Fast Validation of Ultra-Broadband Deployments

EXFO’s MaxTester 630G (MAX-630G) is the perfect tool for any service provider deploying (ITU-T G Series 9700 and 9701 recommendations for fast access to subscriber terminals) in FTTdp or MDU deployments. For service providers considering as a future play for their FTTx broadband deployments, the MAX-630G offers key features today, including: VDSL2 35b, vectoring enabled VDSL2, VDSL2 bonding and ADSL2+ and, single pair and bonded pair capability. Field upgradeable software offers the ability to upgrade to in seconds.

The MAX-630G’s small form factor, rugged design and easy-to-use menu make it the ideal tool for installation and repair technicians. The large touchscreen display makes it intuitive and user friendly. With the MAX-630G, the testing process is highly automated and technicians can close their jobs quickly and efficiently thanks to clear pass/fail test result conclusions. When it comes to saving results, it provides technicians with many connectivity options for uploading tests and compiling reports.

Multiplay Performance Mandate

Ultra-broadband and enhanced VDSL2 variants (such as new VDSL2 35b deployments) are driven by subscriber requirements for flawless IPTV and over-the-top (OTT) video, high speed downloads and uploads, social networking push and pulls, and online gaming (e.g., MMORPG), to name a few. The MAX-630G allows technicians to connect subscriber equipment (e.g., a PC, STB or gaming console) to the its LAN port to transfer data at speeds up to 1000 Mbit/s.

Noise Mitigation Features

Ensuring that the highest quality multiplay services are delivered to subscribers is critical for service providers deploying ultra-fast broadband connectivity. With an aging copper plant and the need to maximize the use of all pairs in the cable bundle, it is imperative that the appropriate mechanisms are in place to mitigate the impact of noise. Noise is a key contributor to negative multiplay feedback from subscribers. The MAX-630G supports INP (impulse noise protection), G.INP (impulse noise protection and physical-layer retransmission as defined by ITU-T G.998.4) and vectoring (ITU-T G.993.5) plus a complete set of SELT measurements for attenuation, noise and SNR per tone analysis up to 106 MHz. These techniques are supported by the MAX-630G to ensure consistency with service providers’ noise mitigation methods and procedures.

All the Right Features for Installation Technicians

With its small form factor, the MAX-630G can go anywhere the technician does. It is rugged, lightweight and protected from the rain—just what is needed for the demanding outside-plant environment. The user interface was designed with simplicity and efficiency in mind. The large touchscreen display features colored icons and graphics for easy configuration and operation, and is simple to use for both experienced and novice technicians.

Automated Service Testing

Customizable profiling makes testing ultra-broadband circuits with the MAX-630G easy. Run routine jobs or setup custom profiles for special projects. Test profiles can easily be transferred between units using a USB or EXFO Connect, ensuring that all technicians from the same organization are testing to the same specifications. In addition, the MAX-630G boasts customizable thresholds allowing all technicians to visualize pass or failed conditions so they can quickly move on to the next job or investigate further.

Data-Mining of Results

In today’s highly competitive network service provider environment, delivering exceptional quality of service to subscribers is paramount. With EXFO Connect and EXFO Sync combined with the MAX-630G, service providers can manage their fleet of MaxTester units and ensure that they have the most up-to-date software installed and properly configured. Combining these solutions with the MAX-630G makes it possible for service providers to have test results on hand for data mining and post-analytics purposes, enabling them to proactively manage loop plants and ensure that they are of the highest quality.
