LSX 2030 EP (V)

xDSL Line/Loop and Noise Simulator Platform

The LSX 2030 is a single hardware platform that can be used as an MA version or as an EP version.
The LSX 2030 EP is the Engineering & Performance version of the LSX 2030 Line Simulator.

ABOUT THE LSX 2030 EP

All xDSL testing jobs can be done with the same platform.  This single system has the ability to simulate any loop, whether defined by Standards-based, User-defined or Field-based characteristics.  The LSX 2030 EP has the unique ability to support modem Conformance testing as well as Performance ranking.  It can accurately rank modem technologies, according to real world loop characteristics, which are country and network specific.

Sparnex has a database of libraries, containing over 3000 loop characteristics, collected over the last 30 years.  The fully programmable hardware of the LSX 2030 EP permits the user to reproduce any environment and upcoming evolutions of current DSL technologies, making it a future-proof and unique solution compared to traditional Loop Simulators.

The LSX 2030 can be applied to develop technology improvements, thanks to its unmatched accuracy, flexibility and repeatability.

It turns the classic DSL Test Lab into a real sophisticated test environment, providing representative trouble testing capabilities, combined with exchangeable test profiles that can be reproduced anywhere in the world, thanks to the single hardware platform LSX 2030 EP.

Optionally, the fully programmable Arbitrary Noise Impairment Generator (ANG) can be integrated in the system or can be provided as a standalone unit: ANG 2005 or ANG 2030.

KEY INSTRUMENT FUNCTIONALITIES
