ADSL2+ Triple Play Module (Annex A)

ADSL2+ Triple Play Module (Annex A)

EXFO's AXS-200/620 ADSL2+ Triple-Play Test Set offers a quick, yet thorough method for deploying triple-play services—ADSL1/2/2+ and Ethernet-based data, VoIP and IPTV testing—facilitated by pass/fail-driven automated tests.

In addition to validating connectivity to the DSLAM, the AXS-200/620 provides upstream and downstream parameters such as actual data rates, attenuation and noise margin. What’s more, it 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-200/620 also monitors residential VoIP call flow and statistics, facilitating VoIP QoS assurance.

Applications

  • ADSL2+ service verification
  • IPTV and VoIP testing over ADSL2+ and 10/100 Mbit/s Ethernet
  • IPTV QoE testing using MDI

Key Features and Benefits

  • Simple, affordable triple-play testing over ADSL1/2/2+ and Ethernet 10/100
  • ADSL1/2/2+ service testing at the customer premises, a remote location or the central office
  • IPTV service assurance using a comprehensive range of QoS metrics
  • Unparalleled ease of use for VoIP QoS assurance
  • IP layer testing: connectivity consistency assessment using ping, traceroute, HTTP and FTP Web speed testing
  • Pass/fail-based auto-testing capability
