FEBRUARY 29, 2008 -- Sunrise Telecom Inc. (search for Sunrise Telecom) announces the GTT, an all-in-one portable, handheld test set designed to speed accurate verification of home networks for triple-play deployments.

The GTT includes predictive next-step logic, making it usable by both trained technicians seeking in-depth analysis and less skilled users who can rely on step-by-step instructions to guide them through the troubleshooting process. The intuitive menu and simple to follow automatic "go-no-go" test routines reduce technician training time, increase effectiveness, and expedite precise installations, says the company.

The unit verifies networks, tests wiring and cables, validates connectivity, tests Wi-Fi signal strength, and generates reports detailing the results of each installation, which can be uploaded for future analysis.

The GTT includes:

  • Home Wiring Testing -- identifies shorts, grounds, and cable terminations; checks cable loss; verifies POTS voltage; and places calls.
  • HomePNA Analysis -- validates HomePNA copper and coaxial connectivity and performance for the entire HPNA network by measuring signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), throughput, and packet loss.
  • Wi-Fi -- verifies signal strength and channel conflicts, and provides a list of available channels.
  • Ethernet Verification -- provides link status and speed to ensure connectivity.

Sunrise Telecom expects the GTT test system to be available at the end of March.
