AXS-200/650 IP Triple-Play Test Set


AXS-200/650 IP Triple-Play Test Set

VDSL2 and ADSL2+ Triple-Play Services Testing

Get VDSL2 and ADSL1/2/2+ interoperability and backward-compatibility in a single test set thanks to EXFO’s AXS-200/630 module for the AXS-200 SharpTESTER. Featuring the industry-leading Broadcom chipset, the AXS-200/630 provides you with a wide range of measurements so that no matter what stage of DSL deployment you are at—prequalification, installation, troubleshooting or repair—you have all the measurement tools you need to get the job done efficiently and properly.

Part of the SharpTESTER Access Line, the AXS-200/630’s bright color LCD display provides a sharp graphical user interface for showing clear results (including graphs), making it a straightforward, user-friendly test solution, perfect for triple-play services analysis. Designed for real-life testing conditions, the AXS-200/630’s display is ideally suited for use in direct sunlight thanks to its transflective color display.

Simplifying IP Triple-play Testing

EXFO’s AXS-200/650 IP Triple-Play Test Set offers a quick, yet thorough method for deploying triple-play services (IP-based VoIP and IPTV) facilitated by pass/fail-driven automated tests.

The AXS-200/650 delivers advanced IPTV measurements—packet jitter, packet loss, PCR jitter, MDI, PID viewer and IGMP zap time—both in Terminate (stand-alone) and Through mode operation. The AXS-200/650 also monitors residential VoIP call flow and statistics, facilitating VoIP QoS assurance.

Simplifying residential IP Testing

A Highly Flexible, Future-Proof Test Solution

Residential IP service testing has never been so easy. Thanks to its dual-port Ethernet design, the AXS-200/650 can test in xPON, xDSL or any other IP environment (such as CATV environments). Any device equipped with an “Ethernet out” LAN port is within the realm of testing with the AXS-200/650, which creates countless possibilities for future applications. With the migration from today’s converged networks to 100% IP service, the AXS-200/650 is literally “future-proof”.

Ethernet Terminate Mode

In Ethernet Terminate mode, the AXS-200/650 automatically synchronizes with 10Base-T or 100Base-T ports inside the customer premises, allowing data analysis (ping, traceroute, HTTP/FTP speed test) and IPTV STB emulation for join/leave requests.

In this configuration, the AXS-200/650 can be used in xDSL, xPON (FTTH) or Ethernet-fed deployments.

  • Assesses service delivery to the customer over most technologies
  • Helps determine if the PC’s NIC card is faulty and validates the username/password
  • Helps determine if the STB is faulty by issuing IGMP joins/leaves

Ethernet Pass Through Mode

In Ethernet Pass Through mode, the AXS-200/650 automatically synchronizes with 10Base-T or 100Base-T ports inside the customer premises, allowing data analysis (ping, traceroute, HTTP/FTP speed test), web surfing from a connected PC, IPTV STB emulation for join/leave requests, as well as VoIP analysis.

In this configuration, the AXS-200/650 can be used in xDSL, xPON (FTTH) or Ethernet-fed deployments.

  • Ensures the STB is correctly negotiating with the middleware
  • Assesses the quality of experience by monitoring IPTV joins/leaves, zap time, jitter and delay
  • Assesses VoIP call fl ow, jitter and delay

Simplifying Troubleshooting Operations

An Essential Tool for FTTH Service Providers and Contractors

The AXS-200/650 is the optimal tool for Ethernet-based FTTH service verification and triple-play testing. It helps telco and contractor personnel to quickly and easily identify the reason for IP triple-play deployment failure using automatic testing with customer-adjustable pass/fail criteria. In addition, network operators appreciate the AXS-200/650, as it eliminates the guesswork in hunting down quality-of-experience issues that might otherwise tie up valuable staff and company resources—a real CAPEX and OPEX saver.

IPTV and Triple-Play Deployments

EXFO’s AXS-200/650 is the most cost-effective FTTH IP triple-play tester on the market. It offers comprehensive IPTV and VoIP testing over 10/100Base-T Ethernet to ensure a flawless customer experience.

Fingerpointing

The essence of the AXS-200/650 is to assist service providers in determining why the service is not working correctly. The AXS-200/650 provides ease of use and result interpretation for data services using measurement techniques such as ping, traceroute, HTTP and FTP speed testing. VoIP and IPTV applications are analyzed to determine the quality of service and, ultimately, the quality of experience offered to customers. All these features make the AXS-200/650 the preferred choice for verifying residential IP services.
