Service Providers

The LSX product family it is the only DSL Test & Simulation platform in the world that allows for programming the very own network infrastructure characteristics! Service Operators are using Sparnex Instruments for a very specific reason.
Other than classic DSL loopsimulators, the Sparnex Instruments solution can exactly reproduce the cable and the loops of any network.

Service Operators can run specific tests in addition to standard compliance testing in order to allow them to deploy better products suitable for their network as well as to better verify software and hardware upgrades of DSLAM and new modems according tests that mimic their very own network specific loops and noises.

It is possible to use the same Sparnex Instruments systems for all xDSL compliance and interoperability testing.

Sparnex Instruments' added valueS for Service Providers

There is no alternative for testing how hardware and software performs in the presence of specific hurdles in the access network and home, than simulating as accurately as possible the typical Physical Layer, which is unique for every country in the world. Such performance tests are not defined by Standard committees, since they are unique for every country and every network.

With Sparnex Instruments the Service Provider has the choice out of over 3000 local loop line types and unlimited local loop topologies as well as a database of 5 million different noise files collected over the years in 45 countries.

If information on the loop characteristics is unknown, Service Providers can sample their network with our xDSL specific analyzer - the ICXACT - or apply for Sparnex Instruments Services to characterize the network including local loop, in-home wiring and in-home transmission technology like wireless or cable.

The ultimate goal is to make typical test cases that represent the real world in a realistic and reproducible way, and to use these test suites as an in-house proprietary test case to find the better xDSL modem technology for the specific network of the Service Operator.

As such Sparnex Instruments is filling the gap between theoretical standard benchmark testing and testing real world performance to be expected in deployed networks.
