August 30, 2007 -- Sunrise Telecom has released its SunSet MTT ACM II modular test set, a system designed to qualify the copper pair for access networks and to complete service verifications for a variety of applications. The system's ability to test outside plant copper pairs for multiple types of DSL (VDSL2, ADSL2+, ADSL) within a single test set makes it a crucial instrument for deploying next-generation networks, contends the company.
"As consumers embrace new forms of communication and entertainment, triple play networks will be increasingly relied upon to support the abundance of multimedia applications," comments Yumi Kato, product marketing manager, Telecom Products Group, for Sunrise Telecom. "The versatility of the ACM II not only gives technicians the tools they need to deploy next-generation networks, but it ensures that services will work at some of the industry's highest levels of performance."
According to the company, the ACM II equips the network service provider to effectively deploy today's triple play network with the following highlights: range from voiceband to 30 MHz for VDSL2 for key measurements such as PSD noise and loss; dual trace TDR, RFL, and DMM for cable fault identification and location; and standardized POTS tests common to industry methods and procedures, including longitudinal balance, power influence, and powerline harmonic analysis.
The modular SunSet MTT ACM II also allows customers to utilize the company's extensive library of MTT service modules addressing DSL, IPTV, metro, and transport applications. The company says that these comprehensive features make the ACM II ideal for local loop exchange carriers as they test copper carriers to troubleshoot and qualify access networks during construction, installation, provisioning and maintenance.
