TraceSpan's VDSL Xpert(TM) Analyzer Supports G.Vector
RA'ANANA, Israel, March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
TraceSpan Communications, a leader in broadband analysis and monitoring solutions, announced today the release of Self-FEXT Cancellation (G.Vector) module for its VDSL Xpert™ analyzer.
Self-FEXT Cancellation, also known as G.Vector, is standardized in the ITU-T G.993.5 recommendation, and allows significant rate improvements of VDSL lines by cancellation of far-end crosstalk (FEXT) among signals from pairs in a bundle.
The VDSL Xpert™ multi-layer analyzer provides a complete and accurate analysis of VDSL2 product performance and interoperability with no affect of the data transfer between the transceivers. Now, with its new G.Vector capability, VDSL Xpert™ allows its users to validate the performance improvement achieved by G.Vector, verify G.993.5 compliance of their VDSL2 equipment and chipsets, find and analyze problems related to G.Vector prior to their field deployment, and troubleshoot such problems on live networks in the field.
The latest VDSL Xpert™ version also adds new capabilities for troubleshooting issues related to multi-pair bonding, which is another key factor in extending service rate and reach over copper lines.
"Extending data rates on the copper infrastructure is a key success factor for today's telecom operators, and G.Vector is one of the means to achieve this," said Dr. Hanan Herzberg, TraceSpan founder and CEO. "VDSL Xpert™ can now help our customers maximize the performance of their copper lines by troubleshooting G.Vector-related problems quickly and easily, thus assuring service reliability and customer satisfaction."
With its unique multi-layer probing capability, VDSL Xpert™ provides comprehensive analysis with various outputs - from analog samples to bits and messages. In addition, it extracts the upper layers cells and packets and provides data, signaling and warnings of incompatibility with the various protocols. The supported protocols range from PTM, through network layer protocols such as IP and IGMP, and up to application layer protocols such as HTTP. VDSL Xpert™ simultaneously presents downstream and upstream data and the connection between the two. Its feature-rich GUI presents multi-layer information in convenient displays, and also allows automatic generation of exportable reports.
