UpTime ASE Model 807-0109 (SKU 01802) T1 CSU/DSU
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, as well as operate as an external CSU DSU.
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.
- Multi-tenant management system
- Inline deployment
- 60 concurrent VoIP calls with MoS scores
- Inband and LAN management

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.
VoIP MoS scores
On-Demand Packet Capture
Real Time Bandwidth and Burst
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 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 site to site 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.
- 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.
The external T1 CSU/DSU ASE (Model 807-0109) is deployed on a T1 access line at the demarcation point between the provider network and the customer premise. It supports full and fractional (FT1) T1 networks and provides connectivity through the v.35 and additional cross connect signal (DSX-1) interfaces. The ASE’s drop-and-insert feature provides secondary DSX-1 interface that can connect to a private branch exchange at a customer’s site. The T1 timeslots can be segmented for a PBX on the same circuit carrying data traffic.
Option 1: T1 CSU/DSU deployed in front of the customer edge router.
