Viewer Screen: Field formatted and Native view of ISO 8583 data
Now TranScan/LAN can do for your
LAN connections, what
TranScan/8583 did for your WAN connections.
TranScan/LAN transforms your PC
into a powerful productivity tool for both software developement and
production troubleshooting. TranScan/LAN is a software package designed
to support the monitoring and analysis of communications messages on a
Bank Card local area network (LAN). TranScan/LAN provides a rich set of
layered functions, addressing the needs of such varied groups as
Network Technicians running Bank Card Networks, Software Developers
implementing new functions for those networks and Network Certifiers
ensuring the capability of Network participants.
In addition to breaking down the various layers of LAN
protocols, TranScan/LAN also parses bankcard application messages
formatted according to ISO 8583 specifications.
- Display formats distinguish between message data and
communications protocol, consecutively numbering messages for easy
recall and reference.
- All ISO 8583 fields are clearly displayed and labeled.
- All ISO 8583 format errors are flagged.
- Now with optional Response Time Reporter.
The optional Response Time Reporter add-on to
TranScan/LAN offers realtime calculation of response time, plus logging
of response time statistics for spreadsheet analysis of
application response times.
TranScan/LAN supports a variety of ISO 8583 Dialects.
(And we're always looking for more.)
- Wright Express
- Your dialect - contact us! For us - it's only a
table change. For you - it's a quantum leap in productivity.
TranScan/LAN users may select from a range of message
views for real time display, captured data display or print.
- Message Routing and Type provides
a one line summary for each message.
- Message Overview displays selected
fields while reducing message screen wrap.
- Complete Message displays all the
ISO 8583 data fields as well as the message bit map.
- Hex Message Data provides an
uninterpreted hexidecimal view of the complete ISO 8583 message.
- Native Monitor View uses
Ethertest™ from Frontline Test Equipment for mnemonic decoding of LAN
The TranScan/LAN package includes
the TranScan Viewer, which supports input from different sources:
Paste the message from the
Read a file containing the
binary image of the message.
Read a text file containing
the hexadecimal character representation of one or more messages.
Read a file previously
saved by TranScan Viewer containing one or more messages.
ActiveX Code Component
(COM) Automation client (formerly known as OLE Automation
client). You can write your own calls to TranScan Viewer in
Visual C++, Visual Basic, or Visual Basic for Applications.
TranScan/LAN add-on to FTS
Ethertestä or Wireshark, LAN protocol
The TranScan/LAN PC-based architecture allows our system
to grow along with your requirements.
- Our Table driven design facilitates easy adaptation
to ISO 8583 changes and enhancements.
- Data you capture while monitoring a communications
line is kept in Windows/DOS file format, allowing easy access by user
applications and data portability.
- Captured data can be printed on standard PC printers.
- Functional enhancements and new features are only a
software release away. Other protocol analyzers change only when their
hardware or firmware changes.
TranScan provides an invaluable tool for:
The TranScan is a powerful productivity tool for programmers during the
developement and testing of program code which produces and processes
incoming and outgoing ISO credit and debit messages. All ISO fields are
clearly labeled and all ISO format errors are flagged. One keystroke
switches between ISO dialects such as MasterCard, VISA, Deluxe and ACI
BASE 24. The TranScan provides ongoing value during the program
maintenance and regression testing.
- Quality assurance and network certification
staff: Validating incoming and outgoing
transactions in newly installed systems becomes easy. Printed output
from the TranScan can document both successful completion and trouble
- Network Technicians:
Network support staff can see immediately what type of data is flowing
on communication lines, can identify all of the transaction fields
present and so can provide more intelligent input to the problem
recognition and troubleshooting process. Even physical circuit problems
are identified more readily. Noisy circuits will produce ISO message
with format errors which TranScan will detect and flag
