Harris Corp. Launches Advanced Line of Telecom Testing Products for Europe.Business Editors & High-Tech Writers
CAMARILLO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 2001
Harris Corp. (NYSE NYSE
See: New York Stock Exchange :HRS) has announced that it will launch its new line of telecom test equipment designed for the European market at CeBIT, an annual international trade show specializing in information and telecommunications technologies.
These products include a comprehensive basic rate handheld ISDN ISDN
in full Integrated Services Digital Network
Digital telecommunications network that operates over standard copper telephone wires or other media. tester, a family of passive monitors for troubleshooting European ISDN lines at the S-interface, a pair of testers to identify the error and alarm status of E1 circuits and a test telephone for use in customer premises and exchange testing. They will be unveiled March 22-28 in Hannover, Germany, in Hall 17, Booth B9.
The TS(R)350 test set is a comprehensive basic rate tester used to test, verify and troubleshoot European ISDN lines at the customer premises. This product tests both analog and digital services over copper lines, allowing carriers to purchase a single tool to accomplish a variety of installation, commissioning and maintenance testing Maintenance testing is that testing which is performed to either identify equipment problems, diagnose equipment problems or to confirm that repair measures have been effective. It can be performed at either the system level (e.g., the HVAC system), the equipment level (e.g. needs.
In addition to providing easy go/no-go ISDN testing needing little or no interpretation, the TS350 test set performs plain old telephone service (POTS) testing, protocol analysis at the S-interface, and determines and identifies intermittent protocol problems or obscure configuration anomalies, all at a competitive price.
For troubleshooting European ISDN lines at the S-bus, Harris' new family of monitors -- the TS320 basic rate (BRI See ISDN.
BRI - Basic Rate Interface ) monitor, the TS420 primary rate (PRI PRI: see Institutional Revolutionary party.
(Primary Rate Interface) An ISDN service that provides 23 64 Kbps B (Bearer) channels and one 64 Kbps D (Data) channel (23B+D), which is equivalent to the 24 channels of a T1 line. ) monitor and the TS430 combination BRI/PRI monitor -- are the most cost-effective, accurate tools on the market.
The TS320 BRI monitor offers basic rate protocol monitoring to analyze the basic rate interface at Layers 1, 2 and 3. The TS420 PRI monitor is designed to monitor the primary rate interface to verify that the network protocol and terminal equipment are functioning correctly at Layers 1, 2 and 3. The TS430 combination BRI/PRI monitor alerts technicians as to which interface is currently active. It then decodes alarms in Layer 1 and indicates loss of signal, frame synchronization While receiving a stream of framed data, frame synchronization is the process by which incoming frame alignment signals, i.e., distinctive bit sequences (a syncword), are identified, i.e. and distant alarms, which can then be isolated and repaired. At Layer 3, the unit decodes the complete sequence for specific call references, and each message is decoded and latched.
Another versatile group of testers is the TS400 E1 probe and TS410 E1 transceiver. Both these testers monitor, bridge and terminate 2 Mbit/s PCM (1) See phase change memory.

Alarms that can be monitored include loss of signal, alarm indication signal “AIS-P” redirects here. For the data packet protocol, see Automatic Independent Surveillance-Privacy.

Error indicators include framing word error, CRC coding error, bipolar line code error and unframed BER (1) (Basic Encoding Rules) A set of encoding rules for ASN.1 notation, which is a method for defining data structures.

Harris is also introducing its TS27 test telephone, a robust, reliable tester for use in customer premises and exchange testing. This test set meets all of Harris' stringent quality standards, as well as the requirements of most international telephone operators.
