FEATURES
Introduction
T
he TTC® T-BERD® 209OSP meets the exclusive testing requirements of the outside plant technician.
Combining T1/ISDN/DDS/HDSL BERT, TDR, and DVOM, the T-BERD 209OSP is a complete tool for
qualifying and troubleshooting digital loops. By adding optional FT1 support, pre-programmed intelligent
equipment commands, and HDSL loop qualification, you have the most flexible, all-in-one solution for outside
plant testing.

and resistive shorts. Distance to fault is displayed in feet.
• Automated Testing
Qualify T1 spans at the push of a button with AUTOTEST, automated MULTIPAT™ and BRIDGTAP™ stress
patterns, and automatic receiver configuration.
• Repeater Adapter

spans without the use of several cumbersome
cables.
• Graphical Display
Control test access with the push of a button. View
graphical TDR response to verify cable
impairments.
• Flash Memory
