New functions include an integrated Web browser for ease-of-use and verification of on-site subscriber website access; copper tests that are field tested and proven, including CableCheck and balance tests that provide one-button, pass/fail copper verification; a Broadcast Auto feature that simplifies IPTV testing and automatically detects IP stream formats; and a Packet Capture feature that enables technicians to capture data for offline analysis in the back office.
"JDSU continues to provide the market with the broadest range of triple play test options that address the full range of requirements for today's network installer," said Jim Nerschook, vice president and general manager in JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment.
