Protocol Analysis Probe - DNA (J6801B) (Discontinued)

A portable data acquisition and analysis system used for remote and distributed troubleshooting. You can control a DNA locally or remotely from a separate PC. The DNA includes acquisition hardware and accommodates line interface modules (LIMs).

The Protocol Analysis Probe - DNA (J6801B) achieves its small form factor by excluding an integrated PC. You can control a DNA locally or remotely from a separate PC. One or more DNAs can be added to create multi-port systems. Like the DNA MX and DNA PRO, the DNA includes an acquisition system and accommodates line interface modules. Under this configuration, the J6840A Network Analyzer runs on a PC and connects to a DNA to acquire data from the network under test.


  • Built-in power supply with AC or DC options
  • Rack-mountable
  • Includes the J6840A Network Analyzer Software CD with a single-user license
