Locate, Interpret and Repair Local Loop Faults with Ease
Ensure QoS for Triple-Play Deployments For many telcos, the launch of ADSL technology has gone quite smoothly; however, preparing the copper loop plant for triple-play services is another story—let alone deploying IPTV over the latest DSL, VDSL2. EXFO’s AXS-200/610 Copper Test Set enables field technicians to view the entire VDSL2 spectrum in order to identify and find disturbances and signal issues that affect voice and video delivery over the last mile. It also offers an extensive range of single-ended tests that help field technicians quickly locate and repair the faults that affect quality of service (QoS). 30 MHz Advanced Local-Loop Testing Thanks to a 30 MHz bandwidth and wide dynamic range, the AXS-200/610 can test the local loop for almost every service that can be carried. Loop qualification becomes simple with the AXS-200/610’s service-specific automated tests, reference cursors, specific noise filters and specialized loop evaluation algorithms. This unit is ideal for VDSL2, ADSL2+, ADSL2, ADSL, G.SHDSL, HDSL, HDSL2, T1/E1 and ISDN. Prequalification in Seconds with the Automated Test Pass/Fail Indication Providing complete feedback for quick pass/fail analysis thanks to its Auto Test feature, the AXS-200/610 simplifies the technician’s job. This convenient, single-ended test tool allows for fast cable assessment to determine whether or not it is acceptable for VDSL2 and ADSL2+ services, based on predefined pass/fail criteria. No More Guesswork with the Loop Mapper The AXS-200/610’s convenient and powerful Loop Mapper tool simplifies the detection of faults, bridge taps or cable ends. By automatically selecting the time-domain reflectometer (TDR) and/or the frequency-domain reflectometer (FDR), based on the current line conditions, Loop Mapper displays a straightforward wiring diagram that contains distances, for easy interpretation. Detecting Excessive Spectral Noise You can count on the AXS-200/610’s Power Spectral Noise feature to manage the spectrum in your cable bundle. The unit’s graphic display helps you determine which service is deployed on the loop and at what power level. This is the best technique to use in identifying signals that are too strong for the bundle, and it is essential in unbundled local loop environments for spectral policing. Complete Metallic Testing with DMM and VF With the AXS-200/610, AC and DC voltage measurements are automatically performed and documented, without having to press countless buttons or having to move the test leads. The AXS-200/610 also measures AC and DC current to offer a complete picture of the electrical stability on the circuit under test. Additionally, the AXS-200/610 measures capacitance and resistance, while providing an automatic conversion of the measured capacitance/resistance into distance values. The Essential Triple-Play Last Mile Deployment Tool The AXS-200/610 is the ideal local-loop prequalification and troubleshooting tool for xDSL services, up to VDSL2. This instrument enables telcos and contractor personnel to identify the causes of unsuccessful triple-play, DSL and/or VF circuit deployment, while helping cable repair crews to locate with precision and to eliminate loop faults. The AXS-200/610 puts an end to the guesswork involved in locating loop faults, freeing up valuable staff and company resources, which saves precious time. Thanks to its single-ended test capabilities, service providers not only see a reduction in CAPEX but also in OPEX—making the AXS-200/610 a money-saving tool. Designed to Evolve with Your Network Providing complete local-loop testing with a bandwidth of up to 30 MHz for copper/DSL/triple-play, the AXS-200/600 series is designed to evolve with your network. Additionally, these units offer accurate ADSL1/2/2+, VDSL2 and Ethernet-based analysis of triple-play services (voice, video and data).
