Sunrise Introduces Home Network Triple Play Readiness Assessment Test

Sunrise Telecom introduced a portable handheld test set designed to speed accurate verification of home networks for triple play deployments.

Field technicians can use the test set for various home network configurations, including Ethernet, WiFi, HomePNA and home wiring. Key tests include:

  • Home Wiring Testing -- identifies shorts, grounds and cable terminations, checks cable loss, verifies POTS voltage and places calls

  • HomePNA Analysis -- validates HomePNA copper and coaxial connectivity and performance for the entire HPNA network by measuring Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR), throughput and packet loss

  • WiFi -- verifies signal strength, channel conflicts and provides a list of available channels

  • Ethernet Verification -- provides link status and speed to ensure connectivity
