CeBIT 2012: Test Gigabit Ethernet, ADSL, VDSL and SHDSL Now With Just one Device
LUEDENSCHEID, Germany, February 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Hall 13, booth D58
The new ARGUS 165 xDSL + GigE combi tester from intec is the first test device that
can simultaneously test all important broadband interfaces using copper and fiber
Luedenscheid, March 2012 – with the ARGUS 165, intec will present the latest
generation of combi testers at this year’s CeBIT: The xDSL + GigE combi tester not only
combines all standard broadband interfaces (ADSL, VDSL, SHDSL) with comprehensive Triple
Play test functions – it also has a fixed 1000Base-T (RJ45) and two variable copper or
fiber GigE interfaces using SFP slots. Triple Play or performance tests can, for example,
be carried out directly on GPON modems or GigE switches. All interfaces and functions are
integrated in a compact universal device in order to ensure fast start-up and switching
times – and all without having to change modules.
In combination with the abovementioned xDSL interfaces, the ARGUS 165 offers the
option of being able to use two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces simultaneously (Dual GigE). It
is therefore not necessary to use another device for end-to-end tests. Using a loop
function and a traffic generator, the user can analyze the capacity of Ethernet cables or
devices at full performance (1 Gbit/s). Ethernet cabling tests and throughput tests in
accordance with RFC 2544 will be also possible in this way.
For HTTP and FTP downloads the interfaces can even reach speeds of up to 200 Mbit/s.
With its Triple Play test functions, the ARGUS 165 can also test VoIP, IPTV and data
services via xDSL and Gigabit Ethernet. IP tests can also be performed via the new more
powerful IPv6 protocol. Using the line monitor and the optional Active Probe II,
high-ohmic measurements are even possible without interference on an existing DSL
In addition to the ARGUS 165, intec will also be presenting further current models
from the ARGUS range, such as the ARGUS 145 plus. The handheld tester and analyzer
combines the following interfaces: VDSL2 (all profiles), ADSL (Annex A, B, J, L, M) as
well as SHDSL (2-, 4-, 8-wire), ISDN PRI/E1/BRI S/T/U and POTS and many other new
functions and is now also available with a Gigabit Ethernet interface, if desired.
The intec experts will be available at CeBIT (hall 13, booth D58) to demonstrate
devices and answer questions.
