VeEX TX130M+ specification



The TX130M+ is perfectly suited for both in-service and out-of-service measurements on PDH/DSn legacy TDM networks. Out-of-service testing usually applies to the installation, commissioning and the “bringing into service” measurements needed to qualify a digital transmission link using industry standard test patterns and methods. In-service testing is an important, ongoing maintenance task - field technicians can monitor PCM signals for errors, alarms, level, frequency and pulse shape to prevent service degradation. The transmitter and receiver can be configured independently to perform MUX tests and round trip delay measurements are possible at various points across the network using any of the test interfacesVeEX TX130M+ Transmission


Irrespective of Ethernet service being installed, it is always necessary to verify that the network can carry out and cope with the allocated bandwidth required by the customer. Service Level Agreements (SLA) thus compel service providers to measure network throughput and other performance characteristics to ensure that bandwidth associated with different service types conform to customer expectations.

VeEX TX130M+ Ethernet
Synchronized Packet Network and Mobile Backhaul Testing – Mobile operators confronted with the explosive growth of data-centric services driven by 3G and LTE Smartphone applications, are urgently upgrading and migrating traditional TDM backhaul networks to Ethernet/IP packet-based technologies. The TX130M+ tester equipped with a hybrid of interfaces and applications is perfectly equipped to test both PDH/DSn and IP transport over copper and fiber backhaul connections across the Radio Access Network (RAN).IEEE 1588v2/PTP – Packet based synchronization mechanism: master clock emulation, ordinary/slave clock emulation, capture/analysis of PTP messages and PDV analysis.ITU-T G.8261 SyncE – Recovers the clock signal from “bit stream”, similar to traditional SONET/SDH/PDH. Wander and frequency measurement of the recovered clock.VeEX TX130M+ Ethernet
