JDSU has added a 30MHz (VDSL2) copper test option, available as a field upgrade to existing units, to the HST-3000 handheld triple-play services tester.
Specifically designed to meet the test needs of field technicians who install and maintain VDSL access networks, the HST-3000 now enables the deployment of higher bit-rate triple play services, including IPTV and HDTV. The HST-3000 is also designed to address the challenges of deploying VDSL, typically the “last mile” technology in FTTx networks, across copper networks.
The JDSU HST-3000 meets the test applications required by field technicians responsible for access network service installation and maintenance. It is designed to provide maximum flexibility, through software options and field swappable service interface modules to meet specific work group needs. The HST-3000 can be upgraded as technology evolves.
