This item is a data quality analyzer manufactured by Anritsu. The analyzer is capable of doing the six standard tests: throughput, latency, frame loss rate, back-to-back frame, system recovery and reset. All of which the results are displayed on the screen graphically or in table form. Anritsu focused on improving their analyzers through the automation and efficiency of these tests.

The MD1230A is also capable of QoS performance tests, BGP4 link/route flap tests (maximum of 8 devices) and SONET/SDH APS switching tests. This item has a variety of other features that can be seen from the manufacturers description. This specific module has the two options MD1230A-02 and MD1230A-03 which gives the analyzer a GPIB controller and an ethernet controller. It also contains an accessory box that had the standard equipment (being the front cover, power cord and side cover); along with the optional accessory, a mouse (item Z0541A).

The item is in very good condition with minor cosmetic wear. No module cards came with the unit, but the slots are protected by covers provided by the manufacturer.
