Quick connection test results with JDSU DSLAM


[link to this post]
 
A BTO person has just done a test using a JDSU configured as a DSLAM at the pole, 50m from the house, which is connected by a 4-pair cable.
ulty.

My modem saw these line attenuations ...

Line attenuation (dB) U0 U1 U2 U3 D1 D2 D3
15 Apr 2016 11:05:05 N/A 4.4 9.5 N/A 3.0 6.4 11.1

Signal attenuation (dB) U0 U1 U2 U3 D1 D2 D3
15 Apr 2016 11:05:05 N/A 4.4 9.5 N/A 3.0 6.4 11.1


The line connected at full speed for a 17a profile, but are these attenuation values proper for such a short run? I see other people report essentially 0dB values when they are close to the cabinet, hence I am a little suspicious.


added other stats for completeness below

Can you post QLN, Hlog & Bitloading graphs?

The OP describes it as pole to house, i.e. dropwire, there has never been aluminium dropwire.

In all honesty I think it isn't really a valid test at all.

We were told that using a JDSU to generate an ADSL signal was a pointless excise, and on top of that could in some cases goose end users BB CPE. I daresay it is likely to be similar for VDSL, not a 'true signal'.

You have to wonder why the engineer was running such a test in the first place, it would have proved [censored] all really.

Good point. Maybe we could compare with live stats?
