EVERETT, Wash. -- Fluke Networks, provider of innovative Network SuperVision Solutions(TM) for the testing, monitoring and analysis of enterprise and telecommunications networks, announces the release of a new VDSL Golden Modem option for the Series II family of CopperPro Test Sets. Adding VDSL capability to CopperPro's existing ADSL2+ and copper loop test abilities lets carriers install, verify and troubleshoot more types of broadband circuits faster, with less equipment and with more complete documentation of results.

Supports multiple manufacturers, allows future upgrades

The CopperPro VDSL Golden Modem is designed to support a wide range of equipment interoperability through the application of unique on-board software. It emulates both central office and subscriber equipment (VTU-C and VTU-R). Not only does this assure compatibility with a wide range of DSL equipment from many manufacturers, it also protects customers' investments by making it possible to update modems as equipment and requirements change.

In addition to providing complete DSL connection statistics, the CopperPro Series II Golden Modems can verify IP connectivity with its PING test. All common connection types are supported, including PPoE, PPoA and DHCP. There is also a transparent-bridged mode to allow the golden modem to substitute for the subscriber modem, permitting the user to connect a PC to the DSL line. PING targets can be specified by IP address or domain name.
