Exegin Announces the Q51 ZigBee Protocol Analyzer
September 13, 2005 — Exegin Technologies Limited announces its
first product based on ZigBee networking technology, the Q51 Protocol
The Q51 allows developers and maintainers of ZigBee devices to
monitor and analyze network traffic across an internet connection. Q51
transceivers can be placed in one or more vantage points to capture
all traffic - even on large networks with hidden nodes - for
forwarding to a workstation for decoding and analysis. Plug-ins for
the industry standard Ethereal protocol analyzer provide full decoding
of all layers, from 802.15.4 to ZigBee application profiles.
The stand-alone transceivers can scan all 2.4GHz channels and are
available in a variety of configurations, with internal antennas or
for external antennas and powered by an external supply or through
Power Over Ethernet (802.11af).
The Q51 is currently in beta testing and will be shipping in
the first quarter of 2006.
Exegin is a Vancouver-based, privately owned developer of cutting-edge networking technology. For more information, visit www.exegin.com.
