The lightweight, battery-powered TTC 2000 is engineered to excel and built to endure. With one-touch physical layer and services testing combined in a lightweight, handheld instrument, field technicians can sectionalise problems on the first visit and reduce service escalations. Touch-screen access to statistics for BERT, voice, CAS, PRI, and more give your technicians insight into protocol-based problems without having to carry or operate a protocol analyzer.

The graphical user interface (GUI) is based on a powerful combination of touch-screen software and a VGA-compatible grey-scale LCD. No test instrument has ever been this simple or elegantly durable. Testing is automatic - with the touch of an icon, technicians can have the information they need and be on their way to the next test site.

The unpredictability associated with field testing demands battery operation. Powered by a state-of-the-art nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) battery, the TTC 2000 goes wherever you need it. The battery is easily accessible - replace it as needed and resume testing in seconds.

The TTC 2000 utilises technology advances in low-power design, high-integration ASICs, and state-of-the-art memory and logic devices to minimise size and maximise battery life. Each battery charge delivers four hours of un-interrupted battery operation.

The JDSU FST-2310 TestPad is an all-in-one testing solution that performs SONET, SDH, T-carrier, data, and circuit-switched testing to meet the varied testing requirements of mobile technicians. Its modular architecture protects long-term investment by providing the flexibility, scalability, and upgradeability to support evolving test needs. Most tests performed using the FST-2310 can be done in only a few button pushes, without the need to sift through hidden setup menus. Additionally, because technicians need only minimal training to use the FST-2310, testing objectives are addressed quickly and the cost of ownership is significantly reduced.

Test application buttons are labeled with icons that clearly depict the way the test is performed on the circuit; for example, select the “MON/THRU” icon when performing circuit-monitoring tests – select the “TERM” icon when performing circuit-terminating tests. The icons and quick setup buttons enable technicians to use the module effectively with very little training.

Identify the source of problems quickly by using the FST-2310’s dual results window to analyze results from different signal rates simultaneously. Simultaneous results analysis can also be performed on different signal results (for example, level and bit errors) allowing for easy results correlation and quick problem identification.

Support for autoconfiguration is provided for all key applications. Autoconfiguration is capable of setting different test parameters, such as framing and pattern, as well as detecting the signal’s multiplexed composition. This enables users to reduce the time required for test setup. Additionally, the FST-2310 has the ability to save and store up to 10 test set configurations that can be recalled for future use.

The FST-2310 TestPad SONET Services Module is the ideal telecommunications solution for testing OC-48/12/3, STM-16c/4c/1, STS-1,and DS3/1. The FST-2310 is optimized for field use because it is portable and easy-to-use. As a member of the Acterna TestPad 2000 family of products, the FST-2310 has a touch screen user interface that simplifies test setup and reduces test configuration time. The “smart tester” icon-driven interface is easy to learn, and the large display screen provides ample space for viewing test results.

Remotely configure tests and analyze results in detail using the remote control GUI option. This allows technicians to conveniently operate the module from a remote location using the FST-2310’s graphical user interface (GUI) on a remote PC. The remote control GUI feature enables technicians to connect to the FST-2310 through the PCMCIA serial or modem card to perform tests and collect test results.

Jitter analysis option for DS1 and DS3 configurations—The jitter analysis option allows you to detect jitter hits in highband and wideband ranges on received DS1 and DS3 signals. You can specify positive and negative thresholds for detecting jitter hits. Jitter results also include peak-to-peak measurements, expressed in UIpp (unit intervals peak-to-peak); count of jitter hits; jitter percent mask; and the maximum positive and negative jitter peaks.
