AuroraDuet ISDN Test Equipment ISDN Hand-held testing for Basic & Primary Rate ISDN The AuroraDuet is the total simplest of line installations yet solution to problem issues sophisticated enough to be used associated with the operation of in a laboratory to validate the the ISDN. Available as a Basic operation of new developments. Rate or combined Basic and Primary Rate test instrument, the AuroraDuet provides a complete range of test functions from the very basic to the very advanced. With this instrument, the engineer can maintain the integrity of the ISDN circuits and equipment under his control at any time. This hand-held unit is an ideal instrument for the field The extensive functionality of the service tests to save time. The AuroraDuet makes it ideal for unit’s size and design means all applications that engineers in that virtually any location where the field can experience. Much it is possible to install ISDN thought has gone into the actual equipment is accessible to an operating requirements of the engineer with an AuroraDuet, tester. The logically constructed including areas of poor light menus for configuration and quality. The AuroraDuet is operation are supplemented by also capable of being totally single key selections for controlled remotely by an commonly needed functions and engineer using a PC connected engineer dealing with the directly to the tester or across the PSTN. The AuroraDuet is a key asset AuroraDuet to all business activities involving The total solution to ISDN testing make extensive use of the U ISDN. Service providers can interface and V5 monitoring capabilities. Organisations concerned with the commissioning and installation of ISDN equipment can profit from the simulation capability. Companies involved with maintenance and troubleshooting will find the monitoring and analysis functionality invaluable. Manufacturers of ISDN equipment can use the AuroraDuet as a Quality assessment tool, and users of ISDN services can ensure that the services are as expected and as an arbitration tool between different suppliers in their ISDN environment. What are the key testing applications? Simulation Physical layer 1 testing and The AuroraDuet can monitoring using LEDs and simulate on the Basic Rate ‘S/T’ Screen gives indication of or ‘U’ reference points allowing a Remote Alarm, CRC Error, Sync loopback commands and on the Physical layer testing and Link Quality assessment Primary Rate interface in TE or When a call fails or call set-up NT mode, either directly on the problems exist it is essential to Selective BERT capability for exchange or at customer have an instant readout of the both Basic and Primary Rate premises. physical layer quality indicators circuits, including Nx64k multi to help isolate customer channel equipment problems. The 2MB framed and unframed BERT AuroraDuet offers ‘hotkey’ capability for PCM circuit testing full combination of TE, NT and LT modes including EOC Multi-channel simulation: Phantom power for NT1, S-bus devices as well as power feed to Up0 interface Alarm, Signal Detect, AIS, Activation, Info states and a number of other key indicators. access to view instantly G.703 and G.704 error counts and messages when in monitor or B1, B2, Bx channel selection in simulation test modes.
