XRA-31 Version 3.1
Posted by Dieter Dobbelaere on 05 November 2019 10:33 AM

Excentis is happy to announce the new version of the XRA-31!

The system now supports the use of a downstream SC-QAM channel as reference.
This allows you to capture upstream traffic (both A-TDMA and OFDMA) in absence of an OFDM channel, extending the debugging capabilities of the XRA-31 to an even wider range of DOCSIS 3.0/3.1

Important ByteBlower WEP upgrade
Posted by Dries Decock on 16 July 2019 10:02 PM

Version 2.10.2 of the Wireless Endpoints is an important bugfix. We received reports on low performance on the Samsung Galaxy S8. Research showed bad performance, most noticeable in combination with Android 8. One of the system calls did not behave as expected and is behaving on the other platforms. This method was introduced in version 1.1.24.
