Item Description:

Simplifying IP Triple-Play Testing
EXFO's AXS-200/650 IP Triple-Play Test Set offers a quick, yet thorough method for deploying triple-play services—IP-based data, VoIP and IPTV—facilitated by pass/fail-driven automated tests.

The AXS-200/650 delivers advanced IPTV measurements—packet jitter, packet loss, PCR jitter, MDI, PID viewer and IGMP zap time—both in Terminate (stand-alone) and Through mode operation. The AXS-200/650 also monitors residential VoIP call flow and statistics, facilitating VoIP QoS assurance.

Key Features
User-friendliness : Displays clear auto-test results with user-definable pass/fail criteria
Dual Ethernet ports : Enables Ethernet assessment in Terminate (single Ethernet port) and Pass Through (dual Ethernet) modes
IPTV analysis : Provides key IPTV qualification parameters with features such as set-top box (STB) emulation, join/leave requests, PCR jitter analysis and PID viewer
MDI reporting : Supports media delivery index (RFC 4445) for evaluating the IPTV quality of experience
VoIP analysis : Ensures VoIP services are not affected by packet loss or jitter
Data analysis : Offers a common set of measures such as ping, traceroute, HTTP speed testing and FTP speed testing to ensure reliable and consistent Internet conenctivity
Simplifying Residential IP Testing
A Highly Flexible, Future-Proof Test Solution
Residential IP service testing has never been so easy. Thanks to its dual-port Ethernet design, the AXS-200/650 can test in xPON, xDSL or any other IP environment (such as CATV environments). Any device equipped with an "Ethernet out" LAN port is within the realm of testing with the AXS-200/650, which creates countless possibilities for future applications. With the converged networks of today and tomorrow migrating towards 100% IP service, the AXS-200/650 is literally "future-proof".

Ethernet Terminate Mode
In Ethernet Terminate mode, the AXS-200/650 automatically synchronizes with 10Base-T or 100Base-T ports inside the customer premises, allowing data analysis (ping, traceroute, HTTP/FTP speed test) and IPTV STB emulation for join/leave requests.

In this configuration, the AXS-200/650 can be used in xDSL, xPON (FTTH) or Ethernet-fed deployments.

Assesses service delivery to the customer over most technologies
Helps determine if the PC's NIC card is faulty and validates the username/password
Helps determine if the STB is faulty by issuing IGMP joins/leaves
Ethernet Pass Through Mode
In Ethernet Pass Through mode, the AXS-200/650 automatically synchronizes with 10Base-T or 100Base-T ports inside the customer premises, allowing data analysis (ping, traceroute, HTTP/FTP speed test), Web surfing from a connected PC, IPTV STB emulation for join/leave requests, as well as VoIP analysis.

In this configuration, the AXS-200/650 can be used in xDSL, xPON (FTTH) or Ethernet-fed deployments.

Ensures the STB is correctly negotiating with the middleware
Assesses the quality of experience by monitoring IPTV joins/leaves, zap time, jitter and delay
Assesses VoIP call flow, jitter and delay
Simplifying Troubleshooting Operations
An Essential Tool for FTTH Service Providers and Contractors
The AXS-200/650 is the optimal tool for Ethernet-based FTTH service verification and triple-play testing. It helps telco and contractor personnel to quickly and easily identify the reason for IP triple-play deployment failure using automatic testing with customer-adjustable pass/fail criteria. In addition, network operators appreciate the AXS-200/650 as it eliminates the guesswork in hunting down quality-of-experience issues that might otherwise tie up valuable staff and company resources—a real CAPEX and OPEX saver.

IPTV and Triple-Play Deployments
EXFO's AXS-200/650 is the most cost-effective FTTH IP triple-play tester on the market. It offers comprehensive IPTV and VoIP testing over 10/100Base-T Ethernet to ensure a flawless customer experience.

Fingerpointing
The essence of the AXS-200/650 is to assist service providers in determining why the service is not working correctly. The AXS-200/650 provides ease of use and result interpretation for data services using measurement techniques such as ping, traceroute, HTTP and FTP speed testing. VoIP and IPTV applications are analyzed to determine the quality of service and, ultimately, the quality of experience offered to customers. All these features make the AXS-200/650 the preferred choice for verifying residential IP services.
