UTEL's Test modes

Normal Test

This is UTELs basic test mode and is ideal for CSPs who are dealing with faulty lines and need to prove the fault onto their own equipment or another CSPs equipment. The customers line pair is switched to the testhead as two pairs allowing the opertaor to look 'in' or 'out'. This provides enough testing capability to prove where the fault is in the network.

Surf & Test

Surf and test has been designed and patented by UTEL. The customers line is diverted to the testhead as two pairs but the high pass signal is not broken. This means the customers modem remains operational* and stays in use during testing. Testing can be carried out on a customers line to prove a fault or as part of a night test routine schedule.

Test & Talk

Test and Talk has been designed and patented by UTEL. The customers line is diverted to the testhead as two pairs but the low pass signal is not broken. This means the customers audio line remains operational** and remains usable during testing. Testing can be carried out on a customers line to prove a fault or as part of a night test routine schedule.

* Assumes the fault being tested is not on the high pass circuit
** Assumes the fault being tested is not on the low pass circuit
