JDSU Enhances its DSL Field Tester with VDSL

JDSU has enhanced its HST-3000 handheld DSL test unit with a new VDSL service interface module (SIM) using an Infineon Technologies chipset and a licensed option for Dr. DSL diagnostic solutions from Aware. Both new features provide additional testing power for field technicians who install and maintain access networks and high bit-rate triple-play services, including IPTV and HDTV.

Using the HST-3000 Infineon VSDL SIM, technicians are able to test across VDSL and ADSL/ADSL2+, including Ikanos, Accelity, and Broadcom VDSL 2 chipsets. The HST-3000 with Dr. DSL enables technicians to perform far-end and in-home physical layer loop diagnostics, DSLAM and customer premises modem emulation, ATM layer testing, and end-to-end IP connectivity.http://www.jdsu.com
