LARGO, Fla. -- Paradyne (NASDAQ:PDYN - News), a leading provider of triple play and business Ethernet access solutions, announced today it has integrated single-ended loop test (SELT) and dual-ended loop test (DELT) features into its Broadband Loop Carriers (BLCs), DSLAMs, and ADSL2+ modems.

Paradyne's SELT implementation includes a loop pre-qualification test integrated into the BLC or DSLAM to determine the strength of the DSL line, lowering the operator's DSL provisioning and maintenance expenses while accelerating customer service delivery.

With Paradyne's ADSL2+ modems, DELT provides bidirectional testing on lines, isolating sources of line interference in order to greatly reduce the time and costs associated with loop conditioning and broadband troubleshooting.

SELT and DELT are emerging as the standards for loop qualification and diagnostics, aiding in the elimination of costly external test equipment. By partnering with Broadcom, which offers integrated SELT and DELT capabilities in its ADSL2+ chipset, Paradyne provides cutting-edge test performance.

"Paradyne is a valued partner to Broadcom as the industry shifts toward ADSL2+. Our integrated SELT and DELT capabilities in Paradyne's equipment address the need for cost-effective and high-performance loop qualification, troubleshooting and maintenance," said John O'Neill, Broadcom's senior director of broadband carrier access products. "Using dedicated equipment for loop qualifications is expensive and only provides part of the solution. By integrating both SELT and DELT into their BLC and DSLAM products, Paradyne can provide a complete test suite to support equipment deployments throughout their life cycle."
