This is the module only. It needs to be attached to a JDSU/Acterna 2000 to operate.

   With the JDSU/Acterna TestPad 2000 DSL Broadband Services Module, tier one, tier two, and tier three service technicians can efficiently and effectively commission,  troubleshoot, and maintain DSL service across the entire provider network. Rugged, lightweight, and compact, the DSL Module is designed for highly mobile technicians who must test wherever the network goes. Its intuitive GUI and a reduced-glare touch screen make it easy for technicians to operate and view testing results. Combined with the JDSU/Acterna TestPad 2000 Copper Analyzer Module, the DSL Module provides a complete solution for DSL service commissioning on the local loop. And for further network testing, the DSL Module, when used in conjunction with the JDSU/Acterna TestPad 2000 SONET Field Services Module, validates DSLAM mappings.To commission a customer's DSL service, a provider must ensure that all aspects of the connection are functioning, from the CPE through the network and to the ISP. Failure of any transport, network, or service layer function (protocol) may cause the service to fail. It is not enough to check synchronization at the network interface device (NID) and assume the service is okay. The DSL Module tests the customer's entire service, not just DSL sync, which eliminates the need for a technician to return at another time to troubleshoot the network connection and CPE.

   DSL provides a high-speed link between the provider's high-speed network and the customer's CPE. Although the network is able to support high-speed digital services, such as DSL, dial-up modem service has traditionally caused a bottleneck on the local loop. Since DSL promotes the use of high-speed services and applications, it is critical to maintain and verify DSL operation and rates over the local loop. The DSL Module lets technicians quickly and easily confirm DSL physical layer performance by emulating DSL transceiver unit modems. In this mode, the DSL Module verifies the actual DSL rate for the current connection and the connection's maximum possible rate. It checks the signal-to-noise margin to evaluate the DSL signal strength over the loop, pointing to future performance capabilities or limitations. Technicians can synchronize the DSL Module at different points on the loop to segment faults on the copper loop.

   The 2357's DSL Module's data rate and line rate results verify slow service. By looking at the 'bits per tone' measurement and graphics, technicians can determine if the disturbers are from sources transmitting T1, E1, or HDSL and take corrective action. In addition, the DSL Module indicates excessive noise margins, which identify the presence of crosstalk.
