The MaxTester 610 Copper Test Set and MaxTester 635 Copper, DSL and Multiplay Test Set are the newest additions to EXFO’s copper access test offering.

The new test sets are aimed at service providers that want to deploy the latest ADSL2+ and VDSL2 technology. Now available on the handheld MaxTester units, these next-gen copper/DSL test functionalities also will be offered in the fourth quarter on two new copper access modules.

“Telecom service providers are continuously faced with the issue of remaining competitive in delivering broadband to subscribers. FTTH is still quite expensive to install, so reusing copper and maximizing its potential is what the new DSL technologies enable,” EXFO says. “Previously available installation testers lacked the wideband capabilities necessary for testing VDSL2 circuits. Perfectly aligned with the new technologies, the MaxTester series bridges this gap, addressing the needs of installers to more quickly identify and interpret circuit troubles and restore service.”

The MaxTester 610 and 635 provide fault-location capabilities (TDR, RFL) and 30-megahertz wideband copper testing in support of ADSL2+ and VDSL2 technologies. Featuring an integrated ADSL2+/VDSL2 modem, the MAX-635 supports bonding, vectoring and G.INP, which EXFO says are the latest DSL technologies to extend the reach and rate of DSL, using two pairs to deliver high-speed multiplay services over longer distances and/or at higher data rates.

The units also include the SmartR test suite that automatically runs key copper tests and analyzes the results to help technicians identify and locate faults.
