   The field-portable Agilent/HP E4480A CERJAC 156MTS combines SONET, ATM and T-carrier test for installation, qualification, and maintenance test from DS0 to OC-12. The instrument provides a wide array of options to support evolving network measurement needs. Operating Modes The E4480A 156MTS provides three test modes to meet the needs of test applications such as installation (out-of-service) testing, facility testing (in-service), and channel access (drop and insert) testing.

Terminal mode

  • Transmitter and receiver are fully independent.
  • Different line rates can be set up on the transmit and receive sides to facilitate multiplexer testing and end-to-end, out-of-service testing.

Monitor mode

  • Pass-through or input-only monitoring for non-intrusive, in-service testing.
  • Transmit controls and overhead access are locked out to prevent accidental intrusion on the service.

Drop & Insert mode

  • Pass-through monitoring with access to individual tributary payloads for monitoring and inserting test patterns and errors.
  • Useful for both in-service and out-of-service applications. Error Injection
  • Many different types of errors available for each signal type.
  • Single, continuous rate, or burst injection.
  • Injection controlled by front-panel key or rear-panel external signal.

Pointer adjustment

  • Inserts positive or negative pointer adjustments or new data flag events. DS1 Drop Scan
  • Checks each DS1 signal for AIS, frame, and pattern. Signaling Scan
  • Displays ABCD signaling bits for each DS0 channel. Automatic Configuration One-key operation bypasses the setup screens and automatically configures the instrument to match the input signal. Remote Control Control of the instrument is available through one of the rear-panel remote interfaces. Remote Front Panel
  • Remote operation using a front-panel emulator on a terminal or PC. Modem Control
  • For modem applications, a general purpose modem can be used. IEEE-488
