xDSL Interoperability Testing

TRaC provides manufacturers with efficient and reliable xDSL Interoperability Testing services.

We are UKAS accredited to BS EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005, a Telecommunications Certification Body for the US and a Certification Assessment Body for Japan. TRaC has accreditations with ICASA (South Africa) and Telepermit (New Zealand), and our Telecommunications test reports are accepted around the globe, allowing easy access to alternative markets in addition to Europe.

When technology has a number of solutions and multiple combinations of connected equipment, the key focus is on interoperability. TRaC provides a series of physical and higher layer interoperability test cases to ensure that your Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) can dynamically interoperate with various digital subscriber line access multiplexers (DSLAMs).

TRaC’s extensive portfolio of DSLAMs allows manufacturers to be confident when devices are implemented on various networks across the world. This extensive network infrastructure also offers support across the regulatory requirements for testing, such as EMC emissions.

We can provide testing for CPE and DSLAMs against the European and North American requirements and help you test to the following worldwide recognised standards:

  • TIA-968-B-2
  • CS-03 Part 8

TRaC has the ability to test to international standards such as the ITU Telecommunication Standardisation Sector (ITU-T), and Broadband (DSL) Forum TR standards. The International standards we most commonly test to are as follows:

  • ADSL – ITU-T G.992.1
  • ADSL 2+ – ITU-T G99.2.5
  • VDSL2 – ITU-T G.993.2

We can assist you with the following Broadband (DSL) Forum standards:

  • TR-067
  • TR-100
  • TR-114
  • TR-115
