New to The Black Box LanScope Network Analyzer and Black Box are now working together. It’s been a great start to a great relationship, and we are excited to be able to provide new equipment, better prices and better service to all of our customers.
Recently, Black Box has developed a network analyzer; I know what you are thinking, I buy mine through Fluke (and you’re not alone.) They have dominated the market for some time, but now there’s some competition.

You will be amazed at what Black Box can offer at a fraction of the cost of the Fluke device!

The LanScope Network Analyzer from Black Box is an Advanced Gigabit network and cable tester that provides expert help at an affordable price. LanScope has several features that the Networks NetTool doesn’t offer

  • 3.5” Color LCD w/Touch Screen
  • Two Independent Test Ports
  • Use as a Responder in Loopback testing
  • Capture up to 10,000 packets of data (10 captures at 1,000 packets each.)

Not only does the LanScope offer Protocol detection but it also shows packet count and traffic percentage (not just the detection.)

What truly makes this the best network analyzer around? The $1895 price tag (vs. $3100 for the comparable Fluke device.)
