With the goal of speeding deployment of IPTV services delivered over Fiber to the Node (FTTN) systems, Sunrise Telecom has released its Home Test Toolkit (HTT) test set, specifically designed to facilitate the deployment of next-generation triple play services.
"Sunrise Telecom's new HTT will make a substantial difference in our customer's ability to rapidly scale IPTV and other advanced services deployment," contends Robert Heintz, vice president of North American sales for Sunrise Telecom. "We're excited that the HTT has already been selected by a Tier 1 telephone service provider, because it significantly speeds up installation times and ensures that consumers receive the highest performing, most reliable IP services available."
Sunrise says the HTT provides customers with a test tool specifically tailored to mass-market FTTN deployment, integrating a range of test functions needed for in-home testing, allowing technicians to test key interfaces and signals at the customer location during installation. The company says the HTT's ability to integrate with customers' back office systems allows results from each installation to be recorded accurately for analysis and quality control.
With more than ten integrated FTTN test functions, the company says its HTT test set ensures timely delivery of IPTV and other network services. According to the company, the unit provides automatic "go-no-go" test routines for VDSL, Home Phoneline Networking Alliance (HPNA) networks, RF video, Ethernet, 802.11x wireless, copper loop fault identification, POTS (plain old telephone service) testing, and in-house wiring identification and testing. The HTT can upload detailed results of an installation test via Ethernet or wireless Bluetooth interfaces; the lightweight unit is powered by a rechargeable, field replaceable smart battery system.
