JDSU has included a new functionality to the HST-3000 handheld DSL test unit, which includes Infineon Technologies' VDSL service interface module (SIM). The VSDL SIM uses Infineon's chipset and a licensed option for Dr. DSL diagnostic solutions from Aware, Inc. Both new features provide additional testing power for field technicians who install and maintain access networks and high-bit-rate triple-play services, including IPTV and HDTV.

The JDSU HST-3000 is a modular, handheld test tool that scales to address a broad spectrum of different access network technology testing needs, from the physical layer to the application layer. HST-3000 capabilities allow packet capture of live VoIP calls, including VoIP call storage and an integrated FTP capability to send captured VoIP calls to be analyzed by JDSU's PVA-1000 software. The tester combines copper, voice and data service testing features with process automation capabilities in a lightweight, battery-operated unit.

Using the HST-3000 Infineon VSDL SIM, technicians are able to test across VDSL and ADSL/ADSL2+, including Ikanos, Accelity, and Broadcom VDSL 2 chipsets. The HST-3000 with Dr. DSL enables technicians to perform far-end and in-home physical layer loop diagnostics, DSLAM and customer premises modem emulation, ATM layer testing, and end-to-end IP connectivity.

By adding ADSL2+, VDSL and IPTV test options, the HST-3000 provides a comprehensive portable test solution for triple-play service deployments and extends its capabilities for installation and maintenance crews who are responsible for the turn-up and troubleshooting of these new services.
