Stand Alone Passive Protocol Analyzer for 1G Ethernet

Overview

Captiv8 Micro is an easy to use, packet capture device for monitoring ethernet networks.

What It Can Do For You

Captiv8 Micro is a stand-alone device that fits in the palm of your hand. It provides basic packet capture capabilities and it can be connected to a network and left to run unattended.

Why It’s Different

Captiv8 Micro is unique, offering a robust, standalone protocol analyzer that is cost effective and suitable for use by network operators, cable operators or system integrators requiring basic packet capture capabilities.

Features

  • Very small form-factor approx 2"x4"x1"
  • 1G capture rate
  • tcpdump capture filter
  • Single RJ45 connection
  • SD card storage

  • SSH for configuration and control
  • SFTP for capture retrival
  • NTP time sync

Subsystems

Captive8 Micro supports subsystems such as the following:

  • Gateways
  • Switches
  • PBX's
  • Ethernet
KPIs
  • PCAP for post-analysis in Wireshark, etc.

Configurable Parameters
  • Capture filter
  • Catpure schedule

Automation API

User commands can be fully automated using HTTP API. This includes performing all test control functions as well as collecting results and metrics.

Use Cases

eNodeB Under Test

In the scenario where the eNodeB is to be tested, it can be tested by the Valid8 4G Network Emulator emulating the core network. Additionally, load and conformance tests are available for interfaces S1-MME and S1-U. In the case where the eNodeB needs to be tested on the RF side, it can be tested by the Valid8 4G UE Emulator.

Supported Scenarios:
  • ‍Power on / Start up
  • Attach
  • TAU
  • Attach
  • eRAB Setup
  • Detach
  • X2 handover
  • Emulates MME (for S1-MME) and SGW (for S1-U) along with all other needed core network elements, exposing all internal interfaces
  • Conformance tests available for S1-MME, S1-U, and X2

HSS Under Test

For testing the HSS Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate S6a traffic to test performance and stability.

Supported Scenarios:
  • AIR/A
  • ULR/A
  • CLR/A
  • NOR/A
  • PUR/A
  • RSR/A
  • ISR/A

MCPTT Application Server Under Test

For testing the MCPTT AS, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP PTT calls to test performance and stability.

Supported Scenarios:
  • REGISTER
  • INVITE Audio/Video calls
  • MESSAGE
  • UPDATE

PCRF Under Test

For testing the PCRF, the 4G Network Emulator can wrap around the PCRF with the core network and IMS.

Supported Scenarios:
  • ‍CC-Request / Answer (CCR / CCA)
  • 4 Re-Auth-Request / Answer (RAR / RAA)
  • 4 Capability-Exchange-Request / Answer (CER / CEA)
  • 4 Session-Termination-Request / Answer (STR / STA)
  • 4 Abort-Termination-Request / Answer (ASR / ASA)
  • 4 Device-Watchdog-Request / Answer (DWR / DWA)
  • 4 Disconnect-Peer-Request / Answer (DPR / DPA)
  • ‍Emulates core network, Diameter, and IMS nodes as needed for testing the PCRF, exposing all internal interfaces
  • Conformance tests available for each interface (S7, S9, Rx, Gx)

PGW Under Test

For testing the PGW, the 4G Network Emulator can wrap around the node using the S5/8, S7, and SGi interfaces. Traffic can be originated from real or emulated UE and IoT devices.

Supported Scenarios:
  • ‍Create Session
  • 4 Delete Session
  • 4 Create Bearer
  • 4 Modify Bearer
  • 4 Delete Bearer
  • 4 Echo
  • ‍Emulates all required nodes for wrapping around, including MME and PCRF for testing over interfaces S5/8, S7, and SGi
  • Exposes all internal interfaces
  • Conformance tests available for each interface (S5/8, S7, SGi)

RFSS Under Test

For testing the RFSS, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP PTT calls on ISSI or CSSI to test performance and stability.

Supported Scenarios:
  • REGISTER
  • INVITE SU calls
  • INVITE SU calls
  • PTT RTP IMBE/AMBE

SIP Client Under Test

For testing the SIP Client, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP calls to test performance and stability.

Supported Scenarios:
  • REGISTER
  • INVITE Audio/Video calls
  • MESSAGE
  • UPDATE
  • PRACK

SIP Server Under Test

For testing the SIP Server, the Valid8 Tester can generate SIP calls to test performance and stability.

Supported Scenarios:
  • REGISTER
  • INVITE Audio/Video calls
  • MESSAGE
  • UPDATE
  • PRACK
