Telebyte, a US-based xDSL test equipment solution provider, has announced the opening of its G.vector Test Laboratory.
The lab, co-located at and operated by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), will use Telebyte's suite of VDSL2 Vectoring test equipment and UNH-IOL expertise to provide testing per the Broadband Forum's WT-249/TR-249 standard and beyond.
VDSL2 vectoring boasts speeds of up to 100 Mbps and continues to gain popularity as service providers consider the competitive advantages of employing a technology that utilises their existing copper network to provide next generation high speed internet services. VDSL2 vectoring is cost efficient and will accelerate companies' superfast broadband.
The Telebyte G.vector Test Laboratory aims to streamline the testing processes and help service providers and equipment vendors ensure that their technology is ready for deployment. Using the experience and knowledge of the UNH-IOL, the Telebyte G.vector Test Laboratory will provide both interoperability and performance testing services to service providers and equipment vendors.
Lincoln Lavoie, senior engineer for the UNH-IOL commented on the launch of the lab: "The UNH-IOL is very excited about this new opportunity to collaborate with the broadband industry and service providers on the G.vector testing. Over the past 15 years, we've worked with the industry to support DSL development from first generation ADSL to VDSL2, and now G.vector; helping to bring new speeds and features to the technologies."
The Telebyte G.vector Test Laboratory is operated in an independent, state-of-the-art facility for testing of VDSL2 vectoring devices per the Broadband Forum's WT-249/TR-249 standard through annual contracts or services on a pay-per-test basis.
Michael Breneisen, president of Telebyte said: "As VDSL2 Vectoring continues to evolve, so do our product and service offerings. We are now positioned to partner with Service Providers and vendors on multiple levels, whether it's supplying equipment, or testing services in our lab."
