HAUPPAUGE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Telebyte, Inc., the leader in Gfast physical-layer testing solutions today announced the publication of its Guide to Testing Gfast.
The convenient and timely publication follows the Broadband Forum’s IR-337 Gfast test specification which provides a set of functional, stability and performance test cases focusing on interoperability between CPEs and DPUs. This same specification is used by the University of New Hampshire (UNH-IOL) for Gfast certification testing.
“Interoperability between communication equipment vendors is critical to the success of Gfast,” said Robin Mersh, CEO of the Broadband Forum. “This guide should be very helpful to anyone who needs an introduction to Gfast Interop testing and is preparing for Broadband Forum Gfast Certification.”
For those not familiar with the required test equipment (e.g., digital analyzer, noise generator, cable farm automation switch and traffic generator), Gfast might seem rather daunting. While the actual ID-337 test specification provides the step-by-step details for all aspects of testing the standard, the Guide to Testing Gfast offers a higher-level look at the tests, along with equipment lists and connection diagrams. It is a simple way for anyone undertaking Gfast testing to understand what they need and how to configure their test bed in the most efficient manner.
“Our focus has been to optimize product features and provide a complete solution that meets the requirements of IR-337 and more,” said Michael Breneisen, President of Telebyte. “Our free guide is a convenient and informative summary of the tests and shows how to configure Telebyte’s solution for each of them.”
Telebyte’s free Guide to Testing Gfast is available now for download from www.gfastcertified.com
