenant scalable system, spanning the entire delivery infrastructure for complex, multi-site, enterprise MPLS architectures. Visual UpTime can be used as a self -managed solution by private enterprises with a distributed network environment and multiple data centers; as well as a Managed Service, offered by many of the top global service providers, including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, CenturyLink, Level 3, and XO Communications. Managed Service providers host the TruView UpTime server in their cloud while managing, maintaining, and providing a collaborative view into the solution for the enterprise. Other managed options include enterprise hosting within their private data center and the service provider managing the system.

Real-Time Network, Application, VoIP Visibility

UpTime ASE wireline sensors (probes) provides a real-time view into a remote site, allowing for immediate change-configuration validation, accuracy in bandwidth analysis, auto-discovery of applications, and VoIP MoS scores. This allows network administrators quicker mean time to identify the culprit and claim, “it’s not the network!”

Network Burst Analysis and Capacity Planning

With continuous 1 second monitoring, the network administrator can identify the time the network is bursting at 90% or greater for an extended time and identify the application flow causing the congestion on the network. The network administrator will be able to say “it’s this application using this IP address talking to this server on this VLAN with this CoS tag that is causing the congestion on the network. It’s not the network!”

Individual and Site VoIP Monitoring

Analyzing customer VoIP traffic, the ASE provides remote site based MoS analysis and individual call details to validate the settings and identify errors on the network or within the UCS solution. All time correlated, so that the network administrator can say, “It’s not the network!”

On-Demand Remote Packet Capture

Being inline, on the wire, allows on-demand, targeted packet capture, based upon the already identified issue. By using basic or complex filters, and even specific traffic triggers, the IT team can quickly identify an issue on the network and show the appropriate support staff the issue. Packets can be saved or exported into third party tools to be shared with others. This real time, remote site, packet level visibility will shrink the mean time to identify the application and server issues via the network tool set.

Site to Site Network SLA (Service Level Agreements)

The ASE inline probe provides customer SLAs on up to 8 CoS tagged traffic. Utilizing a combination of actual customer and synthetic traffic, the ASE to ASE SLAs includes round-trip delay (RTD), availability, packet delivery ratio (PDR) and jitter. This allows the network team a complete picture of how effective the network is running for each application assigned to a CoS.

Unique Features

  • Inline fail to wire will keep the circuit alive even if there is no power to the unit.
  • Provides NetFlow exporting as an additional data source to any 3rd party collector.
  • Real time, pro-active performance threshold events and forwarding.
  • Power outage notification when deployed inline in front of the WAN router.
  • BGP Keep alive should the Customer Premise Router (CPE) lose power or fail, insuring 100% availability of the local loop.
  • VLAN and CoS monitoring and validation of correct application assignments.

Deployment

The 4xT1/E1 inline probe ASE enhances the data analysis functionality of the TruView and Visual Performance Manager systems for enterprises with two to four T1 or E1 circuits terminating at a single location. The ASE provides up to 6.176 Mbps (T-standard) or 8.192 Mbps (E-standard) of detailed network traffic analysis and management, while maintaining full wire speed pass-through of all traffic. The ASE supports point-to-point protocol (MLPPP) T1 links.

The 4xT1/E1 ASE includes LinkSafe™ technology to protect circuit integrity in case of a power outage. It also delivers a notification alarm if there is a power failure.

Designed for locations with multiple circuits terminating at a single device, the 4xT1/E1 is typically deployed as an inline probe between the service provider's edge device and the customer's termination equipment. The figure below highlights the multilink deployment for the 4xT1/E1 ASE.
