• FF WARRANTY —1 Year
Make the LanScope Network Analyzer an
essential part of your tool kit. Use it for installing,
monitoring, maintaining, upgrading, and troubleshooting any network. With this one tool, you
have one of the most complete suites of testing
and analysis functions available at a very
affordable price.
Use the Inline mode to non-intrusively monitor
network traffic (10/100/1000BASE-T) to identify
protocols, port usage, VoIP statistics, and network
utilization. The LanScope can capture and store
up to 10,000 packets with user-defined filters
for detailed analysis in the field. Or download
test results over the network or to a flash drive.
The analyzer features two RJ-45 ports, which
you can use for tests such as PING, Link, Trace,
and Discovery to quickly identify network prob-
lems. The LanScope can also generate up to 100%
traffic loading with control of packet rate and size
to demonstrate network performance
at various traffic levels.
You can perform a stress test that generates
traffic and measures performance in accordance
with RFC 2544. Run the test using the two
independent ports on a single unit or run it with
a second unit located remotely on the network.
PoE tests include voltage and inline current
measurement to determine the actual power
used by a device.
Lastly, use the LanScope to test cables for
shorts, opens, split pairs, and reversed pairs;
measure cable length; and to generate tones
for cable tracing.
Pro-Tips
#1. Identify bandwidth bandits.
If your network suddenly slows down, you may have a bandwidth bandit on your hands. If you
suspect someone is streaming video or downloading movies, be a sleuth and find the bandit’s address
with LanScope. Use it to identify all the top talkers on your network. You may even discover that only
a few addresses are using 50% or more of your total bandwidth.
Won’t they be surprised when you show up at their door?
#2. Discover unwanted guests.
An important part of your job is protecting your network. LanScope can help. Use it to identify
illegal devices on your network. If a guest or coworker connects an unauthorized laptop to your
network, you need to know about it.

The 10/100 and 10/100/1000 Copper Taps
autonegiotiate for speed and provide a complete
copy of the data from a full-duplex copper link to
your network analyzer. The tap operates passively
and works regardless of traffic levels.
If you want to monitor, transmit, and
receive data streams at the same time, choose a
10/100/1000 Copper Aggregator. It combines,
transmits, and receives data streams so you can see
them together without switching from one to the
other. Choose between models with either a 256
or 512 MB buffer. Need a larger buffer? Order the
1-GB Aggregator Tap, which reduces the chance
of dropped packets on Gigabit links.
For fiber optic monitoring, use the Optical Taps
on either side of the full-duplex link being tested
and a standard full-duplex analyzer connection.
Optical Taps have LC connectors and split the
full-duplex signal in 50/50 ratios from the network
into two signals, sending one back to your
network and the other to your monitoring device
(a dual-receive capture card is required). For fiber
optic applications where you need to monitor links
running 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE) traffic, order
the 10-GbE Optical Tap.
The Rackmount Bracket holds up to three

Suspect your fiber network is compromised?
Do some fiber espionage with the F3X Fiber Fault
Finder Gun. Use this infrared light detection probe
to gather the intelligence you need to ID leaks,
breaks, bends, and faults in your fiber network.
You’ll save hours of your time in troubleshooting and hours in network downtime, saving
your organization tens of thousands of dollars in
lost productivity. With this new patent-pending
technology, you’ll be able to pinpoint faults in
your fiber network to within inches.

Point and shoot.
To find leaks, just point your F3X Gun at your
fiber cable run and squeeze the trigger. Then
sweep it over the fiber. Get ready to be amazed.
The F3X can actually see light emanating from any
faults, breaks, and bends in the cable. It works in
bright daylight, too, eliminating the need to turn
off the lights or wait until nightfall to work on
outdoor cable.
In the closet, you’ll be able to uncover
hard-to-find light loss points in connectors mated
in bulkhead adapters, patch panels, boots, fanouts,
even some dust caps.

Fiber
The F3X is so sensitive and versatile you can use it in bright daylight to detect faults.
No need to wait until dark or to block out ambient light.
With the F3X Fiber Fault Finder Gun, you’ll find
problems that you previously were unable to
diagnose with traditional methods. It offers far
more functionality than a visible laser light source.
Plus you can use it in OTDR dead zones and in
splice enclosures where it’s critical to pinpoint the
exact location of faults. Once the gun detects a
light loss point, it gives you an audio/visual fault
indication.
The F3X is great for troubleshooting all
fiber networks. But it’s particularly beneficial for
mission-critical and secure fiber networks, such
as in government, military, education, healthcare,
finance, etc.
Highly sensitive to signals.
The F3X is so sensitive, it will pick up light
signals other fault finders can’t— saving you a
bundle of time. Use it to pinpoint faults through
most jacket types and buffer colors. It will even
uncover leaks in fibers with dark blue, green,
and black coats.
The F3X can also identify damaged splices
through the splice jacket. And it can pick up signals
from bends several times more gentle than those
induced by many fiber identifiers.
The F3X can also help you locate inefficient and
poorly mated connectors, bad splices, and much,
much more.
Upper-level leaks.
Think you have a leak or fault in an overhead
fiber line? Before you pull out the ladder, pull out
the F3X.
For aerial operations inside and out, choose the
optional F3X Aerial Filter and Scope (page 21).
Attach them to your F3X Gun and you have
everything you need to quickly find leaks in
overhead lines. What was once impossible is now
possible. All you need to do is point and shoot.
The filter, scope, and gun can detect cable
damage from excessive bends, rodents, and even
shotgun pellets from more than 100 feet away.
Best of all, they work in sunshine and bright indoor
light, including industrial bays with high ceilings.
There’s no need to wait until dark or to turn the
lights out. The F3X will find the leak.
Surveillance operations.
The F3X is so versatile, you can use it to do
the following:
• Raw fiber identification. (End and side
access. Long and short distances.) Find fiber in
a bundle when you have access to the fiber ends.
• Connector panel port identification.
(Short and long distances.) Find a port in a patch
panel by scanning the face of the box. You don’t
need internal access, clamping devices, or bare
fiber adapters. (Continued on page 20.)

F3X Fiber Fault Finder Gun (Continued)
Outfit your F3X Fiber Fault Finder Gun with an Aerial Filter and Scope,
and all you need to do to detect leaks in overhead fiber is point and shoot.
• Bent and broken fiber leak detection.
Locate bends and fractures in bright indoor and
outdoor light without the need to block ambient
light. Because of its infrared operation, the gun
works with many blue, green, and black buffer
coatings that can block visible red laser light.
• Connector end-face splatter detection.
Probe connectors from the side and ID damaged
end faces by the light that is splattered — without
using a microscope.
• Ceramic ferrule fractures or
misalignments. Probe connectors from the side
to detect sub-surface fractures inside the ferrule.
This is particularly useful with anaerobic adhesive
connectors.
• Epoxyless connector leak detection.
Identify inefficient internal splices by sensing light
leaking through the ferrule or the connector.
• Mechanical or fusion splice leak
detection. Scan splices from the side to identify
damaged splices, leaks, and light scatters. Because
of its infrared operation, the F3X Gun can
outperform visible laser sources.
• Bulkhead adapter alignment. Scan
bulkhead adapters in patch panels to locate light
scatters from worn or fractured alignment ferrules.
• Patch panel adapter failures and raw
fiber ID. (Side access.) Scan the secondary side
of connectorized bulkhead adapters to locate light
scatters from worn or fractured alignment ferrules.
• Splitter troubleshooting. Identify where
visible lasers do not function by scanning the
secondary side of splitters.
Three MOs.
Use the F3X in three modes of operation:
1. Raw infrared light detection.
Detect infrared light including traffic, tracer
signals, and CW light. This enables you to locate
severe bends and breaks in lightly colored fibers.
2. 2-kHz remote tracer source light detection.
Examine ports, fibers, splices, or connectors
for the presence of a 2-kHz modulated signal.
Any light between 1000–1700 nm will be
detected. This method also enables you to ID light
at uncovered ports up to 300 kilometers away
or to locate severe bends and breaks in most
250- or 900-µm buffered fibers.
3. Local tracer source detection.
In this mode, the F3X Gun senses light from
its own internal source at the rear of the unit. This
is the most sensitive mode of operation. Use it to
detect breaks in nearly all 250- and 900-µm fibers,
usually at the ends of a cable at the ports, splices,
and connectors.

Pro-Tips
Test before you pull.
One of the first things you should do when
working on a new fiber installation is test the
fiber on the reel. Use a visual light source or
fault locator to check for kinks, cracks, and
breaks in the cables. If there’s a problem,
you’ll know it before you spend a lot of
time and money on installation.

Pro-Tips
Have lots of splicing to do?
Go fusion.
Although the initial investment in a fusion
splicer may start at $10,000, the cost per splice
is very inexpensive, and may only be a dollar or
two. Fusion splicers are ideal for outside plant
splicing on single-mode cable.
If you need to make just a few splices, use
a mechanical splicing method. The cost per
splice is higher, but you don’t have a large
initial investment in equipment.
