This revised release adds a range of features to the SCU, including local and remote testing capabilities and full compliance with the recently approved ANSI standard for HDSL2. ADC customers currently operating under earlier system releases can upgrade to System Release 3.0.
Under System Release 3.0, users can employ the SCU to provide DS1 local loop testing services through the Remote Test Access Unit (RTAU) at costs much less than those typically associated with an external field test set. Additionally, System Release 3.0 enables those users who currently rely exclusively on external test sets to perform remote metallic loop qualification before circuit turn-up. In many instances, this capability saves the cost of dispatching an outside plant technician into the field by isolating and identifying loop problems early at the network operations center See NOC.
