Telebyte Opens World’s First Independent G.vector Test Laboratory

UNH-IOL Tapped to Operate Telebyte’s Pioneering VDSL2 Vectoring Test Lab

Broadband World Forum 2013

AMSTERDAM--()--Today Telebyte, a US-based global xDSL test equipment solution provider, announced the opening of its G.vector Test Laboratory. The pioneering test lab, co-located at and operated by the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), will utilize Telebyte’s groundbreaking 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.

With speeds of up to 100 Mbps, VDSL2 vectoring continues to gain popularity as more and more service providers consider the competitive advantages of employing a technology that utilizes their existing copper network to provide next generation high speed Internet services. Service providers and governments around the world have realized that cost effective VDSL2 vectoring will accelerate their superfast broadband rollouts and have made VDSL2 vectoring their technology of choice.

“The Telebyte G.vector Test Laboratory satisfies an important need in the industry for independent VDSL2 vectoring testing services. Companies now have an avenue for independent testing on different levels of complexity and budget. This is a timely offering that can only help to propel VDSL2 Vectoring forward.”
- Olga Yashkova, Program Manager, Communications Test & Measurement Practice at Frost & Sullivan

Testing is a critical step in the deployment of any new equipment or software into the network. The Telebyte G.vector Test Laboratory offers advanced services and expertise to streamline the testing processes and help service providers and equipment vendors ensure their technology is ready for field trial or prime-time deployment. Leveraging 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, enabling them to meet the challenges of these new deployments and ensure that their equipment is truly ready for market

”The UNH-IOL is very excited about this new opportunity to collaborate with the broadband industry and service providers on the G.vector testing,” said Lincoln Lavoie, Senior Engineer for the UNH-IOL. “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 Lab 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. The laboratory can also accommodate customers who seek testing beyond the standard (e.g., with complex noise and interference such as Impulse, Alien Crosstalk, RFI or mechanical interruptions).

“As VDSL2 Vectoring continues to evolve, so do our product and service offerings,” said Michael Breneisen, President of Telebyte. “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.“
