   The HST-3000 DS3 test option enables users to perform the test operations necessary to install, maintain, and troubleshoot DS3 circuits and DS1 channels within DS3 circuits. Test operations in the HST-3000 include in-service monitoring, bit error rate testing (BERT), and loopback testing. Technicians can quickly qualify networks for accurate multiplexed operation by performing BER testing on one or all DS1 channels transmitted by a DS3 multiplexer. Explosive growth in demand for high-bandwidth applications and services is driving increased deployment of DS3 in today's network, both as a transport technology and as a service offering leading to an increased need for test solutions that ensure the proper installation and maintenance of DS3 service. Technicians traditionally responsible for T1 and lower speed service installation and maintenance are now being tasked to take on DS3 testing responsibilities. This, coupled with today's smaller workforces and reduced budgets for equipment and training, presents a real challenge to service providers who must ensure that the service provisioning and trouble correction is done right the first time out.

Features

  • Reduce DS3 circuit testing time by using dual receivers for bi-directional monitoring, allowing for timely trouble isolation and correction
  • Seamlessly transition from testing the DS3 interface to testing at the T1 tributary without swapping modules or test sets via the standard dual
  • Transmit and receive DS1 interface
  • Verify multiplexed operation by performing BER testing on one or all 28 DS1 channels within the DS3
  • Accurately measure frequency and signal level to ensure optimal DS3 circuit performance
  • Compact, lightweight and scalable tool ideal for the needs of the field technician today

   Testing may be performed to a loop at the far-end cross connect-panel or straight away with another test set located at the far-end to sectionalize potential problems. For circuits with C-Bit framing, the HST-3000 can send DS3 FEAC loop commands and report FEAC alarms. For multiplexed DS3 testing, BERT patterns can be inserted on a single channel or all 28 DS1 channels within the DS3. Other standard features include error insertion to verify continuity, and alarm generation to verify proper network provisioning. Easy-to-read result menus allow technicians to view physical layer measurements, BERT results, parity errors, FEBEs and alarm conditions. The summary screen also provides a rapid assessment of overall test performance.
