Exfo has configured its MaxTester DSL with a broadband test suite specifically designed for installing and testing triple-play services.
The new test suite has interfaces for VDSL2, several versions of ADSL (1, 2, and 2+) and Ethernet. Options include an IPTV test suite and a Web browser.
The data tests provide traceroute and FTP capabilities, allowing technicians to automatically perform actual upload/download speed measurements of a link to ensure that services are properly provisioned.
With the new IPTV test suite, technicians can save their most commonly used channels to automatically join the selected channels and verify their availability as well as their quality of service (QoS), Exfo said.
The Web browser can also be used not only to access internal technician sites for additional testing or job management, but also to demonstrate basic web connectivity.
