DS1 physical layer testing

   Whether provisioning or troubleshooting T1 service, the first step is to verify proper circuit operation throughout the networkby testing the physical layer. Typical requirements include BER testing and signal, alarm, and timing tests to ensure proper performance of T1 network connections. BER testing is typically conducted from the customer premises at an NIU or HTU-R. To identify and sectionalize circuit problems from network equipment faults, the FST-2209 monitors and performs BER testing in both directions of a circuit simultaneously. The use of standard or user-programmable loop codes to loopback network equipment allows technicians to further sectionalize network troubles. In addition to commonly used BER patterns such as QRSS, the test instrument also offers several industry-recommended, advanced stress patterns, including 55 octet and T1-DALY to ensure network performance.
