GeoProbe G10 High Performance Probe Supports High Capacity, High Bandwidth Networks With a proven track record and worldwide deployment by Tier 1 operators, the GeoProbe family remains at the center of Tektronix Communications' network monitoring portfolio. In keeping with the pace of network technology changes and dynamic market conditions, Tektronix Communications has evolved its hardware to meet changing customer needs. Designed specifically to address high bandwidth interfaces and datacenter applications, the NEBS-compliant GeoProbe G10 platform features a distributed architecture optimized to handle high volume IP traffic with native support for both IPv4 and IPv6. The G10 serves as a primary collection and correlation agent for Tektronix Communications' Network Intelligence solution. Used to feed Iris applications, the G10 may be deployed in combination with existing SpIprobes to provide a comprehensive view of the network. ■
Distributed Architecture Platform optimized for handling high volume IP traffic Scalable Solution Two interchangeable models offer support for upgrade as needs change Stream-to-Disk Capabilities S2D processes support packet capture rates up to 6 Gbps
On-board Capabilities Offer Usability and Efficiencies
Store to Disk (S2D) ■
A key driver behind GeoProbe G10's processing power lies in the collection agent's ability to stream traffic to disk. Supporting configurable raw packet capture rates of up to 6 Gbps (requires the deployment of 2 controller disk arrays), S2D utilizes an expandable storage array.
Low-Touch Installation, Configuration and Maintenance ■
The GeoProbe G10 supports automated workflow wizards to facilitate installation and configuration tasks. In addition, scheduled group downloads streamline maintenance windows with built-in reversibility commands for ensuring upgrade integrity. With GeoProbe G10, all configuration changes are logged with UserID, Machine ID, and relevant timestamps.

Throughput, Disk Utilization/Health and Disk Wrap Times are proactively monitored with threshold alarms for early notification and system administrator intervention.
Basic Architecture and Physical Specifications
GeoProbe G10 At the highest level, the G10 is comprised of purpose-specific connection, processing and application boards and I/O ports. Available in two, interchangeable configurations, GeoProbe G10 offers the following models to meet individual and changing customer needs.
8x1 GE physical connection support with field upgradability to a Mixed Model.
Mixed Model supports 8 physical connections (1GE or 10GE) with up to four 10GE.
An uplink port on the application blade serves as the primary network interface while Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) interfaces provide connectivity to Shelf Management Modules. Networking Requirements: Three connections and associated IP addresses. Interface Support:
10G: 10Gbase-SR (850nm, multi-mode) and 10Gbase-LR (1310nm, single-mode)
1G: 1000base-SX (850nm, multi-mode) and1000base-LX (1310nm, multi-mode or single-mode), 1000base-T (RJ-45, cat5)
All optical ports are LC-type connectors
Mobile Data and Data Centers protocols: Gn/Gi
Next-Generation 4G Network protocols: LTE/EPC
Application Support through IrisView: Iris Performance Intelligence (IPI) Iris Session Analyzer (ISA) Iris Traffic Analyzer (ITA) Protocol Analyzer (PA) Rackmount Requirements: With a 3U footprint, the chassis is available for 4-post and center-post (19- or 23-inch) rack type mounting with supplied hardware Power Consumption: 600W max, -40 to -72 VDC (15A max), 430W typical
Storage Array for S2D The S2D subsystem enables the storage of packets and associated data on a separate, expandable disk array. Each disk array contains dual RAID controllers and supports RAID 0 and 5 configurations. While default settings enable the storage of all packets for all protocols, users have full control in not only limiting packet storage by specific protocols but also in how those selected packets will be stored (with or without truncation). This provides maximum utility and efficient use of disk capacity. Rackmount Requirements: As with the GeoProbe G10, the 2U storage array is available for 4-post and center-post rack type mounting with supplied hardware. Power Consumption*: 500W max, -40 to -72 VDC (12.5A max) Recommended Cabling: 12 AWG or larger cable for power and chassis ground (applies to both disk array and G10) *Actual power consumption will be affected by the number of disks used.
Multimedia and Convergence protocols: VoIP/IMS
