compact tester for access and transport

ARGUS 300: The universal broadband tester
The new ARGUS 300 all-in-one tester scores with improved performance when testing broadband interfaces. The high-quality multifunction tester is ideally equipped for the expansion of future networks.

Modern design with new housing concept

Its robust design combines the requirements of a compact handheld tester for daily use in the field with the performance of high-end testers. The ARGUS tester with touch display combines intuitive operation with the familiar ARGUS menu navigation. The redesigned GUI
combines the complexity of a combination tester with the ease of use of a smartphone with the help of many graphical elements. A new innovative internal help function supports the safe and fast interpretation of test results.

All required broadband interfaces

The ARGUS 300 reliably tests all broadband interfaces, from GPON, FTTx (PtP) and (106 + 212 MHz), ADSL, VDSL and SHDSL to super vectoring and bonding, in the usual high quality. It also has many other interfaces and test functions, such as 2.5 GB Ethernet, OTDR, WLAN, copper, TDR, RFL, Triple Play and much more. Extremely powerful hardware is provided especially for tests in the Gigabit Ethernet range (up to 10 GigE).

Additional test functions

Thanks to the integrated WIFI interface, the ARGUS 300 communicates independently with its environment - a PC connection is no longer required. Integrated into your order management system, the ARGUS 300 marks the start of the next generation of broadband testing. The connection to well-known tools in particular increases the flexibility of the Argus 300. Speedtest from Ookla and iPerf are established and well-known solutions on the market that can now also be operated with the Argus tester.
