ComProbe Sodera is a game changer! Never before has it been so easy to capture and view Bluetooth communications

Past News Releases


Frontline Test Equipment, Inc. is proud to announce the ComProbe Sodera Wideband Bluetooth Protocol Analyzer. ComProbe Sodera fundamentally changes the way Bluetooth engineers gather and analyze data. Now, with the ComProbe Sodera analyzer they can sniff, capture, decrypt, and decode all Bluetooth communications across all channels simultaneously.

The ComProbe Sodera analyzer listens to the complete 2.4 GHz ISM band, detecting and displaying all Bluetooth Smart (low energy) and Bluetooth Smart Ready (BR/EDR) communications. With ComProbe Sodera, Bluetooth traffic is captured LIVE. Virtually no setup is required. Using the included “post capture decryption” functionality, Bluetooth engineers can even enter link keys after the capture has completed and still fully decrypt and decode all of profiles, protocols, and Bluetooth data associated with that link.

“ComProbe Sodera is a game changer. Never before has it been so easy to capture and view Bluetooth communications,” says David Bean, Frontline President. “The ComProbe Sodera wideband analyzer gives our customers the ability to make better, more reliable, more interoperable Bluetooth enabled products faster, and with fewer resources.”

The ComProbe Sodera hardware connects to a laptop or computer installed with ComProbe software via a USB cable. The Sodera analyzer comes installed with a changeable, internal battery pack, making it extremely versatile in environments where AC power may be interrupted. For example, during testing in an automobile the battery pack provides the Sodera hardware with the power it needs to continue capturing even if the car ignition is turned off or power is interrupted.

ComProbe Sodera works with Frontline’s Bluetooth Audio Expert System. Engineers working on audio enabled Bluetooth devices can see Bluetooth, codec, and audio events correlated directly back to the Bluetooth protocol trace. Audio Expert System guides development and troubleshooting efforts to the most direct path saving hours of valuable time and resources.
